FanDuel reignites West Virginia mobile sports betting

By Tim Poole

FanDuel has launched its first sportsbook app in West Virginia, reigniting the state’s sports betting market after over five months without mobile wagering.

BetLucky previously offered mobile betting in the Mountain State; however, a dispute involving Delaware North, Miomni and Entergaming resulted in the closure of BetLucky ‘s sports wagering operations in West Virginia.

FanDuel has now entered the state, where it will hope to continue the success it enjoys in New Jersey, offering West Virginia's players the option of wagering online once more.

FanDuel is also live in Pennsylvania; its sportsbook is supplied by IGT’s PlaySports platform across all three states.

In partnership with The Greenbrier, the operator will offer both iOS and Android apps, having launched in time for the American Football season.

MGM Resorts International's President of Interactive Gaming, Scott Butera, recently spoke exclusively to Gambling Insider about competing with FanDuel and DraftKings in the online space.
