Catawba Two Kings Casino is seeking a significant NFL shaped uplift during the coming months after the gaming property officially debuted a retail sports betting space.

This means that the temporary Catawba Nation venue now features a branded sportsbook, agent/teller services with betting voucher redemption, and 30 betting kiosks in the designated area and throughout the facility. 

Subsequently, this means that patrons can now place wagers on an array of sports, including auto racing, baseball, basketball, boxing, football, golf, hockey, mixed martial arts and soccer.

The Two Kings sportsbook and kiosks are powered by International Gaming Technology under an agreement with the Catawba Nation Gaming Authority, with Delaware North also advising on the operations.

The Catawba Nation will operate sports betting at the casino under the terms of its compact with the state of North Carolina.

“We’re very excited to bring a sportsbook and betting kiosks to the Catawba Two Kings Casino so our loyal patrons can enjoy sports wagering,” noted Trent Troxel, vice president of the Catawba Nation Gaming Authority. 

“We also anticipate that a new audience in the Charlotte region and beyond will discover the casino as they come to wager on their favourite teams.”

The Catawba Two Kings Casino opened in July 2021 with 500 gaming machines and expanded in December to 1,000, including electronic table games. Several additional prefabricated modular structures have been added to the temporary facility to accommodate this latest addition.
