Winners Inc subsidiary VegasWINNERS Inc, the affiliate provider of content, analysis, research, data, guidance and professional advice for sports bettors, has received approval from the State of West Virginia Lottery for a Sports Wagering Interim Supplier License.
With the license in place, the firm is now able to refer sports betting customers in the Mountain State to licensed sports books in return for commission payments.
CEO Wayne Allyn Root commented: “West Virginians are known as rabid basketball and football fans. Now that they can place legal wagers on sports, I’m certain West Virginia will become among the leading states for sports gaming.
“VegasWINNERS is excited and motivated to offer our sports advice and information services to the sports fans and bettors of West Virginia.”
The State of West Virginia’s handle, which is the total amount wagered on sports, increased from over $226m in 2019 to over $419m in 2020, marking a year-on-year growth rate of over 84%. Since its March 2018 launch date, West Virginia’s total handle has soared to over $878m.
VegasWINNERS is currently registered in several states and has made applications in additional states with a view to becoming licensed in all US jurisdictions that allow online sports gambling.
