BetLucky Sportsbook is West Virginia’s first mobile sports betting option, which services both Wheeling Island and Mardi Gras Casino.
Even though the Delaware North casinos were last to apply for online WV sports betting license in WV, it beat its competitors to market by completing regulator testing and launching the online product Dec. 27, 2018.
The BetLucky Sportsbook app
With the constant updates in sports that change a player’s strategy, bet and odds, having a modern, easy-to-navigate mobile sportsbook is vital. BetLucky tapped Miomni Gaming to power the app.
The BetLucky app comes in two different skins: Mardi Gras Casino and Wheeling Island skin. Both are available for Apple and Android mobile devices.
If you are an iPhone and iPad users, you can download the app through the iTunes Store.
If Android is your platform, you will have to download the app via the BetLucky website. Unfortunately, the Google Play Store does not currently offer the app.
Promos and bonuses for BetLucky betting
As a new player, you receive a welcome bonus with a 2x bet up to $20. You must simply create an account and make a deposit. Once you make your first bet, you could double your winnings up to $20 in bonus money.
Currently, other promotional offers are a bit scarce, but BetLucky is the only online sports betting operator in West Virginia. With FanDuel and DraftKings entering the market soon, more promotions may come available to keep up with the incoming competition.
Loyalty program at Wheeling Island
BetLucky’s online players can also enjoy the benefits of the Delaware North loyalty program: the Lucky North Club.
BetLucky encourages you to sign up for the loyalty program (separate from your BetLucky account) to enjoy on-property rewards and exclusive promotions.
For online sports betting, every $10 you wager earns you one Luck North Point. With every 100 Lucky North points gets you $1 value in rewards.
Unfortunately, the Lucky North Club is not available for those using the Mardi Gras BetLucky app.

BetLucky online banking options
As with most online gambling sites, you can expect some inconveniences due to banks policies on online gambling entities.
BetLucky does offer a variety of ways to deposit money into your account. You can use most debit or credit cards by joining the Play+ program. Essentially, Play+ is a third party where you can load money onto a prepaid card and transfer it into your account.

How to download the BetLucky Sportsbook app
Apple and Android users can easily download the app for mobile sports betting.
BetLucky has two separate app versions. While they are identical, one version is for the Wheeling Island brand, and the other supports the Mardi Gras Resort & Casino.
For iPhone and iPad users, you can download the app from the iTunes Store.
For Android users, the app is not available in the Google Play Store. However, you can go to the BetLucky website and download it from there.
If you are having trouble, there are instructions in the FAQ section, and customer service is a phone call away.
Advantages of the BetLucky Sportsbook
Currently, the main advantage of BetLucky is that it is the only online sports betting app available in West Virginia. Although, this will change in the coming months.
BetLucky offers an easy-to-use app for players of all experience levels. The app is powered by Miomni, which is a leading partner for online gambling entities around the world. Furthermore, BetLucky is also a part of the Delaware North family, which can use its two West Virginia locations to its advantage.
Drawbacks of the BetLucky Sportsbook
Currently, the BetLucky app sits alone in the West Virginia online sports betting world. However, that will change in the coming months with the addition of DraftKings and FanDuel.
With these two titans entering the market, BetLucky will have to step up. Both brands are bringing better brand recognition with the customer, a robust platform and experience in the US online sports betting market.
Some of BetLucky’s drawbacks include:
- The promotional offering is limited.
- The Lucky North Club is only available on Wheeling Island’s version of the app.
- There are limited banking options.
- Not many wagering options.
