FanDuel has announced the launch of sportsbooks in Indiana and Iowa through its partnership with Boyd Gaming.
The operator will be launching sportsbooks in four Boyd facilities: Blue Chip Casino Hotel and Spa in Michigan City, Belterra Casino Resort in Florence and two Diamond Jo Casinos in Iowa.
The partnership, formed earlier this year, gives Boyd access to FanDuel’s sportsbook technology and allows FanDuel to operate in all states where Boyd holds gaming licenses.
FanDuel has already launched in Pennsylvania and Mississippi through the partnership, as well as launching mobile sports betting in Pennsylvania.
The two companies have also announced plans to introduce mobile sports betting in Iowa and Indiana under the FanDuel brand, pending regulatory approval.
Keith Smith, President and CEO of Boyd Gaming, said: "Together, Boyd Gaming and FanDuel Group continue to successfully capitalise on the historic opportunity afforded by the legalisation and expansion of sports betting in new states across the country.
"We are confident out partners at FanDuel will deliver excellent results in Iowa and Indiana as well, further expanding Boyd Gaming’s customer base and enhancing our long-term competitive appeal."
