Tuesday morning the Joint Budget Committee unanimously approved the rules for mobile sports betting in Arkansas, allowing Arkansan’s to place bets on smart phones beginning March 4, 2022.

Pine Bluff’s Saracen Casino released a statement regarding the ruling saying, “We’ve been working on BetSaracen for a year, so today’s vote is exciting for us and for Arkansas.”

Mobile sports betting will go on line in time for Arkansan’s to place bets on the 2022 NCAA basketball tournament, and more.

Deltaplex News will have more information on Tuesday’s approval as it becomes available.
