Multi-State Poker Included in Wyoming Online Casino Bill

HB 120 calls for the state to issue at least five interactive gaming licenses. The bill also includes language allowing the state to join a multi-state gaming compact like MSIGA.

Published Feb 12, 2024 In a surprise development, lawmakers in Wyoming have introduced a bill to legalize online casino gaming and poker, and to allow the state to join a gaming compact for multi-state poker, too. Rep. Bob Davis (R-Baggs) introduced HB 120 on Wednesday. It calls for the state to issue at least five licenses for online casino gaming, with operators paying a 10% tax rate.

But the bill also includes verbiage that would allow it to join a multi-state gaming compact to support online poker, such as the Multi-State Internet Gaming Agreement (MSIGA) — which currently includes Delaware, Michigan, Nevada, New Jersey, and West Virginia.

“The state may enter into reciprocal agreements with permissible jurisdictions for the conduct of interactive gaming, provided the agreements are not inconsistent with federal law and the law of the jurisdiction in which the person placing a wager is located,” the bill states.

The bill defines “permissible jurisdiction” as a “jurisdiction other than Wyoming where wagers on interactive gaming may be accepted pursuant to an interactive gaming reciprocal agreement.”
