DraftKings Sportsbook announced last week that it is now available for new customers to sign up in the beautiful state of Wyoming!
Back in August, the state voted to legalize sports betting from September 1st this year by passing the Bill HB0133. Since then, legislators have been busy finalizing the regulations by which operators can operate within the state.
Not Unexpected Move
It is not an unexpected move by the state governors given that customers in Wyoming could still bet on international sites as there were no laws that stated that they could not do so.
That meant that without clear legislation on sports betting in the state, that potentially millions of dollars in taxes were being missed out on due to the lack of clear regulations.
Unsurprisingly, following the precedent set by other states, Wyoming has now become the latest to permit sports betting on its site for regulators that it approves.
And now DraftKings Sportsbook has quickly become one of those sites!
