New York based FanDuel has revealed that it will provide a retail, online and mobile sports wagering service at one of America’s oldest resorts, The Greenbrier in West Virginia. The Greenbrier plans to have an onsite wagering platform inside The Casino Club at The Greenbrier, America’s only private casino, as well as a FanDuel-branded online site and mobile application. Plans are to have the services running by autumn. The exact date will be contingent on when the state of West Virginia’s regulations are put in place.
Dr Jill Justice, president at The Greenbrier, said: “We’re excited to be able to offer this service to those guests who are interested. The Casino Club at The Greenbrier has been an attractive destination for our guests and members since its opening, and sports betting provides yet another element to the casino experience.”
The Casino Club at The Greenbrier opened in 2010. Reserved exclusively for resort guests, the 103,000-square-foot facility includes 320 slot machines and 35 table games inside an elegant smoke-free environment.
“We are honored to be chosen to provide sports wagering services at The Greenbrier, an iconic resort in the US,” said Matt King, CEO, FanDuel. “As we work towards building out a top sports betting product for the upcoming NFL season, we look forward to bringing West Virginia residents, sports fans, and visitors to The Greenbrier the best interactive sports experience on the market.”
FanDuel recently announced that, subject to customary closing conditions and regulatory approvals, it is combining with the U.S. operations of Paddy Power Betfair to capitalize on the sports betting market opportunity in the United States. The transaction is expected to complete in Q3 2018.
