DraftKings agrees new sportsbook deal with Foxwoods
DraftKings has launched a new Sportsbook at Foxwoods. The new space will replace the temporary location that premiered in September. This opening comes after the successful launch of online sports betting and iGaming in Connecticut.
Located within Foxwoods in the Great Cedar area of the resort, the new two-story, 12,000-plus square foot sportsbook will be a place to bet, dine, game and experience fan-favorite teams across professional and collegiate sports. Fans will be able to place live bets via windows and kiosks and experience best-in-class customer service and amenities. The DraftKings Sportsbook at Foxwoods includes wall-to-wall televisions, anchored by one of the largest LED screens in the industry at 50 feet by 30 feet, multiple VIP rooms, two full bars including an ice rail and 24 beers on tap, and a full restaurant that will offer game-day favorites including burgers and wings.
“Since launching retail sports betting at Foxwoods in September, the demand has been strong and continues to grow,” says Jason Guyot, President and CEO of Foxwoods Resort Casino. “The new DraftKings Sportsbook at Foxwoods redefines what it means to bet, gather and play and delivers on our commitment to offer the best sports betting experience in the Northeast. With the NFL season in its peak, there is nothing more thrilling than taking a shot with your favorite team, and we’re honored to deliver this new kind of betting experience where guests and fans can get in on the action, all in one place.”
“Our latest collaborative effort with Foxwoods, complementing the recent launch of mobile sports betting and iGaming, now marks the 12th permanent retail sportsbook for DraftKings. The meticulously designed space will provide customers with a premier skin-in-the-game viewership experience accessible to Connecticut residents and beyond,” said Jason Robins, co-founder, CEO and Chairman of the Board, DraftKings. “As legalized sports betting continues to gain steam both in Connecticut and across the country, DraftKings is proud to be a brand consumers know and trust, and we remain excited about the possibilities that lie ahead as we team up with Foxwoods, a powerhouse in entertainment and hospitality.”
With the official launch of DraftKings Sportsbook at Foxwoods, fans can now bet and play any way they want – on property at the sportsbook or betting kiosks located across the resort, or via the mobile sports betting and iGaming app.
