FanDuel Group has announced that it will be taking its sports betting services to Detroit’s MotorCity Casino, in a move that combines a premier destination for entertainment with one of the US’ leading sportsbooks.
Effective immediately, the partnership will allow MotorCity guests and sports fans to place bets in a newly designed area of the award-winning casino, with the two-story sportsbook set to feature six betting windows, 67 high-definition televisions, one ticker, a VIP area, and 54 self-service IGT PlaySports betting kiosks.
Bruce Dall, president of MotorCity Casino, 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 favorite sports in a dynamic new way at Detroit’s only locally-owned and operated casino.”
The FanDuel Sportsbook at MotorCity Casino will accept bets on all major US sports, including baseball, hockey, soccer, football, basketball, golf, boxing and motorsports racing amongst others.
Furthermore, as a result of the collaboration, the firm will also administer all core services affecting betting for the Sportsbook.
FanDuel CEO Matt King 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.”
