DraftKings and Twin River Worldwide Holdings have announced a temporary retail sportsbook at the Mardi Gras Casino in Black Hawk, Colorado. The Daily Fantasy and Sports Betting Operator, DraftKings, and the land-based casino operator Twin River announced the deal.
It has been announced that the guests will be able to place the bets on the first floor of the casino at the temporary retail sportsbook from July 10. The options for betting will be on all major US Sports including the professional and college leagues.
However, the construction of a permanent retail center within the casino has already begun. It is expected that the facility will open in line with the football season. The facility would have a bar, a wall of TVs, and a VIP lounge area.
Mardi Gras Casino was acquired by Twin River in January 2019. Twin River now has partnered with DraftKings and has given it access to the Colorado market.
Colorado started legal sports wagering since May. The first-month handle has reached $25.5mn, despite no major league due to the COVID19 pandemic. There was no retail offering available as well.
