Subject to any final regulatory approvals, Penn National Gaming Inc is in final preparations today to open its first retail-branded Barstool Sportsbook at Ameristar Casino Resort Spa Black Hawk at 4 pm MT.

A new sports book located on the second floor of the casino has also been created by the company. The new betting counter, 24 ‘by 12’ video wall, and large odds boards build an atmosphere where consumers can enjoy a first-class wagering experience next to the various televisions where they can enjoy sports action from around the nation and around the world.
