Sports data technology business Genius Sports has secured a permanent sports wagering licence in West Virginia.
Issued by the West Virginia Lottery Commission, the permit will enable Genius to provide its solutions to licensed sportsbooks and lotteries in the state.
Confirmation of the new licence means that Genius is now approved to operate in 13 states across the US.
“Genius Sports is fully committed to supporting the development of, and operating in, regulated territories in partnership with fully licensed sportsbooks,” Genius chief executive Mark Locke said.
“West Virginia remains at the forefront of liberalisation in the US and one of the most proactive proponents of legalised sports wagering.
“I’m honored that we have been awarded this licence to provide our industry leading services in the Mountain state, and that our sportsbook partners will continue to utilise our solutions to help them thrive in this rapidly growing market.”
