With betting weeks away from being fully operational, the state is buzzing with anticipation. The approved operators will now be able to accept wagers on various professional and college sports events, offering a thrilling opportunity for Kentuckians to engage in legal sports betting for the first time. As the countdown to the launch begins, residents can look forward to a safe and regulated environment to indulge in their sports betting passions, while also benefitting the state’s economy through increased revenue and job opportunities.
