What do I need to do to join a sportsbook in West Virginia?


There are very few restrictions to joining a sportsbook in West Virginia. You must be a WVU fan, no we’re just kidding!

You’ll need to register online before you can deposit money into your account and wager. This is to validate your identity and sports betting account [link to why do they need my SSN]. Luckily, you can do this remotely, there’s no need for in-person registration. 

You must also enable geolocation if you want to bet on sports. WV sportsbooks must be able to verify you are in fact within the state before any wager is placed. Most books will ask to use your location when you first open their betting app. Just make sure you allow it, otherwise you won’t be able to bet. 

If you were to travel to a state where sports betting is legal, you would be able to use your sportsbook app — unless it is state-specific. If that is the case, you may need to download the other state’s version once within their lines. If your sportsbook is universal, then you’ll be able to bet online, no extra downloads and no problems!

Good news too if you’re visiting the Keystone State, you’re able to bet so long as you register online. If you’re within state lines, you’re welcome to bet in Steelers and Eagles country. 

How old do I have to be to use a West Virginian sportsbook?


You must be at least 21 years of age to use a sportsbook, or bet on sports in the state of Pennsylvania. This includes betting either in a casino or online. Verifying your age is a prerequisite of opening an online betting account. If you’re not 21, there’s no getting around it.

What sports can’t I bet on in West Virginia


Thankfully, betting on college sports is legal in West Virginia. Unlike many states, West Virginians can place wagers on the Mountaineers, or any other college sports team. This includes live betting. There are simply no restrictions with college sports betting. 

The NFL Draft is also free from restrictions, so have at that those crazy fun prop bets. The only notable restrictions would be HS sports, which is par for the course. Entertainment and political betting are the only off-limits options for wagering in West Virginia. If it’s sports betting you want, the Mountaineer State is the place to be.
