DraftKings Launches Sportsbook App in Iowa

JEFFERSON — DraftKings Inc. debuted its mobile and online sportsbook in Iowa on Monday, allowing anyone inside state lines 21 and over to place bets on their favorite teams and sporting events after in-person registration at any of the three Wild Rose casinos.

The app’s launch offers fans a new, easily accessible means of engaging with the sports they love in the state, following the opening of three Wild Rose Sportsbooks powered by DraftKings in fall 2019.

“We believe DraftKings is offering the best mobile app yet to Iowa sports betting enthusiasts,” said Tom Timmons, president and COO of Wild Rose. “Since we opened the sportsbooks, we have been deluged with requests for this app. We are happy to offer it now, with the NCAA basketball tournament just around the corner.”

Sports bettors in Iowa will be able to place bets on all major U.S. sports, including professional and college football, baseball, professional and college basketball, hockey, golf, auto racing and much more.

State law requires bettors to finalize their DraftKings mobile and online sports betting registration in person at a Wild Rose-DraftKings sportsbook in Clinton, Emmetsburg or Jefferson. After registering in person, DraftKings customers can bet via the Sportsbook mobile app and online site from anywhere in the state.

After Jan. 1, 2021, customers will no longer be required to register in person.
