Wyoming Online Gambling Sites πŸŽ–οΈ 2022

Wyoming legalized online-only sports betting in April 2021 when Gov. Mark Gordon signed HB133 into legislation. The law only confirmed the status of online sports betting and daily fantasy sports in the Equality State. However, most other forms of online gambling still remain illegal in the state of Wyoming.

⭐ WY Online Gambling

Wyoming Online Gambling

The first sportsbook apps to launch legal online gambling in Wyoming.

Wyoming legalized online gambling in the form of an online sports betting law in April 2021 with Gov Mark Gordon signing the bill. The WY online gambling law also classified daily fantasy sports contests as a non-gambling activity, strenghtening their position in the state. The legislation, formerly known as HB133, failed to mention online casinos or online poker games, so these forms of online gambling still remain illegal in Wyoming. Wyoming Gaming Commission regulates the industry and approves new applicants for licenses.

⭐ Sportsbooks

Wyoming will grant operators minimum of 5 sports betting licenses, with no maximum cap. The five operators must have sportsbooks in at least three other states. DraftKings, FanDuel, Barstool and BetMGM have already applied for a Wyoming sports betting license by submitting a letter of intent. DraftKings Wyoming and BetMGM Sportsbook Wyoming launched traditional sports betting on September 1 with bonuses for new Wyoming sports bettors.

Sports Betting in Wyoming

The Wyoming Gaming Commission, formerly known as the Wyoming Pari-Mutuel Commission, announced that their targeted launch date for online sports betting was September 1st 2021, and they succeeded. DraftKings and BetMGM were the first online sportsbooks approved for the state in a special meeting, and launched their apps and sites on Sept. 1. The next Commission meeting is held on November 5, but more special meetings to approve at least three more online betting operators might be scheduled before then. Unlike many states, Wyoming can approve an unlimited number of legal sites, so the wagering public might have plenty to choose from, even though WY is not the most populous state.

Retail Sports Betting

Land based sports betting is not available in WY, as the state decided to legalize only online and mobile sports betting. Wyoming joins Tennessee as the second state in the United States without retail betting. Given the small population and vast distances of the state, this is quite understandable. However, one or both of the Native American tribes may open a retail sportsbook at the casinos in Wyoming. The Northern Arapaho are already planning to offer sports betting in the near future.

DraftKings has arrived now that the Equality State made sports betting legal.

⭐ Online Casinos

Online casinos are not legal in Wyoming. The online gambling bill HB133 only addressed legalizing sports betting and DFS, and had no mention of online casinos. Given the geographical limitations of state, we hope that WY online casinos might arrive in the near future though, as the distances between the tribal casinos and major Wyoming cities are hundreds of miles. For now, we recommend social casinos over offshore sites as gambling options; such a site might not follow responsible gambling rules.

Wyoming Casinos

There are four tribal casinos in the state, operated by two Native American tribes in WY: the Northern Arapaho tribe and the Eastern Shoshone tribe. All of the Wyoming casinos offer slots machines, but only Wind River Hotel & Casino has class III gaming, aka poker room with poker tournaments, video poker and table games. Therefore, the casino gambling in Wyoming is quite limited.

Casino Address Slots Poker & Table Games
789 Smoke Shop & Casino 10369 Highway 789, Riverton, WY 82501 Yes No
Little Wind Casino 800 Blue Sky Highway, Ethete, WY 82520 Yes No
Shoshone Rose Casino & Hotel 5690 US Highway 287, Lander, WY Yes No
Wind River Hotel & Casino 180 Red Wolf Place, Riverton, WY 82501 Yes Yes

Online Poker

Online poker games are not yet allowed to operate in Wyoming. The only place where you can take part in legal poker rooms is at the Wind River Casino in Riverton, located in the Wind River Reservation in Western Wyoming.

⭐ Daily Fantasy Sports

HB133 also clarified the status of DFS contests in Wyoming. Fantasy sports are not seen as online gambling by the state law, which means that Wyomingites over the age of 18 can take part in these contests and still win real money. As DFS is not seen as a gambling activity, there is no separate license required, which means that in addition to giant fantasy sports operators DraftKings and FanDuel, smaller operators like Monkey Knife Fight can do business in the state.

⭐ Horse Racing

You can bet on horses in Wyoming via mobile betting platforms, off track betting facilities or at the horse racing tracks. Available online sites include all the biggest horse race operators like TVG, TwinSpires, and BetAmerica. There are also more than 20 off-track betting venues around the state. Finally, there are three racetracks in the state also accept pari-mutuel wagering on horses, and provide historical horse racing machines, simulcast wagering, and live horse racing. The three tracks:

  • Energy Downs Cam-Plex: 1635 Reata Drive, Gillette, WY 82718 (May to June)
  • Sweetwater Downs Events Complex: 3320 Yellowstone Road, Rock Springs, WY 82901 (August to September)
  • Wyoming Downs Racetrack: 10180 Highway 89 North, Evanston, WY 82930 (June to August)

⭐ Wyoming State Lottery

Wyoming Lottery is not run by the state, which is a peculiarity in the United States. It’s a private, for-profit organization that receives no tax dollars. In addition, the state lottery can only operate in retail settings and can’t sell scratchers, as state officials wished to limit instant win games. Therefore, the only lottery options in the Wyoming gambling industry are draw games, like Mega Millions, sold at kiosks around the state.

⭐ Legal Gambling Age

Wyoming is one of the few states where you can legally gamble online or at land-based casinos at 18 years old. Therefore, anyone within the state limits, over the age of 18, and not on a self-exclusion list can play retail casino games or place bets online. This is good news for young bettors, as most states have set the age limit at 21.
