Wyoming Lawmakers Resurrect the Plan to Establish a State Gambling Commission

Wyoming lawmakers have resurrected the plan for establishing a state gambling commission.

The Legislature’s Joint Travel, Recreation and Cultural Resources Committee had nixed the idea of a regulatory body to oversee everything from poker games to sports betting.

The state Pari-Mutuel Commission is currently overseeing gambling in Wyoming and regulates only horse racing. Horse racing accounts for roughly $12 million in state and local taxes annually.

Republican Sen. Ogden Driskill made a Management Council motion to form a task force to examine expanding the commission’s oversight.

A similar proposal failed in the Legislature this year. Driskill says Wyoming is not currently regulating gambling “and doing nothing is going to lead to bad results.”

PlaySugarHouse.com is once again bringing a little positivity during these difficult times to a West Chester, PA man who hit the Divine Fortune jackpot on Sunday night. Anthony, who asked that we not share his last name, hit the jackpot for a total winning of $159,052.43. This is the third time the Divine Fortune jackpot was hit at PlaySugarHouse.com since the closure of all land-based casinos in the states of New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The first time was in New Jersey on March 15th and the second time was in Pennsylvania on March 20th, both for over $278,000.

Anthony was at home with his family when he won. “I still feel like I’m in a dream,” the 55-year-old commercial painter said. “I was definitely not expecting it, and I had to ask myself if I really hit the jackpot.”

While he doesn’t have any set plans for his winnings, Anthony expressed that he would like to put aside some money for retirement.

“It’s exciting to be able to provide a chance for our players to win life changing jackpots on an outlet that doesn’t require them to leave home,” said Mattias Stetz, C.O.O. of Rush Street Interactive, which operates PlaySugarHouse.com and BetRivers.com.  “This win made a huge positive impact during this very trying period of time.”

With all land-based casinos in New Jersey and Pennsylvania closed, PlaySugarHouse.com has seen an increase in online casino play over the past couple of weeks.

This is the fourteenth Divine Fortune jackpot at PlaySugarHouse.com in Pennsylvania since its launch last summer.
