The Wheeling Island Hotel-Casino-Racetrack officially opened its sports betting operation on Friday.

Bets can be made on any sports event across the country, right in Wheeling.

People started wagering right away with live tellers.

Bets can also be placed via the BetLucky app, as long as you’re within state lines.

The app is the first of its kind in the state.

Delegate Shawn Fluharty was a big proponent of getting sports betting legalized earlier this year, and he said he thinks it can only do good things for the region.

Officials said it was the perfect time to launch, with NFL playoffs around the corner and big college bowl games kicking off.
