It is legal to bet on the Bovada website from Texas as well as a few dozen other popular online sports betting sites accessible to those living in the Lone Star State. Gambling911.com recommends BetOnline for its generous welcome bonus and massive variety of betting options (max bonus $1000)
The U.S. Supreme Court ruled to allow sports betting in all 50 states last May.
In most cases, each state will need to amend their own laws to allow sportsbooks to actually operate within their borders. This won’t happen any time soon in Texas as the state is not particularly friendly towards gambling.
Bovada has been taking bets from the state of Texas since 2001 when they were previously known as Bodog. Sites like BetOnline have existed as call centers and have existed since 1999. BetOnline is endorsed by Gambling911.com.
