Sports Betting in Virginia is a Very Real Possibility

January 1, 2019
Virginia sports betting law

There has already been a lot of activity regarding sports betting in the U.S. State of Virginia. It seems that Virginia may be the one of the next states to adopt a legalized and regulated form of sports betting. A bill introduced by Delegate Mark Sickles is different than new gambling legislation in other states in that it addresses online sports betting and lotto sales only. It has no mention of land based or “brick and mortar” establishments.

According to Forbes, the bill, if passed, the new law would allow for five new sports betting licenses to be granted at a fee of $250,000 a piece with a $200,000 renewal fee. The state would impose a 15% tax on revenue. The financial forecasting company Oxford Economics suggest that as much as $380 million per year could be generated from a handle of about $5.2 billion.
