Third mobile betting app launches in Arkansas
The Oaklawn Sports mobile app and oaklawnsports.com online site launched late last week without much press or fanfare. The launch took place just a day before the University of Arkansas kicked off their regular season at Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville against the Cincinnati Bearcats. The home favorite Razorbacks won the contest, 31-24.
The Razorbacks are next due to face an SEC rival, the South Carolina Gamecocks, on Saturday in Fayetteville. According to odds on the Oaklawn sports, Arkansas is a -9 point favorite.
Three Mobile Apps now available in Arkansas
With this latest launch, Oaklawn becomes the third and final of Arkansas’ three casinos to go live with their own mobile apps for sports betting in the state.
Upon sports wagering becoming legalized in Arkansas in March, Southland Casino Hotel in West Memphis introduced its Betly Sportsbook platforms for online and mobile users.
A couple of months later, Saracen Casino Resort in Pine Bluff launched its BetSaracen mobile app and online platform.
Large operators like DraftKings and FanDuel do not have a presence in Arkansas yet. A group of these national operators objected to a state rule mandating these bookmakers to share 51% of profits with local casinos when they establish a mobile app partnership. The operators are used to sharing around 5-15%.
Arkansas is currently the only state with a government rule requiring profit-sharing percentages.
Murky history of Arkansas Casinos
Hot Springs is famous for being a once organized crime hotbed with casinos carrying out illegal operations in the open. Before these casinos were closed by authorities in the 1960s, Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel and Al Capone, among other well-known gangsters, vacationed there.
Oaklawn is the only location in Hot Springs with legal casino gaming. The casino resort has a sportsbook and self-service sports betting kiosks.
