WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. — As week one of the college football season is here and the NFL regular season kicking off in a few weeks, fans in West Virginia will be able to bet bets on the games through an app.
On Monday, The Greenbrier announced the official launch of its sportsbook app through FanDuel Group.
“We are incredibly excited that this new app is available for download, and the timing couldn’t be better with football season and A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier right around the corner,” said Dr. Jill Justice, President, The Greenbrier said in a released statement. “We hope sports fans across the state will try out the app and then some visit the amazing FanDuel Sportsbook retail location here at ‘America’s Resort’.”
The release of the app was imminent but there was not an exact date of the launch.
A DraftKings Sportsbook app is expected to be launched soon at Hollywood Casino in Charles Town. State Lottery Director John Myers told reporters last week that both apps were “very close.”
The FanDuel sportsbook app is available for download via iOS and Android. Wagers can be made on the app anywhere inside the state’s borders.
A release said the app offers a range of payment and withdrawal options and 24/7 customer service. FanDuel Sportsbook does have a retail location inside The Casino Club at The Greenbrier.
This is the first sports betting app in the state of West Virginia since the Bet Lucky app through Delaware North, which owns Wheeling Island Casino in Wheeling and Mardi Gras Casino in Cross Lanes, went offline in March.
