The Kentucky Derby is on Saturday, but gambling fans have had a tough time placing bets within West Virginia.
Delaware North, which owns the Mardis Gras Casino in Kanawha County, and the Wheeling Island Hotel Casino and Racetrack here in Wheeling, is locked in a legal dispute over sports betting.
The casinos contracted with a company known as “Miomni” which provided the sports betting app and platform.
But technical problems developed and sports betting at the two casinos went offline.
That means the state will lose out on some badly needed revenue.
