How to buy gambling stocks

Sign up with an online broker or platform to invest in one or more of these gambling stocks.

  2. Open and fund your brokerage account. You’ll need personal and financial details, like your contact and bank information.
  3. Search for the stock you're interested in. Find the stock by name or ticker symbol, like SGMS or DKNG.
  4. Decide on how many to buy. Some brokers will allow you to purchase fractional shares, while others require you to purchase whole shares.

Bottom line

While it’s possible to turn a profit investing in gambling stocks, keep in mind that — like any investment — gambling stocks are not immune to risk. These stocks are subject to fluctuating conditions — both in the market and in the betting industry, so carefully vet your picks before you invest. And if you’re new to investing, or if it’s been awhile since you’ve taken a critical look at your investing accounts, compare brokers to make sure you’re getting the best features in your trading account.
