US – We-Ko-Pa Casino unveils Betfred SportsBetting Kiosks

By - 24 November 2021

The Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation and Betfred Sports bring sports betting to the We-Ko-Pa Casino Resort in Arizona with the introduction of eight self-service kiosks.

The new user-friendly kiosks allow players to wager on select sports on pre-match, in-play or futures from straight bets, parlay cards, teasers, and more. They can then insert their winning tickets into the kiosks and use their profits to place additional bets.

Four of the eight kiosks are located throughout the casino floor. The remaining four kiosks can be found in WKP Sports & Entertainment, the casino’s sports-themed casual dining outlet that offers creative pub fare and craft beer along with Football parties on Monday Night and enormous flat-screen TVs that broadcast football games, boxing, UFC and other major sporting events.

“When designing the We-Ko-Pa Casino Resort, the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation wanted it to be the place to be for local residents and area visitors interested in the latest-and-greatest gaming options,” said Mary Ketterling, general manager. “Adding sports betting further helps us make our beautiful casino the one-stop gaming destination they envisioned.”

“We are now one step closer to offering Arizona sports bettors a great betting experience with the new self-service kiosks at We-Ko-Pa Casino Resort,” said Bryan Bennett, COO of Betfred Sports. “We look forward to opening the complete Betfred Sportsbook early next year.”

The terminals are powered by OpenBet’s retail technology and solutions that signals the leading sports betting provider’s commanding position in the newly regulated state. Four of OpenBet’s self-serving kiosks are located throughout the casino floor, with the remaining machines found in the casino’s sports-themed casual dining outlet, delivering an exciting new form of sports betting entertainment to the casino’s customers.

OpenBet will deliver more of its technology and solutions when the complete Betfred Sportsbook situated in Fort McDowell opens early next year.

The initial launch marks another important milestone in OpenBet’s partnership with Betfred to deliver its retail solutions to the operator in the US and follows similar launches across Colorado, Louisiana and Pennsylvania

Cathryn Lai, Chief Commercial Officer at OpenBet, said: “Extending our presence in Arizona so soon after the market opened is an exciting development for us. We’re proud to partner with Betfred Sports in yet another U.S. state and bring even more safe and responsible sports betting experiences to players. This latest launch epitomizes our ability to facilitate products for all kinds of operators thanks to our modular portfolio that caters all demands.”

Bryan Bennett, COO at Betfred Sports, said: “OpenBet remains our partner of choice as we increase our foothold within the U.S. sports betting market. The company’s technology and retail solutions meet our specific requirements to deliver a scalable, reliable and compliant platform. We’re delighted to have opened these betting kiosks and look forward to working alongside OpenBet and the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation over the coming months to launch our complete sportsbook at the casino.”
