Sports betting operator, FanDuel has launched sportsbooks in Indiana and Iowa in partnership with gambling operator Boyd Gaming.
According to the partnership deal, the bookmaker will launch sportsbooks at four of Boyd Gaming’s gambling facilities including, Blue Chip Casino Hotel and Spa in Michigan City, Belterra Casino Resort in Florence and two Diamond Jo Casinos in Iowa.
The two companies struck a partnership earlier this year. Following the deal, Fanduel can offer sportsbooks in all states where Boyd is authorized to offer sports gambling products.
Recently, Major League Baseball and Fanduel inked a multi-year partnership deal. With the new partnership deal, the online gambling and sports betting operator also became the official gaming partner of the U.S. professional league.
Keith Smith, President, and CEO of Boyd Gaming said: “Together, Boyd Gaming and FanDuel Group continue to successfully capitalize on the historic opportunity afforded by the legalization and expansion of sports betting in new states across the country.
“We are confident our partners at FanDuel will deliver excellent results in Iowa and Indiana as well, further expanding Boyd Gaming’s customer base and enhancing our long-term competitive appeal.”
Both Fanduel and Boyd Gaming also have plans to launch mobile sports betting in Iowa and Indiana.
Last month, Iowa launched sports gambling operations.
