Delaware North, a global hospitality and entertainment company, and Gamewise, its online joint venture, have launched the new online and mobile Betly Casino and Sportsbook, which is now live throughout West Virginia.
The Betly Casino and Sportsbook for West Virginia is now available online on PC and Mac browsers at wv.betly.com, and the Betly Casino and Sportsbook app is available for download for Apple iOS devices in the Apple App Store and for Android devices in the Google Play Store.
Delaware North, which owns and operates Wheeling Island Hotel-Casino-Racetrack in Wheeling and Mardi Gras Casino Resort near Charleston, has operated onsite sportsbooks at the casinos and statewide online and mobile sports betting via Betly since 2020. The launch of the new online and mobile casino coincides with a relaunch of the online and mobile sportsbook with Gamewise after it had been powered by International Gaming Technology (IGT).
The new Betly Casino in West Virginia is offering a wide variety of real-money casino games, including a selection of fan-favorite slot games such as Cash Eruption, Cleopatra Gold, Fortune Coin and Elephant King, as well as video table games such as Blackjack, Roulette, and Poker.
“We thank the West Virginia Lottery Commission for its responsive review of Betly and are very excited to have our new online and mobile casino and sportsbook available in the respective online app stores,” said Gamewise General Manager Todd San Jule.
“Betly will afford our loyal Wheeling Island and Mardi Gras casino patrons, everyone across West Virginia and visitors to the state a full array of popular games from the largest suppliers, including IGT. We’re bringing the same easy-to-use and unintimidating type of platform to the Betly online and mobile casino as what we have provided for sports betting. It’s also a familiar and convenient extension of the gaming experiences we provide at our two casinos,” San Jule said.
Betly is offering patrons who create a new account a 200% match of their initial deposit for bonus play added to their deposit, up to a maximum of $200 per patron.
“We are thrilled to make the online and mobile Betly Casino and Sportsbook available to our many loyal patrons in West Virginia,” said David Morris, regional director of marketing for Delaware North’s two casinos in the state. “Now they can experience the excitement of casino gaming from the convenience of their homes and anywhere in the state.”
