July 10 marks the day that the Mardi Gras Casino sportsbook went live. Twin River Worldwide Holdings and DraftKings opened the temporary retail sportsbook in the casino. Also, it features eight self-serving sports betting kiosks, several flat-screen monitors, and a cashier window.
The Mardi Gras sportsbook is the seventh DraftKings retail location in the US after launching sportsbooks in Iowa, New Jersey, New York, and Mississippi. It is a temporary location because the permanent one is still under construction. The latter will have a large bar, VIP Lounge area, and wall of TVs.
After the temporary launch, players in Colorado can place wagers on sports legally. The sportsbook accepts bets on college and professional football, basketball, baseball, golf, car racing, hockey, and other sports.
According to sportsbook pay per head sources, DraftKings is happy to work with Mardi Gras Casino in expanding the latter’s current location and operations. Also, DraftKings is excited to provide an enjoyable experience for sports fans in Colorado.
The casino and DraftKings want to provide an immersive, entertaining, and safe gambling environment. Thus, sports fans would have many real-time gaming opportunities as sports return from their hiatus during the pandemic.
DraftKings will provide the bookie software and other sports betting expertise in the Colorado retail sportsbook. The partnership offers unmatched sports wagering experience to players in Colorado. Aside from retail sports betting, players would gain access to mobile betting.
