BetFred USA Sports To Launch First Sportsbook In Iowa

Betfred USA Sports is set to launch its first sportsbook at Grand Falls Casino & Golf Resort in Larchwood, Iowa, expanding its presence across the US.

The sportsbook is due to open its doors on 30 January 2020, with the introduction in Iowa of legal online sports and mobile betting by the operator to follow in the weeks ahead.

Bryan Bennett, COO of Betfred USA Sports said: “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. 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.”

Visitors to the sportsbook will benefit from 80 screens, 10 recliners, 22 lounging chairs, 2 dedicated VIP areas, 5 top tables and a full bar and food service.

Sharon Haselhoff, Grand Falls General Manager, added: “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.”

With the national title game this weekend and the men’s college basketball tournament in March, the Betfred Sportsbook is opening just in time for some of the biggest sporting events of the year.

Betfred signed a new deal with Colorado-based Saratoga Casino Black Hawk last week to phase out sports betting facilities across the Centennial State.

The deal, which is pending regulatory approval, will see Betfred provide access to mobile and internet betting to Colorado bettors as well as a full sports book at the Black Hawk site.
