Del Lago Resort & Casino will start accepting sports bets this Friday.

The DraftKings Sportsbook at del Lago will officially open at noon on Friday, Aug. 23. The 6,000-square-foot lounge will include 23 self-service wagering kiosks, cashier stations, a full-service restaurant and bar with seating for nearly 200 people. 

Six-time NFL Pro Bowler Donovan McNabb will join leaders from del Lago and DraftKings as well as local officials for the ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday. McNabb, a former Syracuse University quarterback, played in the NFL for 13 seasons.

New York is the ninth state to permit and regulate sports betting after the state’s Gaming Commission approved regulations earlier this year.
