Legalbet: bookmakers and sports betting

Mobile sportsbooks in West Virginia:

West Virginia first legalized sports betting in March 2018, becoming the fifth state to do so. After a positive decision on the matter from the SCOTUS in May, the law became active. The S 415 bill expanded upon the previous two attempts with the addition of a licensing and renewal fee set at $100,000 and set the tax rate to 10 percent of the operator’s revenue. 

West Virginia governor allowed the bill to become law despite the absence of his signature in March. The Hollywood Casino at Charles Town took the first bets on August 30 with a soft launch of its sportsbook. The full launch took place on September 1. 

The state also had its first mobile app with BetLucky which began accepting mobile wagers in December 2018. Unfortunately, BetLucky no longer operates in West Virginia after ceasing operations in March of 2019. 

This was due to a split between casino operator Delaware North and sports betting provider Miomni. BetLucky went offline after a third-party vendor issue with the latter. Due to these conflicts, operations were also suspended at the Mardi Gras and Wheeling Island casinos. 

West Virginia went five months without an online sportsbook provider when FanDuel brought its brand to the state and took the first bet on August 26, 2019. FanDuel took its first mobile bet just two days later though its own app. 

In order to ensure that mobile bets remain within the state, GeoComply will be operating geolocation services. This makes it possible to track for West Virginia to track bets and players are playing inside the state. According to the law, all mobile wagers must be made within West Virginia borders. 

Online sportsbooks:

  • FanDuel.com (Aug. 2019) 
  • DraftKings.com (Aug. 2019)


Land-based Sportsbooks: 

  • Hollywood Casino at Charles Town (DraftKings Sportsbook)
  • The Greenbrier (FanDuel Sportsbook)
  • Mountaineer Casino
  • Mardi Gras (Suspended)
  • Wheeling Island (Suspended)
