Can You Play Online Poker in Virginia?

Regulation is currently under discussion.

Current Virginia Gambling Laws

Casinos and greyhound racing are currently prohibited in Virginia. While horse racing was once allowed, that market has dried up as its last racetrack, Colonial Downs, is being converted into a golf course.

However, the state does offer five off-track betting parlors and allows for some charitable gambling. There's also a state lottery that includes Mega Millions and Powerball.

For years it looked as if Virginia would have nothing to do with online gaming, but an online gambling expansion bill in 2019 — one that passed the House, Senate, and received a signature from Governor Ralph Northam — brought about new hope of casinos, online poker, and sports betting coming to the state.

The bill was signed into law in March 2019 and opens the door for land-based casinos in the state. It also touches upon online gambling but fails to delve into specifics.
