- Lawmakers have filed an online sports betting bill in Wyoming.
- There have been previous attempts for Wyoming to allow online sports betting.
CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Sports bettors that are in Wyoming might be in luck as lawmakers in the state have filed yet another bill that would allow online sports betting.
The bill, WY HB 133, would allow for different online sports betting vendors to operate in the state under a permit. The fee for retaining a permit would be set at $10,000 and would last five years with a $5,000 renewal fee as well.
Wyoming has, in fact, made previous attempts to allow online sports betting back in February of 2020. However, the bill died after the house floor voted not to pass it with a result of 32 “no’s” and 27 “yes’s”.
Although the bill did not pass, there are still plenty of sports betting options in Wyoming.
One option that bettors can look out for is land-based sports betting that is run by the Northern Arapaho Tribe in which they do not need the state’s approval.
However, the main option for sports bettors in Wyoming to bet on sports are legal online sportsbooks that are operated overseas. Online sportsbooks such as Bovada, are a great option for bettors as they offer plenty of odds on sports in the state such as Wyoming Cowboys football and other sports around the country.
