In May of 2018, the Supreme Court overruled a law that placed a federal ban on sports betting. This decision has given each state the power to legalize sports betting, both online and in-person. Nebraska will likely be one of the last states to introduce and legalize online sports betting and gambling legislation. It doesn't help that the state has no professional sports teams that residents can root for.

Nebraska Online Gambling FAQ
Unfortunately residents of Nebraska have very few options to choose from when it comes to gambling.
Are daily fantasy sports legal in Nebraska?
For those unfamiliar, Daily Fantasy Sports, or DFS, is a cross between fantasy football and legalized gambling. On a broad level, DFS contests are a subsection of fantasy sports. Players compete against their friends, or more often complete strangers to build a team of professional athletes under a given salary cap, and try and to outscore their opponents. Daily fantasy sports differ from traditional fantasy sports by having contests that last for an evening or the weekend, as opposed to having the same team for months.
