Fluharty angered at lack of West Virginia online sports betting, and he’s not alone Sean Chaffin, PlayWV · August 14, 2019 at 7:44 am As West Virginia awaits news about online sports betting, the process hasn’t only angered bettors. Del. Shawn Fluharty (D) spoke on Tuesday about his own frustration with the process. “At this point, I would say mobile sports betting has continued a disturbing trend in West Virginia where the legislature passes a law and those responsible for implementing the law drag their asses. I’ve seen little to no interest from state regulators in getting mobile sports betting up and running. They have shown zero urgency.” A lack of mobile sports betting, he says, has proven costly for state coffers. Other states such as New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Nevada have seen significant revenue flow into the state.
