Casinos Work to Launch Online Sports Betting in Kansas
Butler National Corporation has announced an agreement with Golden Nugget Online Gaming (GNOG), a subsidiary of DraftKings. The agreement was reached via Butler National’s wholly owned subsidiary that runs Boot Hill Casino & Resort in Dodge City, Kansas.
The agreement is designed to bring GNOG’s online sportsbook to Kansas, as long as it receives all the necessary licenses and regulatory approvals.
Kansas’ new sports betting laws for Butler National’s subsidiary to sign contracts with up to three sportsbook platform providers. The laws also allow the operator to offer sports betting at a retail sportsbook located at its Boot Hill Casino.
When sports betting goes live in Kansas, anyone who is of legal age and located within the state boundaries will be able to place bets directly from their mobile devices and computers or by visiting a lottery gaming facility.
We’re pleased with the regulatory efforts to implement sports wagering in Kansas. Golden Nugget Online Gaming is a recognised and established brand within the gaming industry. We’re thrilled our customers may soon experience all the excitement that online sports betting has to offer. We’re excited for Golden Nugget Online Gaming to be able to bring Kansans a seamless, safe and premium sports betting experience through its Golden Nugget Online Gaming-branded sportsbook, subject to receipt of requisite regulatory approvals. We are looking forward to driving new tourism and revenue for the state of Kansas into Dodge City.
This week it was also announced that the Oaklawn Racing Casino Resort has made a move towards online sports betting by signing a contract with betting platform provider Kambi.
