West Virginia takes another punt at legalising online gambling

News on 16 Mar 2017

West Virginia lawmakers filed a second interactive gambling bill, HB 3067, this week seeking to legalise Internet gaming, managed and licensed through existing authorized gaming facilities in West Virginia.

Our readers will recall the introduction to the West Virginia House of HB2751 “Legalising Sport Pool Betting” earlier this month (see previous reports) sponsored and filed by five of the delegates who have authored HB 3067.

The bill, which proposes a 14 percent tax on GGR and a license fee of $50,000, currently sits before the House Judiciary.
