Virginia is one of many US markets to authorize sports betting. Bettors in the states can now use one of many sportsbook platforms to place bets on their favorite teams.
If your first question was “Is sports betting legal in Virginia?” then the answer is a simple and resounding “yes.”
Your next question might be: what are the requirements to bet online in the state? They’re quite simple, really. First, you need to be 21 years of age or older. Second, you need to be physically located within the state of Virginia. That’s it! Whether you live in Virginia, are just passing through, or are visiting for a few days, you can bet as long as you’re within the state’s borders. This will be confirmed using geolocation. Your age will be confirmed using the details and identification you provide on registration.
Virginia has a thriving sports betting market replete with all of the big name sportsbooks, including:
- Sports Illustrated Sportsbook
- Golden Nugget
- Bally Bet
- Hard Rock
That’s a massive selection, frankly. And the sports offering at these platforms is equally large. The only major sports that are prohibited are Virginia college teams. You can bet on NCAA teams outside of the state but not on Virginia-based college teams.
