Kansas Casino signs Mobile betting deal with DraftKings & Bally’s
In the first casino-sportsbook partnership in Kansas, Dodge City’s Boot Hill Casino has announced a partnership with DraftKings and Bally’s. The news comes just days after the legalization of sports betting in Kansas.
Status of Sports Betting in Kansas
On May 12, Governor Laura Kelly signed a bill into law that legalized sports wagering in Kansas. Boot Hill Casino is one of four state-owned casinos permitted by the state to provide retail sports betting in the Sunflower State. The other three casinos with online sports betting licenses are Hollywood Casino, Kansas Star Casino, and Kansas Crossing Casino. The tribal casinos in the state will be able to operate retail sportsbooks in their respective casinos.
The legislation also states there will be a 10% tax on all operators; 80% of the accumulated tax revenue will go towards encouraging sports teams to Kansas. This condition has not gone down well with lawmakers.
Under new Kansas law, digital sites must be “tethered” to one of Kansas’ four state-owned casinos, the Kansas Speedway, or their only professional sports team, Sporting Kansas City. Consequently, mobile operators must partner with one of these organizations, highlighted by DraftKings’ and Ballys’ agreement with Boot Hill.
Clark Stewart, CEO of Boot Hill owner and operator, said they worked “diligently” to bring a safe and seamless sports betting experience to Kansas. Stewart added they are “ready to work with DraftKings and Bally’s” to make sports betting available in Kansas.
The finer details of the agreement have not been revealed; the only thing we know is that DraftKings and Bally’s will be able to take mobile wagers once the sports betting market has officially launched in Kansas. The operators hope this will occur before the football season. Per the legislation, these two partnerships leave Boot Hill with a sole remaining mobile operator they can partner with.
In addition to the other three licenses, Boot Hill and the other state-owned casinos are also qualified to open retail sportsbooks at their casinos. Boot Hill has revealed that they intend to open a retail sportsbook when sports wagering is launched.
