WynnBET Secures West Virginia Access for Sports Betting, Casino
It’s now just a matter of time until WynnBET Sportsbook starts taking sports bets in West Virginia.
On Tuesday, WynnBET announced a partnership with Delaware North in order to gain market access to West Virginia for both sportsbook and casino operations. Delaware North owns and operates a pair of West Virginian casinos — Wheeling Island Hotel Casino Racetrack in Wheeling and Mardi Gras Casino & Resort near Charleston — and both of those operate retail sportsbooks.
Moving into the West Virginia sports betting market means WynnBET will be adding an 18th state to its surging jurisdiction in the U.S. Not all of its current states have sportsbook access, but the legislative and regulatory climate of sports betting is changing rapidly.
For now, WynnBET sportsbook operates in Arizona, Colorado, Indiana, Michigan, New Jersey, Tennessee and Virginia. Based on current negotiations and legislative processing that’s taking place elsewhere, the company is working toward a coverage footprint that accounts for 77% of the U.S. population.
West Virginia bettors are likely familiar with WynnBET if they’ve traveled across the border and wagered on Virginia sports betting sites.
When WynnBET launches sports betting in WV, new customers can expect a robust welcome offer. In other states where it has launched sportsbooks, the offer has been a $1,000 risk-free first bet.
It joins a growing West Virginia casino space as well. It’s welcome offer for new casino players in Michigan, for example, has been a 100% deposit match up to $1,000 with a 10x playthrough and free spins offers. Be sure to bookmark our WynnBET promo codes for the latest.
