USA – It has been announced today that a deal has been struck between the sports betting firm Betfred and Colorado casino Saratoga Casino Black Hawk, formerly named Fitzgeralds Casino.
The deal between the two organisations, which is subject to approval, is an agreement to offer wagering on sports at the Colorado casino venue as it expands in to the sports betting market.
Betfred is a privately owned sportsbook company based in the UK with offices in Warrington and Salford. It has recently expanded in to the US market and is looking to build relationships with gambling establishments as more US states continue to legalise sports betting and online gambling.
Saratoga Casino Black Hawk was founded in 2013 and has been providing hospitality and gaming services for the past 7 years. The casino, which is part of Saratoga Harness Racing, has almost six hundred slot machine games and offers a range of table games for patrons to wager on including three card poker, craps, blackjack and roulette.
Group Chief Operating Officer at Betfred Mark Stebbings commented on the company’s excitement and vision:
“We are delighted to partner with Saratoga Casino Black Hawk. This is an exciting opportunity for both companies and we look forward to sharing our joint expertise to provide excellent service and value for sports bettors both on premise in Black Hawk and online to the people within the state of Colorado.”
Sentiments were shared by the parent company’s President Dan Gerrity who expressed his admiration for Betfred’s experience in the sports betting industry:
“We are excited to have Betfred as our sports wagering partner… With over 50 years of international experience in the industry, it’s a great opportunity to leverage their expertise along with the Saratoga brand to become the market leader in sports wagering in Colorado”
Sports wagering in the United States is provided by Betfred USA Sports, which is part of the Betfred Group.
