West Virginia may not be huge on casinos, but the state still boasts a handful of quality gaming spots. Those looking for something upscale will definitely want to check out the underground casino at the Greenbrier, itself a four-star luxury resort near White Sulphur Springs; some 26 former and sitting U.S. presidents have visited the Greenbrier, and the list of famous guests certainly wow the everyday tourists and low-stakes gamblers who visit.
The other four outlets, all either built or massively renovated in the 10s, are typically some combination of horse/dog track, hotel resort and casino. The Mountaineer represents one of American casino land’s bigger success stories, with the income produced able to jump purse sizes for winning entrants and thus augment the racetrack’s reputation tremendously.
And though the Hollywood, Mardi Gras and Wheeling Island casinos operate in tandem with on- and off-track horse and/or greyhound racing, these are no mere “racinos.” The Hollywood and Mountaineer house some 2,500 and 1,100 slot machines, respectively, making these almost the biggest in a five-state region. In addition, note that all casinos in West Virginia host table games; most also have poker rooms as well.
Since West Virginia has always been surprisingly progressive on casino gaming law, most West Virginians play safely, securely and freely at online casinos. As one of the first states to legalize sports betting, online casino games are available on those sportsbook websites licensed by the state.
