While sports betting is already legal in Iowa, the Grand Falls Casino and Resort is yet to launch sports betting operations.
Last week on Thursday, sports betting was launched at six casinos in Iowa. While left behind initially, Grand falls is planning to launch sports betting soon.
“We were hoping to have the ability to launch our online sportsbook which is elite sportsbook but unfortunately we’re still working through some regulations and stuff,” said Sharon Haselhoff, Grand Falls Casino & Resort general manager. “I think things are looking good and we should have things in place by later on this week.
Once the regulations are complete people will be able to take part in betting on professional sports, as well as collegiate sports and people can go to the casino ahead of time to register.”
At the launch, casinos in Altoona, Bettendorf, Osceola, and Waterloo offered to bet on-site and through a mobile app.
On the other hand, Casinos in Burlington and Council Bluffs are offering only on-site betting for now until their mobile systems are set up.
There are a total of 19 licensed casino operators in the state and it is expected that all 19 casinos offer sports betting.
According to the current regulations, players in Iowa must visit the casino gambling facility in person, prove their age and identity and set up an account to wager on sporting events.
