Golden Nugget Mississippi is upping its sports betting game with partner DraftKings Sportsbook. The property will go from utilizing the DraftKings platform on betting kiosks to rolling out a branded retail sportsbook early next year.

“Our team is proud to announce the addition of the DraftKings Sportsbook at Golden Nugget Casino Biloxi,” said Chett Harrison, General Manager of Golden Nugget Casino Biloxi. “Together with the leadership team at DraftKings, we are creating an amenity that patrons can enjoy while offering sports fans an unparalleled sports betting experience at one of the top entertainment destinations in Mississippi.”

The retail sportsbook will reside in a former section of the buffet. The area will include multiple video walls, stadium seating, and a VIP area. Bettors will also have access to 17 betting kiosks as well as a betting counter with five windows.

“The Golden Nugget Casino Biloxi is known for providing customers with a luxurious entertainment experience,”
said Michael Kibort, Senior Director of Retail Sportsbook Operations at DraftKings. “We look forward to opening the
doors to the newest addition to the property with a state-of-the-art retail sportsbook.”

The new sportsbook is set to debut in January.

Currently, only retail sports betting is allowed in Mississippi but that could change soon. The state has formed a task force to look into expanding the industry online.

The group met in October to hear from land-based stakeholders in the state. While most were in support of expanding online, there were a handful of detractors concerned about cannibalization.
