West Virginia passes sports betting bill
13 Mar 2018
On 10 March 2018, a bill to legalize and regulate sports betting in West Virginia became law (pending the end of a federal ban on state-regulated sports betting). Eilers & Krejcik Gaming would like to congratulate partners at the West Virginia Lottery and everyone involved in the passage of the bill. West Virginia's decisive action ensures that it will be among the first wave of states to launch regulated sports betting in a post-PASPA world.
A special note of congratulations goes to Alan Larrick, Lottery Director for the West Virginia Lottery and Danielle Boyd, Managing General Counsel of the West Virginia Lottery. Their foresight and vision were critical to making legal sports betting in West Virginia a soon-to-be reality.
