US – del Lago Casino’s sportsbook starts constructionBy Phil - 16 May 2019
del Lago Resort & Casino in Fingers lake, New York, is one step closer to accepting sports betting wages as construction for DraftKings Sportsbook at del Lago is officially underway.
The more than 6,000-square-foot lounge will be located on the casino floor near the entrance to The Vine Showroom. The luxurious sportsbook will boast a restaurant and bar, with seating for nearly 200 people. Guests can enjoy watching games on LED terminals featuring high-definition resolution or on the nearly floor-to-ceiling, state-of-the-art video display walls. Players may easily place their bets at one of the 20 self-service wagering kiosks or at one of the DraftKings cashier stations. The sportsbook will also feature cutting-edge odds boards, which will continually provide real-time updates and opportunities for in-game wagers.
“We are excited to begin the construction of our new sportsbook and offer this additional amenity for our guests,” said Lance Young, vice president of gaming operations. “This next phase in construction marks an incredible step forward for del Lago Resort & Casino. We are working closely with our partner DraftKings to ensure the lounge is truly a remarkable, state-of-the-art experience for our guests.”
DraftKings Sportsbook at del Lago will occupy the former Vine Restaurant and Bar location. Along with providing an exciting and vibrant sports gaming experience, the new sportsbook will feature a restaurant serving fan-favorite foods, craft cocktails, and an assortment of domestic and imported beer.
As soon as the state Gaming Commission finalizes the rules later this month, DraftKings Sportsbook at del Lago will be one step closer to opening its doors this summer.
