DraftKings has announced the launch of the DraftKings at Casino Queen sportsbook app and retail location in Illinois, after detailing plans of a property rebrand in conjunction with the deal last month.
Located across the Mississippi River in East St Louis, the Gaming and Leisure Properties owned venue now boasts a retail sportsbook location at the newly rebranded facility.
Furthermore, customers can also gain mobile and online sportsbook access, with punters able to download the sportsbook app and visit DraftKings at Casino Queen to finish creating their account onsite, providing them with statewide mobile sports betting access.
Once created, customers can place a variety of bets, including pre-match, live and proposition wagers on several major professional and collegiate athletic events and teams. The app also features a number of promotional offers available only to Illinois customers.
“Illinois is home to some of the most passionate sports fans and most iconic sports teams in the entire country,” said Jason Robins, DraftKings Co-founder, Chairman and CEO.
“DraftKings’ dedication to innovation and providing customers with a premier sports betting experience has made our app the top-rated option and we can’t wait for fans in Illinois to discover why.”
Last month DraftKings announced that Casino Queen would rebrand as ‘DraftKings at Casino Queen’, including its physical location, in connection with the group bringing its sportsbook app and a retail presence to Illinois in association with the facility, subject to receiving necessary approvals.
“We are excited to bring sports betting to Illinois and the St Louis community,” noted Terry Downey, President, DraftKings at Casino Queen. “The marriage of two iconic brands promises to create an unforgettable experience that can only be found at DraftKings at Casino Queen. Fans will come to love the service, passion and innovation now available in our state.”
