Golden Nugget Mobile Sportsbook Licensed in Virginia

Golden Nugget Online is one of three more sportsbooks authorized for Virginia, announcing its intention to launch its online sports betting operation by summer.

Golden Nugget Online Gaming (GNOG) announced that it’s won one of the online sports gaming licenses to be awarded in Virginia. GNOG has been granted a temporary permit to commence online sports wagering in the state. The company now has market access to 10 states, legislation and regulatory approvals permitting.

GNOG President Thomas Winter stated, “We thank the Virginia Lottery for the opportunity to expand our online business into the commonwealth of Virginia. Together with our partner, Virginia Sports Technology Group, we will not only provide Virginians with a mobile sportsbook, but we will also be proudly sharing our revenues with Virginia’s historically black colleges and universities.

“We will be working hand in hand with the regulators over the next couple of months to complete all of the required and standard platform testing so that we will be in a position to start taking bets this summer.”

GNOG is one of three operators receiving temporary permits to operate sports betting in Virginia, along with Barstool Sportsbook and Bally’s Corp. Golden Nugget officials told Legal Sports Report that it expects to launch sports betting operations by summer.
