WV Sports Betting 2018
From the moment the PASPA was revoked, WV regulators jumped at the chance to regulate a new form of tax revenue and inject a huge opportunity for sports entertainment to the state. Now, WV resorts and casinos are allowed to offer sportsbooks, and online sports betting is coming soon too.
If you’re a resident of WV, or even just passing through, you’ll be able to bet on sports online from your computer and even your mobile phone. Lawmakers know that this measure is important to pass through before too much of the NFL season has gone by.
The biggest place to make a sports bet in the Mountain State is the Greenbrier Resort and Casino. Here, there is a sportsbook powered by Fanduel. Fanduel will be taking this product totally online and on mobile when the appropriate rules are regulated.
