The state of Iowa just recently launched sports betting in its state, and one of the top-rated sportsbooks is operated by PointsBet Betting. PointsBet Betting and Catfish Bend Casino reached an agreement in April that had everyone in the sports betting world excited.
PointsBet is an Australian-based company that has turned into one of the top sports betting companies in the world. PointsBet is one of the most well-respected sportsbooks in the world and provides innovative technology that is changing the game.
Catfish Bend Casino and Resort is one of the biggest and best in the state of Iowa for both gambling and entertainment.
Catfish Bend Casino is located in Burlington, Iowa, and has been one of the most populated spots for sports betting in Iowa. These two companies have combined to create a retail sportsbook on-site at Catfish Bend, and also a mobile sportsbook.
It is the first-ever retail sportsbook that PointsBet has opened, as they have traditionally operated all online. If this new sportsbook goes well at Catfish Bend Casino, there is a good chance that more of them will pop up throughout the United States.
The new sportsbook lounge at the Catfish Bend Casino is one of the nicest places to bet in the state of Iowa, and it attracts more people than just sports fans. There is a sports bar within the lounge, and several other restaurants on-site at the Catfish Bend Casino.
The property has multi-screen video walls and a wall that displays the current betting lines. The Catfish Bend Casino and PointsBet sportsbook is a non-smoking facility, and is open from 9 am to 1 am daily.
Not The First
This isn’t the first time that PointsBet has operated a sportsbook within the United States. The major sports betting company opened up an online sportsbook in New Jersey in January, but this is the first time that they have joined the retail side of things.
PointsBet claims that they have the fastest and easiest to use app on the market, and they also offer the most bets on the most types of sports. Anyone who wants to place a bet via the PointsBet sportsbook app will need to register for a new account and place a deposit.
PointsBet and Catfish Bend had everything in place to be ready to go when Iowa launched sports betting. The sportsbook had a soft launch on the day that it became legalized, but is now fully open and ready for business.
Catfish Bend Resort and Casino knew that it wanted to operate a sportsbook, but it didn’t have the means necessary to get the job done. Iowa lawmakers opened the door for this partnership, by allowing outside companies to apply to operate a sportsbook within state borders.
The sportsbook lounge can hold up to 270 customers at one time, and there are also table games available to play. No food will be served in the sportsbook itself, but the Boogaloo Cafe is on-site at the resort and casino.
