West Virginia passed legislation in March of 2018 that officially legalized sports betting in the state. The bill (SB 415) set out a path for both brick-and-mortar and online sports betting to role out in the state.
By August 2018, brick and mortar sportsbooks were open across the state, online betting was live across the state by the end of the year. By mid-2019 both FanDuel and DraftKings were offering online and mobile sports betting to WV residents.
Today, there are four legitimate online sportsbooks operating in West Virginia. That being said, additonal sportsbooks could enter the market as the state's legislation allows the casinos to partner with more than one online betting provider.
West Virginia passed as bettor-friendly of a bill as we have seen in the United States. There are no restrictions regarding what sports or teams you can bet on in the state. This means WV residents can bet on in-state college sports teams and events.
For those wondering what restrictions are in place, there are three rules bettors should be aware of:
In addition to these regulations, it is worth noting that online casino, poker, and horse racing is also legal in West Virginia. Each of the sportsbooks listed at the top of this page offers a casino app. Simply search the App Store or Play Store for the casino app for the book of your choice.
No sports restrictions not only means WV residents can bet on any college sporting event but also every major domestic and international sporting event. Additionally, West Virginians can wager on e-sports, which is something several states, including Colorado, have recently elected to ban.
Live betting is also available in the state. Sportsbooks like FanDuel, DraftKings, BetMGM, and William Hill all offer polished live betting engines on both their website and app. Live betting is available during all professional sporting events, and most division one college football and baskebtall games. All four books will have live betting options throughout March Madness.
To keep legal sports betting from negatively affecting the bottom line of the existing casinos in the state, WV legislators required online sportsbooks to partner with one of the state's five casinos prior to operating in the state. As of March 2021, each of the five casinos in West Virginia has a partnership in place with an online sportsbook.
Each casino is allowed to make multiple partnerships, so it appears likely there will be additional sportsbooks in West Virginia by the time the 2021 NFL season kicks off.
Below is a rundown of each of the casino/sportsbook partnerships in West Virginia. Yes, you can bet online in a brick-and-mortar sportsbook at each of these locations. However, with remote registration you do not need to go to a sportsbook to open an account, you can do so in the app or on the website.
|Online Book||Casino Partner||Launch Date|
|Betly||Wheeling Island Casinos||September 2020|
|BetMGM||The Greenbrier||January 2020|
|DraftKings Sportsbook||Hollywood Casino Charles Town||August 2019|
|FanDuel Sportsbook||The Greenbrier||August 2019|
|William Hill||Mountaineer Casino||February 2021|
West Virginia bettors opening a new account with any of the licensed sportsbooks in the state are able to take advantage of a bonus code offer. Bonus offers are often only available to new players, making this your only chance to grab free cash from your sportsbook of choice.
Here is a rundown of the various types of new player promotions available to West Virginia sports bettors this March:
Deposit Bonus - West Virginia residents that register using our current DraftKings bonus code will receive a deposit bonus. A deposit bonus is essentially a cash bonus that is equal to a percent of your initial deposit. Bonus funds received from a deposit bonus are typically subject to some sort of rollover requirement.
Free Bets - Many sportsbooks elect to give players a free bet when they register. Free bet offers are often restricted to spread bets, moneyline bets, or total bets. Anything you win from a free bet typically must be wagered at least one additional time prior to withdrawing. This is called a rollover and is an industry-standard policy.
Risk-Free Bets - Risk free bets are the most common offer in the US this March. In fact, every one of our sportsbook partners is offering some sort of risk-free bonus for the 2020 Euros. This includes all three of our preferred West Virginia sportsbook apps.
Our two highest-rated sportsbook offers for West Virginia bettors this June come from BetMGM and BetRivers. The offer from BetMGM includes an instant $120 payout on your first $10 wager, regardless of the outcome. The BetRivers deposit bonus offer includes a 100% bonus, up to $250, with a 1x rollover requirement.
The West Virginia sports betting market has been an interesting one to track over the past two years. WV opened with a sportsbook operator that is no longer in WV, added FanDuel and DraftKings in 2019, added BetMGM in 2020, and now will add William Hill in 2021.
With so many changes in the state's sports betting industry, bettors in WV have plenty of questions and concerns. We address the majority of these in the FAQs below.
