FanDuel Group has announced that it will take its sports betting services to the MotorCity Casino in Detroit, in a move that combines a top entertainment destination with one of the leading sportsbooks in the USA.
The partnership will immediately allow MotorCity guests and sports fans to place bets in a newly designed area of the award-casino, with the two-sportsbook set featuring six betting windows, 67 high-televisions, one ticker, a VIP area and 54 IGT PlaySports betting kiosks for self-service.
MotorCity Casino president Bruce Dall stated: “For two decades, we have been committed to reimagining the guest experience – consistently raising the bar with innovative entertainment, world-class luxury hotel accommodations and high energy gaming activities.
“This relationship takes it to the next level. With FanDuel, our guests will be able to engage with their favourite sports in a dynamic new way at Detroit’s only locally-owned and operated casino.”
MotorCity Casino’s FanDuel Sportsbook will accept bets on all major U.S. sports including baseball, hockey, soccer, soccer, basketball, golf, boxing, and motorsport racing among others.
In addition, the company will also oversee all key activities concerning betting for the Sportsbook as a result of the partnership.
CEO Matt King of FanDuel commented: “Detroit is an incredible sports town – the ‘City of Champions’. As we look to expand our national footprint and bring America’s top sportsbook to more customers across the country, this was a perfect fit.
“It has everything we look for – from the industry leading casino operation to the proud and passionate Midwest fan base. Exciting things are happening in Detroit, and we couldn’t be more excited about this move to the Motor City.”
