DraftKings Inc has opened its new DraftKings Sportsbook at the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut, replacing the temporary location that premiered in September.

Opening last Saturday and located within Foxwoods in the Great Cedar area of the resort, the new two-story, 12,000-plus square foot sportsbook will provide Constitution State sports fans with a place to bet, dine, game, and experience fan-favorite teams across professional and collegiate sports.

Fans will be able to place live bets via windows and kiosks. The sportsbook includes wall-to-wall televisions, LED screens, multiple VIP rooms, two bars, and a restaurant.

Jason Guyot, President and CEO of Foxwoods Resort Casino, stated: “Since launching retail sports betting at Foxwoods in September, the demand has been strong and continues to grow. The new DraftKings Sportsbook at Foxwoods redefines what it means to bet, gather and play and delivers on our commitment to offer the best sports betting experience in the Northeast.

“With the NFL season in its peak, there is nothing more thrilling than taking a shot with your favorite team, and we’re honored to deliver this new kind of betting experience where guests and fans can get in on the action, all in one place.”

The opening of the DraftKings Sportsbook at the Foxwoods Resort Casino comes after the successful launch of online sports betting and igaming in Connecticut, which began in October.

Jason Robins, Co-founder, CEO, and Chairman of the Board, DraftKings, commented: “Our latest collaborative effort with Foxwoods, complementing the recent launch of mobile sports betting and igaming, now marks the 12th permanent retail sportsbook for DraftKings.

“The meticulously designed space will provide customers with a premier skin-in-the-game viewership experience accessible to Connecticut residents and beyond.

“As legalized sports betting continues to gain steam both in Connecticut and across the country, DraftKings is proud to be a brand consumers know and trust, and we remain excited about the possibilities that lie ahead as we team up with Foxwoods, a powerhouse in entertainment and hospitality.”

With the official launch of DraftKings Sportsbook at Foxwoods, fans can now bet on the property at the sportsbook or betting kiosks located across the resort, or via the operator’s mobile sports betting and igaming app.
