DraftKings and Wild Rose Casino & Resort have completed the opening of three Wild Rose Sportsbooks. Powered by DraftKings, the new facilities feature at each of the Wild Rose Casino & Resort locations in Jefferson, Emmetsburg and Clinton, Iowa. 

The newest sportsbooks add to DraftKings’ existing lineup of retail locations in New York, New Jersey and Mississippi. Each will be outfitted with betting kiosks and large video walls, a mix of smaller TVs, odds boards and a scrolling ticker with live score updates, stats and other player information. 

Fans will be able to place wagers at three ticket windows, including one at the cashier in each casino, and six self-service betting kiosks in each of the sportsbooks. 

“Football season is in full swing and it’s the perfect time to bring our retail sports betting experience to Iowa,” said Tim Dent, Chief Compliance Officer at DraftKings. “Our retail locations allow fans to have an exceptional in-person experience with our product and we are proud to show off our industry-leading technological prowess in each of the three locations.  Iowa sports fans are in for a great time.”

“This sports book powered by DraftKings rounds out the entertainment options Wild Rose presents to its customers” said the firm’s President and Chief Operating Officer Tom Timmons. “More important, together with DraftKings, we are tapping into an emerging market of fans and players who enjoy the excitement and competition of sports betting.”

Sports bettors in Iowa will be able to place bets on all major US sports, including professional and college football, baseball, professional and college basketball, hockey, golf, auto racing and much more seven days a week. The hours of operation at each sportsbook will vary by location.  

An important distinction in Iowa is that sportsbooks are not permitted to accept player proposition wagers involving an Iowa university or college. This regulation also extends to the opponents in games with Iowa schools. Pre-match and in-game wagering on Iowa schools and their opponents is permitted.
