The Prairie Band Casino and Resort will become the first tribal casino to offer sports betting in Kansas when it launches in the fourth quarter of this year.
The Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation will offer sports betting kiosks linked up to its loyalty programe for slots, table games, and bingo.
Director of gaming Chris Garrow said: “We are partnering with the world’s leading odds provider and others to give our guests the finest sports betting experience. We have been doing free-to-play pick’em challenges for some time, and the results have been extremely positive. We’ve offered our guests and team members free jackpot pick’em challenges for the Big Game and the NCAA basketball tournament, with potential prizes ranging from $100,000 up to $1,000,000.”
Kansas legalised sports betting in September 2022. The state’s four federally recognised tribes negotiated with Governor Laura Kelly’s administration on a bill earlier this year.
