The best bets and resources to make you more profitable
Virginia legalized mobile sports betting in January 2021, which was just in time for the 2021 NFL playoffs. Virginians were able to bet on Tom Brady all the way through his 7th, and possibly last Super Bowl.
Here is everything you need to know about mobile sports betting in Virginia.
|Is Sports Betting Legal in Virginia?||Yes! Went legal in January 2021|

Virginia, similar to New Jersey, also has a law that you can’t bet on Virginia based college sports. Lastly, Virginia also does not allow live betting on college sports.
Caesars Sportsbook is a great sportsbook, with a ton of good promotions and odds boosts. We like to call Caesars Sportsbook the OddsBoost god because of the sheer volume of odds boosts they have on a daily basis. They also have some really good promos as well, highlighted below.
BetMGM also has a lot of odds boosts and promos to take advantage of. It also has a really nice user interface when scrolling through the different types of markets/props you want to bet. It’s very intuitive and easy to navigate. Some of the promos are highlighted below:
BetRivers also has a nice signup bonus in which they will deposit match up to $250. Other than that, they have nice daily promos and odds boosts that they call “House Specials.” We love betting those House Specials, as they normally have some profitable bets to make.
PointsBet follows suit with the previous books that offer a generous sign-up bonus. New users can get up to $2000 in 2 free bets. They also have daily odds boosts and generally a sleek interface that is easy to navigate.
Sure does! They were not the first state to legalize mobile sports betting, but they certainly have taken the most advantage of it being legal.
Virginia has a decent offering, with 11 total books available. They are Caesars, BetMGM, BallyBet, Barstool, BetRivers, DraftKings, FanDuel, PointsBet, Golden Nugget, Unibet, and WynnBET.
Because there are a decent amount of sportsbooks available in Virginia, the state offers a competitive market with fair and consistent pricing.
Virginia is easy. You can do everything necessary to get signed up all from your phone/computer. Some states require an in-person sign-up, but Virginia is not one of those states.
They also make signing up and depositing fairly simple as well. This is detailed in the next section, but for the sign-up process, the sportsbook will ask you a couple of personal questions to verify your identity. Then once you are signed up you can set up the payment method by syncing the app to your account.
