Wyoming's Rocky Mountains and High Plains make it a state renowned for adventure—and in recent years, the state has gradually relaxed its gambling laws to enable more fun away from nature, too.

Online Casino Gambling in Wyoming

Social Casino Offers Only Available

The Wyoming authorities resisted the development of tribal casinos for decades, including a prolonged decade-long case with the Arapaho tribe. Thankfully for gamblers, the state was eventually overruled and Wyoming now has a small number of casinos situated on the Wind River Indian Reservation. This means the capital of the state, Cheyenne, doesn't have any legal gambling venues. The Wind River Hotel and Casino is the biggest resort in Wyoming, with the other options being 789 Casino, Little Wind Casino, and Shoshone Rose Casino. The relatively small number of all the casinos, not to mention their concentrated locations, makes casino gambling in the state unappealing if you're hundreds of miles away or more.

Those looking to avoid the trip and still play are out of luck as Wyoming authorities haven't legalized any form of online gambling.

Social casinos are completely legal, though, and available on the internet or as an app and feature all the popular casino games, including slots, blackjack, video poker and roulette. It is free to play. While you cannot win money playing games at social casinos, the sites like Chumba casino typically offer sweepstakes (games of chance) with prizes that can include real money jackpots.

Wyoming Daily Fantasy

Offers Available

Online gamers are free to play daily fantasy in Wyoming. Big brands such as DraftKings and FanDuel have a strong presence with gamblers in the state. Daily fantasy sports (DFS) seem be viewed positively by a large number of states, possibly because it's a modern concept that has a clean reputation and a strong case can be made for it being a skills-based game.

Wyoming Poker Online

Not Legal

Some of the tribal casinos in Wyoming offer poker games, although the scene is very modest compared with hardcore gambling states. Home games are very popular, though theoretically, the law stipulates that players must be able to prove a "bona fide" relationship with fellow players. Furthermore, no fee or rake is legally allowed to be associated with the games. That's still the best option for poker players as there are no licensed online sites in the state.

Sports Betting in Wyoming

Not Legal

Sports betting in Wyoming has traditionally focused on horse racing, and now it includes both racetrack betting on live races at venues such as Wyoming Downs as well as machines that enable betting on "masked" historical horse races. Unfortunately, the authorities seem to believe that betting on simulated past races is a great idea, while betting on sports in the present, such as games from the NBA, NFL, golf, soccer, and MMA, is not. Wyoming lawmakers are now free, thanks to a Supreme Court ruling, to legalize and regulate sports betting in the state. But for now, sports bettors don't have any other legal means to do so in person or online.
