Fanatics launches new West Virginia online casino site

Fanatics sportsbook has just launched its very first online casino site. The site and mobile casino app is now available exclusively in West Virginia. It can be accessed through the Fanatics sportsbook using your Fanatics sportsbook or old PointsBet account.

If you are a sports fan, you have definitely heard of Fanatics. The groundbreaking eCommerce site has grown into one of the biggest names in the sports industry. Fanatics sells merchandise, collectibles, fan experiences, and more. The company entered the sports betting world earlier this year when it purchased the American arm of the Australia-based sportsbook PointsBet for $225 million. Now, Fanatics have entered the online casino industry. 

On November 16, Fanatics launched a brand new online casino in West Virginia. If this “pilot” casino goes well for Fanatics, this online casino site could go live in other legal Fanatics states.

More than a sportsbook

If you are a sports bettor and someone who plays at online casinos, you have probably noticed that most sports betting sites in the US are also online casino sites. In fact, it is almost impossible to find a sportsbook that does not also have some online casino games available. Well, that is the case now at least. Prior to launching its new West Virginia online casino, Fanatics was one of the only sportsbooks without an official online casino as well.

Now, Fanatics joins the very long list of sportsbooks with online casinos of their own. At the time of writing, the Fanatics online casino is only available in West Virginia. Fanatics is describing this slow rollout as a “pilot” program. 

New West Virginia online casino features

Because the new Fanatics West Virginia online casino is so new, Fanatics has not announced many specifics about the project. What we do know is that the West Virginia casino features online casino games from top software providers, which means the site has big-name games, such as Megaways slots.

Another thing we are still waiting to learn is the Fanatics Casino welcome bonus. At the time of writing, no casino-specific bonus offer has been announced. However, given that the West Virginia site is barely a week old, we are willing to bet that the Fanatics Casino welcome bonus will be announced soon. 

Fanatics Sportsbook currently offers new players a $200 bonus from just a $10 deposit, so we expect Fanatics Casino in West Virginia to offer a similarly generous welcome bonus in the near future. We also expect the West Virginia casino site to increase the number of table games, video poker, and live casino games available.

Fanatics Casino could expand to more states

Fanatics are describing their West Virginia online casino launch as a pilot program. No one from Fanatics has outright said this, but if the West Virginia online casino goes well, Fanatics will expand its online casino to more states. 

Besides West Virginia, Fanatics Sportsbook is currently legal in Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Ohio, Tennessee, and Virginia. These states are the main candidates for the new Fanatics casino to expand to.
