PointsBet partners Colonial Downs for Virginia sports betting licence
| By Robert Fletcher
PointsBet Holdings has linked up with racetrack Colonial Downs Group to secure a temporary supplier licence to offer online sports wagering in the state of Virginia.
Issued by the Virginia Lottery, the new licence will enable PointsBet, together with Colonial Downs, to access the state’s legal online sports betting market.
Colonial Downs is a subsidiary of California-based Peninsula Pacific Entertainment and owns six Rosie’s Gaming Emporium locations across the state, as well as the Colonial Downs Racetrack in New Kent County.
PointsBet’s expansion into Virginia will also be supported through its partnership with NBC Sports.
