Alabama Approves Sports Betting

Alabama House approves plan for lottery, casinos, sports betting

A plan to allow a lottery, casinos, and legal sports betting in Alabama passed the Alabama House of Representatives who approved a proposed constitutional amendment. The House approved the bill by a vote of 70-32. It took at least 63 votes, three-fifths of the House, to approve the constitutional amendment that is needed to authorize the expansion of legal gambling.

The legislation now moves to the Senate. It would create an Alabama Gaming Commission that would license up to seven casinos and include a law enforcement division.

The Legislative Services Agency estimates the net state revenue at up to $492 million from the casinos, up to $379 million from the lottery, and up to $41 million from sports betting. Sports betting could be done at the casinos or on mobile apps.

The legislation would create the Alabama Gaming Commission and allow it to license up to seven casinos. Six of those casinos would be designated for these locations — Birmingham, Mobile County, Macon County, Greene County, Lowndes County, and Houston County.

The seventh casino would be contingent on the state agreeing to a compact with the Poarch Band of Creek Indians. Under a compact, the Poarch Creeks could operate a casino in northeast Alabama, in addition to the three they now operate in Atmore, Wetumpka, and Montgomery.

The bill establishes the Alabama Lottery Corporation to run the lottery, which could include an Alabama lottery, multi-state lotteries, instant or scratch-off games, and other games.
