Note: On March 7, Mardi Gras Casino, Wheeling Island Hotel, and mobile app, BetLucky Sportsbook abruptly ceased operations. Delaware North cites a dispute between its technology provider, Miomni and a third-party service provider for the closure. The suspension of sports betting is said to be temporary. This is a developing story and we will share additional information as it becomes available.
Delaware North, the owner of both casinos, introduced the first mobile wagering service to the Mountain State. It put West Virginia in a group with New Jersey and Nevada as the only states with legal online sports betting platforms.
Wheeling Island and Mardi Gras Casino were the last two casinos to enter the West Virginia sportsbook market. However, after completing the West Virginia Lottery Commission testing, BetLucky was the first mobile sports betting app to go live when it launched on Dec. 27.
BetLucky mobile sports betting app
Powered by Miomni Gaming, BetLucky is available for iOS and Android users. Apple customers will be redirected to the App Store to download the mobile sportsbook app, while Android users can download the sportsbook directly from the website.
Customers can sign up, manage their funds, and view odds from anywhere. However, regulations require sports bettors must physically be within the borders of West Virginia to place wagers.
Additionally, all bettors must be 21 years of age or older to participate in WV sports betting.
Opening a BetLucky Sportsbook account
Creating a BetLucky account is easy. After downloading the app, you’ll need to enter:
- Your name
- Date of birth
- Last four digits of your Social Security Number
BetLucky asks for a scan of a government-issued id to verify a player’s identity before making sports betting available.
As mentioned, you do not need to be in West Virginia to open an account. In fact, you do not need to be a West Virginia resident to make sports bets on the BetLucky app.
However, all sports bets must originate within the borders of the state. BetLucky’s geolocation must place a player in West Virginia before the player can place a bet.
