Can You Play Online Poker in North Dakota?

There is currently no legislation permitting online poker in the state.

Current North Dakota Gambling Laws

Licensed horse racing and dog racing are allowed in North Dakota, as is betting on race simulcasts and pari-mutuel wagering. The state was somewhat of a latecomer when it came to introducing a lottery, finally doing so in 2004. Meanwhile, lawmakers in the traditionally conservative state have begun to consider sports betting, with the House passing a bill in early 2019.

Two types of casinos are allowed in the state, those that are Native American-owned on reservations, and nonprofit "charitable gaming" casinos allowed to offer a variety of gambling games (though no slot machines.)

Numerous small poker rooms can be found at each type of establishment, such as at the Sky Dancer Casino in Belcourt and Spirit Lake Casino in St. Michael.

While lawmakers might be starting to consider sports betting, there is no legal push at present to consider online poker. The last significant effort in that regard came with the introduction of a bill in 2005, though it did not advance much further.
