Gaming Innovation Group (GiG) has secured a vendor registration for Virginia for its flagship affiliate site World Sports network (WSN.com), from the Virginia Lottery.
WSN is focused on delivering sports news coverage and match statistics, allowing fans to stay up to date on all the latest developments in their sport of choice. The news site has expanded its operations significantly since the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992 was deemed unconstitutional by the US Supreme Court in May 2018.
With this latest state-approved licence WSN is now licenced in eleven states where sports betting is legal and regulated. This latest authorisation comes at an exciting time for residents in Virginia, with a number of sports betting platforms having been authorised since the state officially opened its doors for business in January 2021.
Jonas Warrer, Managing Director of GiG Media, said: “We are excited to add Virginia to the growing list of states where we can offer legal sports betting content. WSN continues to gain momentum throughout North America and the Virginia licence approval brings us one step closer to our ambition of turning the site into primary go-to sites for all US sports bettors.“
