A FanDuel-branded sportsbook is set to open at the Greenbrier Resort in White Sulphur Springs, WV.

Currently West Virginia residents and those visiting the state can only bet online via internationally-licensed websites.

The Greenbrier plans to have an onsite wagering platform inside The Casino Club at The Greenbrier, America’s only private casino, as well as a FanDuel-branded online site and mobile application. Plans are to have the services running by the fall. The exact date will be contingent on when the state of West Virginia’s regulations are put in place.

West Virginia lawmakers approved sports wagering following the US Supreme Court's ruling abolishing decades long prohibition.

It was not immediately clear whether others residing in the state would have access to the Greenbrier betting site from their own living rooms.
