Horseshoe Tunica opens sports betting

13 August 2018

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Horseshoe Casino & Hotel - Tunica opened sports betting today with the grand opening of their sportsbook, The Book at Horseshoe Tunica. Celebrities and government officials joined the celebration with a former professional football running back and current professional wrestler, DeAngelo Williams and founding member of N’SYNC Chris Kirkpatrick along with Webster Franklin, President of the Tunica Convention & Visitors Bureau placing the first sports bets at Horseshoe Tunica.

“Sports betting is a new product and it’s something that we’re excited about both from the direct benefits of booking bets at Horseshoe, but also from the indirect benefits of being an added gaming amenity that can attract new customer segments and bring people back to Tunica,” said R. Scott Barber, Regional President, Caesars Mid-South.

Williams and Kirkpatrick placed their bets on their favorite teams.

Government officials and dignitaries that were on hand for the celebration included Larry Gregory, Executive Director of the Mississippi Gaming & Hospitality Association; Allen Godfrey, Executive Director of the Mississippi Gaming Commission; Chuck Cariker, Mayor of Tunica; and Webster Franklin, President & CEO of Tunica Convention & Visitors Bureau; and Mississippi State House of Representative Richard Bennett. Bennett was the former chairman of the House Gaming Committee when state legislation was passed to repeal the prohibition of sports betting in Mississippi.

“We’re excited about the new season and we are hoping to put a shot in the arm here in Tunica,” said Mississippi State House of Representative Richard Bennett.

Harrah's Gulf Coast anticipates opening their sports book on 20 August 2019.
