The best promo codes and deposit bonuses available at WV sportsbooks.
West Virginia is known colloquially as the Mountaineer State – but there was no summit to climb when it came to passing sports betting legislation. Due in large part to some impressive foresight on the part of lawmakers, West Virginia actually approved a sports betting bill two months before the Supreme Court repealed the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992. Here's a look at the top sports betting bonuses available to West Virginia-based players.
If your first qualifying bet loses and it is in an amount greater than $50, you will receive five (5) bonus bets back in equal denominations of 20% of the total amount of the qualifying bet up to $1,000.
New users to FanDuel are eligible for a No Sweat First Bet of up to $1,000 in bonus bets. All you have to do is sign up and make a first deposit of at least $10. If your first bet loses, FanDuel will give you bonus bets equal to the amount of the first bet. The bonus bets will expire 14 days after being issued.
If your first qualifying wager loses, Caesars will credit you a bet credit equal to the value of your first wager up to $1,250, plus get 1,000 Tier Credits and 1,000 Reward Credits® win or lose.
New customers with DraftKings can place an initial deposit and wager of $5 or more on any pre-game moneyline to receive $150 in bonus bets should they win. The reward will be delivered as six (6) $25 bonus bets that are non-withdrawable, non-transferable, non-refundable, and will expire after seven days.
The offer is available until May 28, 2023.

BetRivers goes with a deposit match up to $250, which is nice as it gives you free money to play with instead of risk-free bets that only award you if your first bet is graded a loser. Unfortunately, $250 is low compared to the industry standard. Use promo code SPORTS to claim.

Golden Nugget offers a matched deposit bonus of up to $250 for new customers with odds of -200 or better. Once the bet settles, the user will receive their account's 100% deposit match. One of the ancillary benefits of Golden Nugget's offer is they only require a 1x rollover on bonuses, so users can withdraw their winnings much sooner than most competitors offer.

There are no frills with the welcome bonus at Betly. They will refund you up to $100 in free bet credits if your first bet is a loss. Something important to know here is that the risk-free bet is based on your first wager, not your first deposit amount, and your first deposit has to be through a Play+ account. So, if you deposit $100 but place a first bet of just $25, your free bet credit will be just $25 if that bet loses.

It will come as no surprise to see a rather extensive list of major professional and amateur sports available to West Virginia bettors; here are the marquee sports on which West Virginians can wager:
No sport in West Virginia generates a higher handle year after year than professional football – and those numbers are only expected to climb as more people turn to wagering. Look for the state's sports betting operators to sharpen their game as those numbers rise, with more available markets.
Great news for West Virginia college football wagering enthusiasts: There are no restrictions on which teams and games WV residents can include on their bet tickets. That means total and complete access to countless markets every week of the NCAA football season, including season-ending bowl games.
Maybe you're feeling the absence of football markets come mid-February. Or maybe you're looking to get into a different sport even before the end of the NFL season. Might we suggest some NBA action? WV residents will find a multitude of NBA markets from both a pre-game and in-game perspective.
As with NCAA football, West Virginians have no limit on what they can bet on from a college basketball perspective. And while the state boasts just two Division I mean's basketball programs (West Virginia Mountaineers, Marshall Thundering Herd), there are plenty of other teams to bet on each year.
Beer. Hot dogs. Pretzels. And now, betting tickets. MLB is the offical pro sport of summer in most parts of North America, and West Virginians are spending more on baseball betting each year than the one before. That should continue to climb – and with it, the number of markets offered by sportsbooks.
Every sportsbook operating in West Virginia prioritizes other pro sports ahead of hockey – but there's still plenty of money to be won on the ice. Between team futures, moneylines and totals for every game and in-game options including who will score, getting into NHL betting markets is a wise move.
Take a swing at a major payday with outright golf markets found at every major West Virginia sports betting operator. And betting on who will win the tournament is only one of literally hundreds of potential markets you'll have access to – especially when those majors roll around.
Soccer doesn't have the same hold in North America as it does in other areas of the world – but not for a lack of betting markets. Major West Virginia sportsbooks carry a wide variety of wagering options across the major European leagues, Major League Soccer and the upcoming World Cup.
Like most states, West Virginia’s state gaming authority has put safeguards in place to ensure that bettors have a way out of any potential trouble spots.
The West Virginia Lottery Commission manages self-exclusion by inviting players to submit a request in writing if they wish to be added to the list. Players can also set deposit and bet limits of their choosing through the mobile apps.
