Gov. Kristi Noem signed SB 44 into law on Thursday, putting South Dakota one step closer to taking its first legal sports bets. The bill was sent to Noem last week after being approved by the legislature.
Sports betting in South Dakota will be permitted at Deadwood casinos. Players can wager at sports betting windows, kiosks or through a mobile app inside the casinos.
Voters overwhelmingly approved legalized sports wagering at Deadwood casinos in November.
