Online sports betting in Wyoming is legal and operational. Wyoming is one of just a few states to pass legislation authorizing online sports betting but not retail sportsbooks. However, tribal casino operators in Wyoming have stated they intend to offer retail sports betting under existing tribal compacts with the state.

Under state law, Wyoming sports betting apps may accept customers 18 or older and located within state lines. Licensed Wyoming sportsbooks may offer wagers on professional and college sports, amateur competitions such as the Olympics, and esports.

Other forms of legal online gambling in Wyoming include pari-mutuel horse racing betting (advance deposit wagering) and daily fantasy sports. In-person gambling options include several tribal casinos, pari-mutuel betting, historical horse racing machines at race tracks, and the state lottery.

State of Wyoming Sports Betting Overview

The law passed to create legal sports betting in Wyoming creates an industry-friendly market that likely will invite competition from the biggest names in the US industry. State law requires that regulators hand out at least five WY sports betting licenses. However, there is no established cap, leaving open the possibility of more.

The state features mobile sports wagering through multiple operators because there are no commercial casinos in the state. Two Native American tribes operate four tribal casinos. Since those tribes can offer Class III gaming, they also would receive the right to offer sports betting at their casinos.

There are four legal mobile apps for sports betting in Wyoming starting with DraftKings, FanDuelCaesars, and BetMGM. Two more apps, PointsBet and Barstool, are approved for licenses and could launch in the coming months.

You can bet legally on sports from your phone. Today, a couple of legal options exist to place bets on a phone from Wyoming.

Wyoming betting apps offer welcome bonuses to new customers as an incentive to sign up, deposit, and place their first wagers. Although Wyoming is a relatively small sports betting market by population, it is a competitive market. As a result, the best Wyoming sportsbooks are willing to invest in promotions upfront to earn long-term customers.

Wyoming sports betting regulations address promotions and require operators to explain all offers in “clear and unambiguous terms.” At a minimum, sportsbooks must disclose the following information for every promotion: How long the offer is active and when it expires, Customer eligibility and limitations on participation, Restrictions on the withdrawal of funds, wagering requirements and limitations on events or wager types, The order in which funds are used for wagers, Rules regarding cancellation.

Wyoming law also requires operators to provide a simple method for customers to cancel their participation in any promotion that includes wagering requirements.
