Golden Nugget Casino Biloxi and DraftKings Inc. announced today that the DraftKings Sportsbook will become the featured retail sportsbook at Golden Nugget Casino Biloxi. The plans call for an all-new, expansive retail sportsbook area that will open in January 2024. The current retail sportsbook at Golden Nugget – Biloxi is now powered by DraftKings’ product and technology and includes many of the same features available on the DraftKings Sportsbook app, giving customers the ability to place Same Game Parlays, prop bets and an array of in-play betting options.
“Our team is proud to announce the addition of the DraftKings Sportsbook at Golden Nugget Casino Biloxi,” said Chett Harrison, General Manager of Golden Nugget Casino Biloxi. “Together with the leadership team at DraftKings, we are creating an amenity that patrons can enjoy, while offering sports fans an unparalleled sports betting experience at one of the top entertainment destinations in Mississippi.”
Golden Nugget Casino Biloxi will transform a portion of the former buffet into the new DraftKings Sportsbook. The space will include three video walls with state-of-the-art LED screens, and a viewing area with VIP and stadium seating. In addition to the updated viewing experience, the retail sportsbook will also include seventeen live betting kiosks, and five betting windows.
