Superbook Sports enters the Virginia market

The operator has announced its expansion into Virginia.

Virginia marks the ninth state Superbook Sports has begun operations in, after experiencing notable growth after expanding into mobile sports betting in 2020 in Colorado. Now, customers in Virginia can download the Superbook Sports app from Apple and Google app stores, and can engage with the various services and games offered by the platform.

Despite its presence in mobile sports betting, Superbook Sports has existed for many decades, first opening its doors in 1986. Based on the Superbook Westgate Las Vegas, the company is one with an understanding of the gambling market both before and after the innovations of the smartphone, with its online ventures existing alongside land-based ones, such as The Lodge Casino in Black Hawk, Colorado, which opened in June 2021.

On the Virginia expansion, Superbook Sports CEO Mark Lipparelli said, "We couldn't be happier with our continued growth. We are thrilled to be live in Virginia and feel confident that we have a great product with a strong history that will become a fast favorite of sports bettors in the region."

Meanwhile, EVP of Race & Sports Book Operations at Superbook Sports Jay Kornegay, said, "Going live in Virginia is a perfect complement to our quickly growing business in Maryland. With our heritage and the passion that fans bring in that area, it is sure to be a great fit.”.

Virginia legalized online sports betting in January 2021, with a multitude of sportsbooks and online betting platforms available to Virginian citizens.

John Murray, Director of Race & Sports at Westgate Las Vegas, recently spoke to the GA Huddle.
