Prairie Band Casino and Resort, located Kansas, will launch retail sports betting with an official opening on January 19.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony will mark the opening of the first locally-owned sportsbook in Kansas.
Sportsbook Manager Kyle Sipe said: “We’re thrilled to launch the only locally-owned sportsbook in Kansas. Our first-class betting product combined with premier resort amenities will provide guests an unparalleled sports betting experience.”
The new sports book will offer 10 betting kiosks where customers can place bets on their favorite sports teams. Additionally, the area is equipped with multiple televisions and provides food and beverage options. Zeke Rupnick, Chairperson of the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation, has already placed the first bet with a $20 punt on the University of Kansas (KU) Jayhawks to win the National Championship.
