Due to locals opposing gambling for a multitude of reasons, Virginia is one of the few states yet to have authorized the building of either tribal or any state-sanctioned gaming establishments.
In what might become an odd twist, Virginia may actually pass legal online sports betting (and also casino betting) before it actually has any brick-and mortar-casinos in the state. With nearby states such as West Virginia and Maryland approving laws recently to allow internet gambling, it may only be a short time before Virginia follows suit.
Virginia has one solitary race track where parimutuel gambling can take place, and residents of the state are also allowed to bet on horse racing over the internet.
The state operates a lottery that has access to PowerBall and MegaMillions, and residents in Virginia are allowed to purchase tickets to play lottery games online and also take part in online scratch card games.
