Iowa’s Grand Falls Casino and Golf Resort will open the doors to a Betfred USA Sports full sportsbook later this week, offering punters access to both mobile and internet betting.

The sportsbook will open on 30 January, 2020, offering visitors access to 80 screens, 10 recliners, 22 lounging chairs, 2 reservable VIP areas and 5 high top tables as well as a full bar and food service.  

Sharon Haselhoff, general manager of Grand Falls, commented: “We are thrilled and excited to work together with Betfred USA Sports who brings decades of retail and online expertise to our region. Grand Falls always strives on being a one-of-a-kind destination and we believe the sportsbook experience will be like no other in the Midwest.”

Betfred USA set its sights on the Hawkeye state in July 2019 when the company first entered into agreement with Elite Casino Resorts and a sports betting agreement for the Larchwood-based property.

The gaming and resort destination operator also counts the Riverside Casino and Golf Resort in Riverside and Rhythm City Casino Resort in Davenport as part of Iowa-based stable.

“We’re very proud of our partnership with Elite Casino Resorts to bring a Las Vegas quality sportsbook to Grand Falls Casino and sports bettors in Sioux Falls, Northwest Iowa and SW Minnesota,” stated Bryan Bennett, COO of Betfred USA Sports.

“Grand Falls already provides a fantastic gaming and resort experience to its patrons and we look forward to adding to that with the Betfred Sportsbook.”

This follows news that Betfred has secured a new agreement with Colorado-based Saratoga Casino Black Hawk to roll out sports betting services throughout the Centennial State.

The partnership, which is awaiting regulatory approval, will see Betfred offer Colorado bettors access to mobile and internet betting as well as a full sportsbook at the Black Hawk property.

Colorado became the 19th state to legalise sports betting in November 2019, after facing a narrow margin of 51 per cent to 49 per cent voting in favour of the legislation according to unofficial returns.
