FanDuel Sportsbook debuts at Diamond Jo Casino in Northwood

30 August 2019

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Boyd Gaming and FanDuel Group today announced the grand opening of their first retail sportsbook in the state of Iowa, located at Diamond Jo Casino - Northwood.

The FanDuel Sportsbook, the first in the Midwest, opened to the public at noon today, as Football Hall of Famer and Minnesota sports legend John Randle placed the ceremonial first bet as part of a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The first official bet at the FanDuel Sportsbook was a Moneyline wager on the Twins for $93 (John’s former number).

FanDuel’s new sports betting retail location is conveniently located between the Cashier’s Cage and Big Wheel Bar. The FanDuel Sportsbook features three betting windows, six video displays including a large video wall, 11 self-service IGT PlaySports betting kiosks and one sports ticker. FanDuel provides its proprietary risk and trading technology that leverages the IGT PlaySports platform. The FanDuel Sportsbook offers bets on all major U.S. sports, including baseball, soccer, football, basketball, golf, boxing, motorsports racing and more.

The FanDuel Sportsbook at Diamond Jo Casino is the latest step in a rapidly expanding national partnership between FanDuel Group and Boyd Gaming, two of the nation’s leading players in gaming entertainment. Over the next several weeks, FanDuel Group plans to open sportsbooks at three additional Boyd Gaming properties in the Midwest: Diamond Jo Casino in Dubuque, Iowa; Blue Chip Casino Hotel and Spa in Michigan City, Indiana; and Belterra Casino Resort in Florence, Indiana. FanDuel also operates the sportsbook at Boyd Gaming’s Valley Forge Casino Resort in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, and recently launched mobile sports betting in Pennsylvania in partnership with Boyd Gaming.
