California voters launched two sports betting initiatives on Nov. 8 that would have allowed in-person betting at racetracks and tribal casinos, as well as online sports betting.
Current laws in the Golden State prohibit sports betting, roulette and craps, according to the California Legislature’s Office.
Types of gambling permitted include the state lottery, cardrooms, horse racing bets and tribal casinos.
Proposition 26 aimed to legalize in-person betting at racetracks and tribal casinos. It would allow privately owned racetracks and casinos to allow wagering except for high school and college games.
Mainstream tracks that would have been affected include Santa Anita Park, Los Alamitos, Del Marand Golden Gate Fields.
