In March of 2018, before the PASPA supreme Court ruling, West Virginia passed an act which effectively legalised sports betting in the state. The Act preempted the Senate ruling and allowed the West Virginia Lottery Commission to immediately issue licenses.
Three physical sportsbooks were granted licenses in quick succession, but then everything just slowed to a halt. There were a number of reasons for this including a failed app launch by BetLucky and the fact that other states, with larger populations like NJ, also legalised sports betting.
However, West Virginia's turn has finally arrived. Two of the US' largest sportsbooks FanDuel and DraftKings have launched apps.
We expect many more sportsbooks to follow suit. William Hill already has a physical presence in the state, so it can only be a matter of time before they offer mobile wagering.
