888 Launches Sports Illustrated Sportsbook in Virginia

Online gaming operator 888 has announced that they've launched a Sports Illustrated sportsbook online in the state of Virginia, the second state to launch an SI-branded book.

The sportsbook will allow gamblers in the state of Virginia to place bets on sports like NASCAR, football, basketball, baseball, hockey, and more using their desktops, phones, or tablets. The product went live in Colorado last year, and 888 is planning to launch in more states down the road.

Regarding the big launch, 888 US President Howard Mittman said, "We are delighted to launch SI Sportsbook in Virginia. Following the success of its debut launch in Colorado last September, this is an important milestone for both ourselves and our partners.

"With its growing base of sports betting fans, we believe that Virginia will play a significant role in the continued development of SI Sportsbook over the coming months.

"Expanding further in the US market is an important part of our ambition to become a global online betting and gaming leader, and we look forward to introducing the brand to players across the state."

Those who want to play at the book must be 21 years of age or older and physically located in the state at the time of wagering.
