Attention to those in Kentucky's sports betting industry: Legal sports betting is now in full swing, but licensing procedures are ongoing. The Kentucky Horse Racing Commission is maintaining a registry of permit holders engaged in wagering-related activities. Key players like bet365, BetMGM, and DraftKings have already secured "service provider" licenses, positioning themselves in the initial wave of online sports betting sites in the state. Kentucky's racetracks play a pivotal role, and they, along with their partners, must fulfill licensing fees. Moreover, various employees and executives impacting sports wagering outcomes must also obtain permits under state law. Find more comprehensive details in the article here.

It seems like it is very much a slow process at the moment which is to be expected but with some of the bigger names having already secured their service provider licenses, it shows things are moving in the right direction.
