Sports betting is also known as a form of gambling where you place a certain amount of money on a predicted outcome of a sporting event. It is usually done for the purpose of earning additional money. Sports betting can only have two outcomes: you lose the money you wagered or you win a profit if your bet was right. This form of betting is also done in the entertainment industry for example, who will be the winner of this season’s ‘The Bachelor’. There are also organizations and establishments that cater to sports betting services called bookmakers or betting agencies.

Compared to gambling at a casino, the outcome of you winning a bet cannot be measured as it can only be estimated. Sports betting requires good research, as can be found on SoccerVista, and patience given that you are only predicting the probability of your preferred outcome.

Sports betting was legalized in early 2019, both in retail and mobile competitions. Unfortunately, due to the global pandemic caused by the Coronavirus, the opening of legal sports betting places in Washington has been delayed. Gambet DC, an online platform for legalized sports betting, is the only available program for those who still want to be involved in bettings during this time. Given that the geofencing rule is not applicable for this application, the sport-better within DC is able to use this platform. Regarding the taxes that are involved, all taxes are set at 10% on all revenue, even for online or internet sport betting.

Is on-site based sports betting legal in Washington, D.C.?

Yes! Although there are no actual places like casinos for land-based sports betting, there are specific locations where there are kiosks that cater to that. Similar to buying a movie ticket, customers, in this case sports-betters, fall in line and then place their bets for the game/s they have been eyeing on. During the cases that you win a bet, you go back to the kiosk to check-out the amount of revenue you have won.

Other locations, like stadiums, hold a legal sports betting room or facility inside as a game is about to start. This is open for everyone who wants to participate as long as you are 18 years old and above. Self-service kiosks can also be found near a lot of stadiums and places around DC that are very easily accessible.

What about online sports betting? Is that legal?

As said, online sports betting is very much legal in Washington, DC. as there are online platforms where customers can gamble on the games that they prefer. Although there are specific rules that apply to online sports betting, general rules like age limit are the same as on-site based sports betting. DC Lottery is one of a few operators that can be used for placing bets online. In this sportsbook app, you can sign up and use the platform to place your specific bets. The only condition is that the user should be within Washington, DC to use the application.
