Wyoming sports betting has finally arrived. The state passed HB 133 earlier this year, which required the Wyoming Gaming Commission to launch sports betting by September 1, 2021. That deadline has been met, and sports betting is now available for Wyoming bettors just in time for the 2021-22 NFL season, which will likely account for a large portion of the state’s handle.
Wyoming bettors could place bets as soon as this afternoon once DraftKings and BetMGM officially go live.
Which Sportsbooks Are Live?
As of today, DraftKings Wyoming and BetMGM Wyoming are the only online sportsbooks to officially receive a license to operate in the state. The companies have a head start on their competition and can launch as soon as this afternoon.
However, various other sportsbook operators are expected to launch in Wyoming. Timelines for these operators are unclear, but it’s safe to assume they’ll make a speedy approach to the market. In addition to DraftKings and BetMGM, the following operators have expressed interest in launching in Wyoming:
Claim A Bonus And Start Betting at DraftKings Wyoming
DraftKings offers a welcome bonus of up to $1000 for Arizona sports bettors. The sportsbook will match 20% of your first deposit up to $1000, giving you extra betting funds. To get the full bonus, you’ll need to deposit $5000. But don’t worry, if you’re only looking to spend a bit, you can still get 20% of whatever your first deposit is. For example, a $100 first deposit will net you $20 in free bets.
How to Sign Up for Wyoming Sports Betting
Signing up for a sports betting account is fairly easy. It’s similar to creating an online shopping account, just with a few extra required bits of information. Download your preferred sportsbook app for iOS or Android if you prefer a mobile experience. Or you can visit your preferred sportsbook’s website to sign up–either will work. You’ll need the following:
- Password (you’ll create one)
- Phone number
- Residential address
- Social Security Number (to confirm your identity)
- Drivers license or government-issued ID
Follow the steps on the site or in the app. It should all be familiar to you if you’ve ever created an online account. If you run into issues, contact your sportsbook’s customer support.
