Golden Nugget Online Gaming gains Virginia sports betting license


Golden Nugget Online Gaming (GNOG) today announced it has been granted an online sports betting license in the state of Virginia. 

The company has also been given a temporary permit to begin online sports wagering in the state.

GNOG president Thomas Winter said: “We thank the Virginia Lottery for the opportunity to expand our online business into the Commonwealth of Virginia.

“Together with our equity partner, Virginia Sports Technology Group, we are excited to announce that GNOG will not only be providing Virginians with a great mobile sportsbook, we will be proudly sharing our revenues with Virginia’s historically black colleges & universities.

“We will be working hand in hand with the regulators over the next couple of months to complete all of the required and standard platform testing so that we will be in a position to start taking bets this summer.”

Virginia becomes the tenth state within which GNOG has been granted access, following the deal it signed in New York last month subject to approval.

GNOG went  public on the Nasdaq at the end of 2020 through a reverse merger with Landcadia II Holdings. This deal saw it spin off from parent company Landry’s, which operates the land-based Golden Nugget business.
