Betting.net / Virginia Adding Some Big Names to Their Sportsbooks

Virginia Adding Some Big Names to Their Sportsbooks

Publish Date: January 21, 2022
Fact checked by: Jesse M Cox

Virginia has had a pretty decent start to life with their legal sports betting industry but there has certainly been room for growth, no one can argue with that fact. And it would appear that Virginia were not oblivious to this fact either as they are now going to add some star sportsbooks to their roster in the coming months.

American football player holding the ball

As it stands, there are 7 sports betting sites in the state of Virginia that sports betting fans can use. With the addition of Betway and the SI sportsbook, that makes 9. In comparison to some of the other major states, there is still a fairly limited number of mobile sportsbooks to choose from but where the strength in Virginia sports betting lies is with its quality and not its quantity of sportsbooks.

April will ring in some changes for Virginia sports betting

Betway and the Sports Illustrated sportsbook are coming to Virginia sports betting and the date, while not specifically set, is expected to be some time in April 2022. Both of these sportsbooks, especially Betway, are big players in the sports betting world in the US which can only mean more sports betting traffic in the state of Virginia. While both of these sportsbooks have international prestige attached to their name, they have also built up very impressive player bases in the US as well.

The only real flaw of arriving so late to the scene in Virginia for these two football bookmakers is the fact that they have missed the boat for almost all of the NFL season and now, most importantly, they will miss the playoffs and the Super Bowl. The swell of revenue missed out on with these events, in particular the Super Bowl, is not something to be scoffed at. Although it’s certainly a missed opportunity, the expansion of these two sportsbooks into Virginia is a clear sign of their intent. The sportsbook industry in the US is incredibly competitive, so to get their foot in the door in a state with only 7 other sportsbooks is a great opportunity to continue their rise up the ranks.

Does this mean Virginia residents can bet on college football?

The big kicker for many sports betting fans in the state of Virginia is that they are still not allowed to bet on college football. This has been a  pretty gaping omission for many sports betting fans, as they can’t bet on Cavaliers, Hokies, or Spiders.

While they still can’t bet on college football, there is some movement on this front as last week, Del. Schuyler T. VanValkenburg introduced a bill that would allow sports betting fans to bet on their favorite college teams. The reason the bill might garner some more support on this occasion is that it excludes proposition bets from being made on college football. Whether this will be enough to sway the other delegates remains to be seen but they do appear to be more willing to have the conversation.

Perhaps the introduction of two more stellar sportsbooks in the state and the opportunity for significantly more revenue in the betting market might be the small stones that start the avalanche of support that the bill needs. For now though, the Virginia sports betting fans will have to content themselves with the new online bookies and the other 7 original sportsbooks in their state for all things betting.
