West Virginia sports betting is now legal

3 Sep 2018

West-virginia-sports-bettingSports betting has now gone legal in West Virginia as they join the ranks of New Jersey, Delaware and the state of Nevada. Local political authorities take great pride in the system that has been put in place to regulate the sports betting industry in West Virginia, even promoting it as a model for other states for their regulatory needs.

The significant legislative change will be celebrated through a sports book event taking place at a Hollywood casino during the Charles Town Races in Jefferson County, just in time for the beginning of the College American Football season. However, an unofficial inauguration event has already taken place, at which Delegate Jason Barrett put down the first-ever bet on the West Virginia Mountaineers for the national championship. Barrett was visibly enthusiastic about the way the legislation framework has been implemented in West Virginia and Pennsylvania.

New Bill's Estimated Costs and Revenues

West Virginia MetroNews published estimates from trusted legislation sources that they expect revenue from sports betting in the first year of the new framework to rise to $5.5m. Licensing fees for the operation of the five casinos in West Virginia so far stand at $100,000, plus a 10% tax on gross revenue, as shown on receipts issued. The state is the first in the US to allow sports betting, with Hollywood casino being the first establishment to offer a sportsbook in the region. Hollywood Casino also received the endorsement of William Hill, which has already partnered with 12 operators in West Virginia and Mississippi so far.

Hollywood Casino also holds the US first so far for sportsbook services that are ready just in time for the upcoming college football season, with Greenbrier Resort Casino likely to follow up next.

BOOK SPY BONUS REVIEW

Established in 1934, William Hill is one of the true betting pioneers. The football, horse, and greyhound zones are packed, with hundreds of betting options and races available every day. There are so many website languages, and customer support is accessible 24/7. It keeps adding betting features, like Bet Builder and Request a Bet, and you can win up to £2,000,000 in football's top leagues. If you asked me 7 years ago, I would have told you that William Hill is the thε world’s best sportsbook. However, today is a different story. Even though the winning limits are incredibly high, you will see your account restricted very fast if you are a successful bettor. Besides, the overall payout is below par, even for football betting. Finally, if you are not looking to bet on horse racing, you will not be dazzled by what is available. Overall, William Hill offers a solid product for UK sports, but I would like to see the sportsbook improve the international offering as well.
