West Virginia Online Gaming

In July 2016, Attorney General Patrick Morrisey determined that daily fantasy sports are not illegal in the state. S 529, a bill aiming to regulate the DFS industry, passed the Senate by 18-16 in February 2016, but hasn't seen movement since.

In March 2019, the West Virginia Lottery Interactive Wager Act automatically became law when Gov. Jim Justice let the veto window pass. The law legalized online casino gambling in West Virginia, providing one license for each of West Virginia's five casinos. There was no firm launch date set for the first West Virginia online casino, as regulations and the application process still needed to be outlined. The WV Lottery had until June 2020 to finalize regulations. WV Lottery Director John Myers was quoted as saying the timeline was prudent considering the upcoming 2020 election and the 2021 inauguration.

In May 2020, the West Virginia Lottery Commission implemented regulations allowing for the launch of internet casino gaming and in July DraftKings and BetMGM launched online casinos.
