The sports betting company DraftKings has agreed to work with del Lago Resort & Casino if New York decides to legalize online sports betting.
The announcement was made Monday that DraftKings would set up a physical sportsbook at the del Lago Resort & Casino in Tyre. As part of the agreement, there would also be a mobile and online sports wagering option.
Earlier this year, the Supreme Court ruled that states can legalize sports betting if they so choose.
“New York is one of the largest revenue opportunities for future sports wagering operators and we are thrilled to partner with del Lago Resort & Casino to offer sports fans a unique and novel sports betting experience, both at a physical sportsbook and on mobile when permitted,” said Jason Robins, CEO and co-founder of DraftKings.
DraftKings rose in popularity through its daily fantasy sports contests.
