Sports Betting in Wyoming – 2023
Online sports betting in Wyoming was recently reviewed and legalized in 2021. For those looking to bet on sports, the only operator we currently recommend in Wyoming, is BetMGM.
Online Casino in Wyoming
Gambling at an online casino in Wyoming is not permitted for the residents. You can play at social casinos, which are available purely for enjoyment purposes with no actual money changing hands. Of course, there is the chance to win prizes, but most players who use social casinos in Wyoming do so for the free online games such as blackjack, video poker, and slots. Many Wyoming locals prefer to visit land-based casinos where the stakes are raised, and they can wager real money.
Online Poker in Wyoming
Online poker is not strictly permitted in the state of Wisconsin and is, therefore, illegal; despite it falling into a gray area around whether it is classed as gambling or not. Some residents see it as a line they are willing to cross, arguing that there is a great degree of skill involved in poker. The good news is that Wind River Casino has a small poker room open to players who want to enjoy a real-life game of Texas hold ’em.
Daily Fantasy in Wyoming
Daily Fantasy Sports are available in Wyoming, as long as you are 18 years and older, as there has been no legislation passed to outlaw it. The interpretation of the law relies on the fact that DFS is a skill-based game rather than one of luck. This means that residents are able to play DFS on DraftKings and Fanduel, as well as any additional sites offering DFS in the state. Some of the sports on offer range from the NFL, NBA, MLB, and MLS which are becoming more and more popular by the day.
Esports in Wyoming
Esports gambling in Wyoming has not been legalized and falls under the same category as sports betting. This won’t come as much of a surprise given Wyoming’s strict online gambling rules in other areas, and the fact that esports in itself is quite a new concept.
Lottery in Wyoming
There is currently no legal online lottery in Wyoming but there is a state lottery that has been in operation since 2014. The only legal requirement of Wyoming’s state lottery is that players must be 18 and or to purchase a ticket.
Horse Racing Betting in Wyoming
Although there are strict gambling regulations in Wyoming, horse racing betting is legal here. Sweetwater Downs and Wyoming Downs offer you on-track betting in the Cowboy State, while there are off-track options in the form of casinos. NYRA Bet operates in Wyoming, so you can get horse racing bets on over the internet.
