Churchill Downs has announced a definitive agreement with Full House Resorts to operate a retail BetAmerica Sportsbook at the Rising Star Casino Resort in Southern Indiana and to deploy its BetAmerica online sports wagering platform across the state of Indiana, subject to gaming license approvals.

The agreement also allows CDI to offer retail and online sports wagering under the BetAmerica brand in Colorado, using Full House Resorts’ operating license for Bronco Billy’s Casino in Cripple Creek, Colorado, subject to approval of legislation by Colorado residents, issuance of final regulations, and gaming license approvals. The retail BetAmerica Sportsbook would be offered at the Bronco Billy’s Casino and Hotel. Colorado residents will vote this November on whether to ratify Colorado’s sports betting bill, HB 19-1327.

“We believe our innovative, state-of-the-art products and deep experience as the leader in online horse racing wagering enable us to introduce a premier sports betting platform in Indiana,” said Bill Carstanjen, CEO of CDI. “We look forward to the opportunity to provide our BetAmerica Sportsbook to the residents of Colorado in the future as well.”

Customers will have the opportunity to bet on major professional sports including the NFL, NHL, MLB and collegiate sports, as well as sporting events happening all over the world. The BetAmerica Sportsbook also provides in-game betting, early cash out options, and enhanced bonuses and products.
