Sportsbetting in Wyoming got one step closer to reality this week as a bill that would legalize the activity passed through the state Senate.
The bill is formally known as House Bill 0133 and passed through the Committee with a margin of 24-5-1. The bill was introduced by the House of Representatives and didn't originally have any licensing requirements for operators. The bill will now have to go back to the House for voting on that amendment and will then go back to the Senate for another vote. If it passes there, it will head to the desk of Governor Mark Gordon, who can sign the bill into law.
Wyoming has a population of 580,000 many of whom are spread throughout the large rural portions of the state. There's currently no info on who just may be entering that market, but we'll be keeping an eye out and informing readers as we learn more.
