In the State of Minnesota, statute 609.755(1) refers to acts relating to gambling, which are misdemeanors, and refers to, ‘Making a Bet,’ as such an act. Misdemeanors in the state are punishable by up to ninety days in jail, a fine of up to $1,000, or both.
Sports bookmaking is a felony in the state and operating other houses of gambling are considered. ‘Gross Misdemeanors,’ by which fines can range up to $3,000 and an individual can be imprisoned for up to one year. In that sense, the potential theoretical penalties for unlawful gambling are more stringent for operators than they are for mere players.
In terms of arrests, twelve arrests were made in connection with an illegal lottery operation.
No cases can be found of individuals being arrested for participating as players in online gambling in their own homes or elsewhere.
While there was an effort in the Legislature to regulate DFS, that effort has since stalled out, however, it does not appear that DFS wagering is actually illegal in the state despite that fact.
Ultimately, the law does not mention online gambling specifically, but it does call for penalties for both players and operators who are engaged in unlawful gambling. It is difficult to say whether online gambling would fall under the law, but reading the law in plain language would lead one to conclude that yes, it could. However, there have been no arrests of mere players within the state and there probably never will be. Furthermore, DFS is legal in the state as of this time, or so it would seem, so we are going to consider the state lightly restrictive.
