A temporary location will house DraftKings’ retail sportsbook at the Twin River Worldwide Holdings’ Mardi Gras Casino in Black Hawk, Colorado, US.
The digital sports entertainment company and the casino jointly announced their partnership in the sports betting business, although initially it will be on the first floor of the casino, featuring eight self-service betting kiosks, a cashier window and several large flat screened TVs throughout the space.
“As our partners at Mardi Gras Casino work to expand their current operations and location, we will present for their customers real-time gaming opportunities as sports begin to make their return,” said Ezra Kucharz, DraftKings’ chief business officer.
The installation at the Mardi Gras in Black Hawk will be the seventh DraftKings-branded retail location, joining locations in Iowa, Mississippi, New Jersey and New York.
Construction of the permanent sportsbook location has been started and when opened will reveal a state-of-the-art venue which will have a large feature bar, an expansive wall of TVs and VIP lounge area access.
