In Massachusetts, you can wager on sports without issue since sports betting is legal. They passed a commonwealth sports betting bill that would allow online sportsbooks to become legal. This works under a temporary license that operators must purchase for $1 million.

Outside of sports betting, Massachusetts closes off all other choices for online gambling. We don't see future plans for the state to make it legal. Daily fantasy sports betting is considered legal in the state of Massachusetts. This is because people gamble on the outcome of the selected players, rather than on the outcome of a game. Like in Arkansas, they consider fantasy sports betting more skill-based than gambling.

You can't play online poker in Massachusetts since they offer no legal routes to do it. In addition, we see no future plans to where they might legalize online poker either. The state offers no legal route to online lottery tickets either. You can, however, purchase them from one of the many retail outlets in the state.

Several bills have been put forth over time, but we have seen no shift in the attitude toward legalizing online gambling. It isn't likely in this state any more than you would consider it likely in Kansas. At least for the time, there appears to be no moves to legalize it, but you do have nearby states like Delaware, New Jersey and Pennsylvania where you could do online gambling.
