DraftKings, Genius Sports and BetMGM were among the recipients of the sports betting licenses in Wyoming’s newly launched sportsbetting market

With Wyoming, DraftKings is now offering its online sportsbook product in 13 states. In January, Virginia and Michigan also saw the operator launch locally.

DraftKings Co-Founder and President Matt Kalish said: “Legalized sports betting has seen widespread growth in just three years and the DraftKings Sportsbook has been at the center of the action.

“We are thrilled that Wyoming sports bettors have the opportunity to experience the highly accessible and immersive fan experience along with best in class consumer protections that our product offers millions of skin-in-the-game sports fans.”

Genius Sports also stated that the Wyoming Gaming Commission had awarded it a licence to operate an online sports betting business. Adding Wyoming to Genius’s list of states takes them up to their 15th state in total.

Genius CEO Mark Locke said: “We are honored that the Wyoming Gaming Commission has joined the growing number of US gaming authorities that have granted Genius a betting supplier license. Our team looks forward to working with our industry-leading sportsbook partners to deliver compelling, high integrity sports betting experiences throughout the great state of Wyoming.

“The momentum behind US sports betting continues to increase and we are excited to help the American market to fulfill its massive potential as we pursue licensing in additional states.”
