The Wyoming Gaming Commission will hold a meeting 8th June hoping to finalize the rules for sports betting in Wyoming. managing Director Charles Moore put this expectation at the normal June meeting of the Commission on Tuesday.

Fast Sports Betting Process in Wyoming
Governor Mark Gordon signed sports betting legislation April 5th. Legalization came as a bit of a surprise HB 133 was first voted down in the house.
The chamber checked the bill one day later and passed it 32-4. The Senate approved it 24-5.

Those interested in sports betting register
The latest sports betting rules in Wyoming dealt with comments and suggestions from BetMGM and DraftKings. FanDuel’s comments came later and the Gaming Commission will take them into account for the final sentence. Several FanDuel representatives were present at the meeting on Tuesday.
One problem was a rule that required commission approval to deduct void bets from revenue. Also, FanDuel Director of Government Affairs Andrew Winchell Asked to clarify whether the operator’s reserve bank account must be in Wyoming. The Commission intends to adhere to this rule.
Another sticking point for FanDuel is the Commission’s request for an annual review of the internal control procedures. Representatives felt the exam request was different from technical platform reviews in other jurisdictions, with FanDuel Director of Legal & Regulatory Affairs Alex Smith to say “would be a first for us”.
All online market
In the absence of commercial casinos, the legislature has opted for it only online Sports betting in Wyoming. The Commission “will issue no fewer than five licenses to sports betting operators”.
