West Virginia Sportsbetting Guide
West Virginia Sports Betting
West Virigina uniquely started early preparing for the anticipated repeal of PASPA. According to reports WV started due diligence throughout 2017 researching and creating infrastructure in the event the State was able to offering Legal Sports betting. In March 2018, two months prior to the succesful repeal of PASPA, West Virginia presented and passed bill S 415, the West Virginia Lottery Sports Wagering Act granting the state lottery the authority to set the rules for the states 5 casinos to offer legal sports betting. The bill also enabled the formation of rules around online betting solutions.
In August 2018 Charles Town Casino in WV accepted the first legal sports wager in the state. On August 26th 2019 FanDuel became the first legal online sportsbook in the State in partnership with the Greenbrier Casino Resort.
West Virginia is very operator friendly with low licensing fees and low taxes on gambling revenue. The potential size of the legal online sports betting market in the Mountaineer state is very small and therefore many operators have not rushed to start operations in West Virginia.
