West Virginia Losing Money to Surrounding States
With only five commercial casinos in the state of West Virginia, their revenue is declining due to the dozen or more new casinos surrounding them. Incredibly, online gambling is at its highest in this state. And there’s more good news. West Virginia is considering a 6th casino – an online casino. That will take the wind out of the sails of neighboring land-based casinos. The three most notable casinos currently in West Virginia are The Greenbrier, Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races, and Mardi Gras Casino and Resort. Thus, four of the five casinos are located at racetracks. For West Virginia to fully embrace the gambling market, an online casino is the way to go.
