West Virginia Sports Betting Locations
Technically, there are retail sportsbooks located at five WV Casinos, where people can place a wager.
However, Wheeling Island Casino and Mardi Gras Casino are not offering sports betting at the moment. This is due to an ongoing legal battle between Delaware North, who operates the casino, and Mionmi Gambling, who provides their sports betting technology.
Until the lawsuit has been settled, bettors will not be able to place sports bets at these two retail sportsbooks.
Also, The Greenbrier is a private resort, which means it is only available to members and guests of the hotel.
Therefore, people practically have two retail sportsbooks they can visit, which are, Hollywood Casino at Charles Town, and the William Hill Sportsbook at Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack, and Resort.

|FanDuel Sportsbook at The GreenBrier||White Sulphur Springs|

Hollywood Casino Charles Town is the largest retail sportsbook in the state. In fact, their sportsbook accounts for 75% of all sports betting in West Virginia.
On top of this, Penn National Gaming, who operates the Hollywood Casino, became the land-based partner of DraftKings. Since their partnership launched in 2019 they have been successfully accepting online sports wagers at DraftKings Sportsbook WV.
Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack & Resort
The William Hill Sportsbook at The Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack & Resort is situated in New Cumberland near the border between West Virginia and Ohio.
In September 2020, the partnership was announced for William Hill Sportsbook to operate as the Mountaineer Casino Sportsbook. As a result of the partnership, William Hill Sportsbook WV launched and accepts online sports wagers.
The Casino Club at The Greenbrier Resort

Daily Fantasy Sports Betting in West Virginia
In most states, the legality of Daily Fantasy Sports has largely hinged on whether the state determines it a game of skill or a game of chance. In the case of West Virginia, there is no specific legislation deeming daily fantasy sports legal or illegal. As a result, DFS becomes de facto legal status, because the State Attorney General judged DFS not to contravene previous state betting law prohibiting games of chance.
In other words, daily fantasy sports is legal in West Virginia and you can play at one of these top DFS sites now.
