Kansas will take your sports bets now

This week, Kansas is joining the list of states where sports gambling is legal, just in time for the 2022 NFL season. Casinos and sports betting apps are eager to set up shop.

Sports fans in Kansas will soon to be able to wager on their favorite games. Betting can begin on Sept. 1, with the full program launching a week later. Meanwhile, sports betting remains illegal just next door in Missouri.

Up To Date's Steve Kraske sat down with Chris Reedy, vice president of the Butler National Corporation, and Max Bichsel, vice president of U.S. business at the Gambling.com Group, to talk about the ins and outs of sports gambling in Kansas.
