West Virginia will become the 5th state in the U.S. to legalize online gaming once the governor signs House Bill 2934. It passed both chambers of the state legislature.
The bill, named the West Virginia Lottery Interactive Wagering Act, allows for five-year licences to be awarded to the state’s land-based casinos, at a cost of $250,000. iGaming will be taxed at 15% of gross gaming revenue. Operators will be able to offer online poker, slots and table games.
