Kansas Sports Betting: Launch Unlikely Ahead of Week 1 of the NFL Season

Week 1 of the NFL Season is huge for a multitude of reasons, but for Kansas, it is a very clear target for the launch of Kansas sports betting.

The decision-makers know just how important meeting this date could be, as missing the chance to bet on week 1 of the NFL action, will see a huge missed opportunity in terms of sports betting revenue. Both the Wyoming sports betting and Arizona sports betting markets found themselves in similar quandaries last year, but got over the line in the nick of time.

Will Kansas sports betting follow suit? The latest reports today, suggest it is unlikely.

Regardless of whether Kansas sports betting goes live on week 1 of the NFL or not, the DraftKings Kansas promo code and FanDuel Kansas promo code reward you with a $100 pre-registration bonus each, so sign up today!

What Do We Already Know?

There is a lot of vague information out there in regards to the Kansas sports betting launch, but very few certainties at this stage, including and most important a launch date.

Today, it has been suggested that a launch in time for Week 1 of the NFL Season is unrealistic and unlikely, as the Kansas Racing and Gaming Commission attempt to temper expectations.

Director of Wagering for the KRGC, Todd Allen said that regulation drafts were approved and were now being sent to the Attorney General's office, but beyond that, we are still in the dark.

Allen also pointed out that with temporary regulations in play, that there were currently less steps to get over, to launch, but the expectation is still that Week 1 of the NFL season will come too soon.
