Legislation that authorizes the Lottery Commission to introduce games whose winning tickets are determined by the outcome of a horse race, HB 2943 was filed for the second consecutive year in West Virginia last week. The effort is part of a long term strategy to create lottery games that bring live sports appeal to the lottery industry and increase the popularity of horse racing across the U.S. and Canada.

“We are committed to working with our friends in West Virginia to bring our exciting twist on horse racing and lottery to the state,” said EquiLottery Founder and CEO Brad Cummings.
