The State of Wyoming has a relatively minor gambling industry; however, the state’s gambling laws aren’t all that restrictive on its residents. Rather than restrictive laws, Wyoming’s lack of gaming options is due its comparatively small population across its quite large state area. Land-based gambling options are limited to two racetracks, three tribal casinos, some limited charitable gaming options, a state lottery and social games played with friends.
Given its decentralized population, online gambling in Wyoming is an attractive option for state’s residents and the state legislated to allow online sports betting NJ style when Governor Mark Gordon signed HB 133 in April 2021. The first bets were taken in September 2021, but online poker and online casino play is not permitted. However, the state of Wyoming does allow for online horse racing betting and Daily Fantasy Sports.
