Virginia Lottery launches casino, sports betting microsite
Tuesday 5th May 2020
Legislation passed requires the Virginia Lottery to award between four and 12 licenses for mobile sports wagering in Virginia. The Lottery Board will also be required to adopt initial sports betting regulations no later than Sept. 15, 2020, including 30 days of public comment on the proposed rules. After the rules are adopted, the lottery has 90 days to review applications and could award licenses late in the year or early 2021.
"The Lottery's expanded gaming microsite includes links to the casino and sports betting legislation, information about regulatory requirements and deadlines, tools for citizens to participate in the rulemaking process, answers to frequently asked questions, and links to specific forms required to be submitted by casino stakeholders. The site will be updated as the Lottery progresses toward implementation of these new gaming initiatives, including additional information as it develops on licensing, audit and compliance requirements for operators, equipment manufacturers and distributors, suppliers and employees," the lottery said.
