West Virginia is known for its rather conservative way of life and laws, but when it comes to gambling, it is one of the most progressive states in the U.S. Betting on horse racing has been legal in WV since the 1930s, and the same goes for greyhound tracks. The big break for legal sports betting came in 2018 when the US Supreme Court’s ruling overturned the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act and gave each state the authority to create their own laws surrounding sports betting. West Virginia led the way in sports betting legalization and became the fifth legal sports betting state in the US in August 2018.
