Wyoming FlagCaesars Entertainment announced Tuesday it has launched online sports gambling in the small-market state of Wyoming.

“We’re ready to give sports fans in Wyoming the first-class sports betting experience they deserve,” said Eric Hession, Co-President of Caesars Digital. “Our upgraded mobile sports wagering app together with unforgettable experiences through Caesars Rewards is a special combination we’re excited to bring to this market.”

As part of the announcement, Caesars said it has “best-in-class tools in place to prevent problem gambling,” such as deposit limits, spending limits, daily time limits, and cool-off time limits.

The launch in Wyoming, home to less than 600,000 people, brings the Caesars Sportsbook to 24 states. Eighteen of those states allow the sportsbook over the internet.

Wyoming legalized sports betting in April 2021. BetMGM, DraftKings, and FanDuel are all already in the market, so Caesars will have to play catch-up. There is also a legal retail sportsbook at the Wind River Hotel & Casino in Riverton, WY.

Most sports betting states have a legal gambling age of 21, but it’s 18 in Wyoming. Sportsbook operators must pay a 10% tax on their revenue to the state.

Each year $300,000 is earmarked for problem gambling treatment. The remaining tax revenue is allocated to the Wyoming General Fund.
