Delaware North, the company which manages and operates the Mardi Grass and Wheeling Island Casinos, has severed ties and got out of the mutual contract with Miomni, the management services provider; following which the casino has announced that the sports betting will not be available at the venue without saying when it would be restored.
Since the beginning of March, both Mardi Gras Casino and Wheeling Island have not been offering sports betting, but now with severed ties between Delaware and Miomni, it is not sure when it is going to be available again.
It was in December 2018 that both Wheeling Island and Mardi Gras casino got a sports book.
In a release, the West Virginia Lottery stated that the Delaware North is committed to starting sports betting at the facilities and they are also exploring options; however, that will take time, maybe months before a deal is finalized.
In its release, the West Virginia Lottery also extended its support to the company and said that they are ready to work with Delaware North to make sure that sports betting is restored at the casinos at the earliest.
West Virginia Lottery spokesman Randy Burnside said, “We are committed to ensuring the integrity of the sports wagering operations in our jurisdiction, and we are working to ensure that Delaware North honors and redeems all resulted bets and provides its customers with the ability to access their accounts and withdraw their funds.”
