Official sports data provider Genius Sports has been granted a long term Online Sports Wagering Vendor Permit by the Wyoming Gaming Commission as online gaming in the state became authorized this week.

With the addition of Wyoming, the firm is now authorized to operate in 15 US states, powering official data, streaming, and marketing solutions for leading sportsbooks and lotteries. Wyoming becomes the 23rd state to legalize sports betting and begin betting operations. 

Also this week, the Wyoming Gaming Commission approved operating licenses for Genius sportsbook partners DraftKings and BetMGM.

Mark Locke, CEO of Genius Sports, commented: “We are honored that the Wyoming Gaming Commission has joined the growing number of US gaming authorities that have granted Genius a betting supplier license. 

“Our team looks forward to working with our industry-leading sportsbook partners to deliver compelling, high integrity sports betting experiences throughout the great state of Wyoming. 

“The momentum behind US sports betting continues to increase and we are excited to help the American market to fulfill its massive potential as we pursue licensing in additional states.”
