All the casinos in Wyoming are located on the Wind River Indian Reservation near the center of the state and are run by Native American Tribes.
The gaming machines at Wyoming casinos don’t pay out actual cash. Instead, they print a receipt out for the player, who must take this to a floor attendant to be cashed or taken to the cashier’s cage. Online gambling? 2020 maybe!
Legal online sports betting is not likely to be available in Wyoming any time soon (probably, in 2020). The state clearly defines participating in sports betting restricted. Although this has never been enforced to charge any online gambler, you could be hit with a misdemeanor for placing wagers at off-shore sportsbooks. There hasn’t been much movement on the issue either leading observers to believe Wyoming sports betting may never be legal.
Casino gambling is legal in the state of Wyoming but only at its two Tribal Casinos. The Wind River Hotel and Casino and the Shoshone Rose Casino and Hotel both offer every casino experience there is and finding table games, poker rooms, and slots is no problem at these fine establishments.
While you can find live poker in the state, online poker is still illegal and doesn’t look to be changing anytime soon. Off-shore sites are active in the state and the only option for online poker players.
It’s definitely not the biggest of lottos in the country, but the WyoLotto is a fine product. All the brand name games such as Mega Millions, Powerball, and Lucky for Life are here and they include scratch-offs, drawings, and pool play. The WyoLotto also offers a few drawings for Wyoming only such as Cowboy Draw.
Fantasy sports betting and DFS sites are thriving in Wyoming and all without state regulation. The statehouse has simply not got around to taking a stance on the issue. While no legislation is forthcoming, no one believes the state has any interest in stopping the industry so all DFS should continue uninterrupted.
In a state where everything is nicknamed “cowboy,” you’d think horse racing is quite popular in the state and it is. Although many of the tracks have had their ups and downs, this has been the national trend for decades now. There are five tracks operating in the state on select days. There are dozens of Off Track Betting sites accepting wagers as well. And, online horse racing wagers are perfectly legal in Wyoming via sites such as BetAmerica and TwinSpires.
