Tucson’s first retail sportsbook, SolSports at Casino Del Sol, has officially opened to the public this week. Guests now have the opportunity to watch and wager on a variety of professional and college sporting events at the new on-site facility.
Casino Del Sol is managing all sports betting activities as the sportsbook’s operator and bookmaker to deliver a signature, on-brand sports betting experience to guests. Scientific Games’ OpenSports is being used to power SolSports.
Peter Ycupicio, Chairman of the Pascua Yaqui Tribe, commented: “Our ability to offer sports wagering to our guests has been many years in the making, and we are elated to see our vision come to fruition with SolSports. This new gaming option will have a positive economic impact on our tribe and the state of Arizona.”
SolSports is located inside Casino Del Sol in the former Paradiso Lounge, next to the Bingo Hall. The spacious 4,000-square-foot venue surrounds guests with more than 60 televisions including jumbo flat screens and a high-definition video wall to allow viewing from every angle.
Guests can place a bet at any of the six live ticket writer counters or eight self-service betting kiosks.
“Our team developed a truly fantastic environment for sports fans to enjoy all of the game day action, and we are thrilled to welcome Tucsonans to experience the excitement of in-person sports betting at SolSports,” said CEO of Casino Del Sol, Kimberly Van Amburg.
