Desert Diamond Casinos has announced the launch of its Desert Diamond Sportsbook offering at its Sahuarita and West Valley locations.
The launch, signalling the first phase of its sportsbook operations, was marked by a ribbon-cutting ceremony with leaders from the Tohono O’odham Nation and the Tohono O’odham Gaming Enterprise.
Desert Diamond stated that the commencement of its sports betting operations, in partnership with Kambi, ensures that its sportsbook is one of Arizona’s only locally-owned ventures, leading to a ‘personalized service, and profits from the operation are reinvested here in Arizona’.
Phase one of the launch includes six betting kiosks at the Sahuarita location and eight at the West Valley sportsbook, both featuring food, drinks, and wall-to-wall TV screens for fans to consume while betting on their favourite teams.
“We are thrilled to offer a whole new level of gaming entertainment to our guests,” said Mike Bean, CEO of the Tohono O’odham Gaming Enterprise. “The new Desert Diamond Sportsbook will also add more excitement to our gaming floors, where there is something for everyone to enjoy.”
Bean went on to say, “Hosting our own Sportsbook using the Kambi platform is unique in Arizona and ensures the more personalized service that is the hallmark of Desert Diamond Casinos.”
