Two casinos in West Virginia appear to be on the verge of offering sports betting soon.

John Myers, the state’s lottery director, recently told the Lottery Commission that Mardi Gras Casino and Resort in Cross Lanes and Wheeling Island Hotel-Casino-Racetrack in Wheeling have passed the required tests needed to open their sports books.

“We’ve completed testing Delaware North, which includes both Mardi Gras and Wheeling Island casinos,” Myers said, according to the West Virginia News. “Both of those locations will have the mobile app when they begin receiving wagers.”

The Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack & Resort in New Cumberland started taking sports bets on November 20.

All five casinos in the state have paid the annual $100,000 license fee to offer sports wagering, the News reported.
