The West Virginia Lottery Commission, in an emergency meeting, has passed the rules governing the debut of sports betting at the state’s five casinos.
The Lottery Commission aimed to get the rules out as soon as possible, providing casinos with the framework they need.
The commission voted unanimously in favor of approving the rules, with just a couple of minor changes. They’ll likely go to be filed with the Secretary of State’s office as soon as this afternoon.
Many of the rules also deal with the integrity monitoring system, essentially the safeguards to make sure all betting is on the up and up.
