Golden Nugget Casino Biloxi is about to elevate its gaming experience by adding a cutting-edge retail sportsbook in partnership with DraftKings Inc. The casino, situated on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico, is making a bold move by transforming part of its former buffet space into a high-tech haven for sports enthusiasts.
A Grand Mississippi Viewing Experience
General Manager Chett Harrison is enthusiastic about the upcoming transformation, stating, “We are in the process of building that now.” With an investment of around $1 million, the new area is set to open its doors in early January, just in time for the playoff games and the highly anticipated Super Bowl. Harrison promises, “It’s going to be a grand place to watch a game.”
Significantly, the main attraction of the DraftKings Sportsbook is a super fancy LED screen. It is definitely one of the biggest seamless ones on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. There are about 40 comfy chairs, making it a cozy spot to watch the most thrilling parts of the game. And if you’re into betting, they’ve got you covered with 17 live kiosks and five betting windows to make the whole betting experience super smooth.
Seamless Integration with DraftKings
Golden Nugget Biloxi’s current sportsbook is already powered by DraftKings’ technology and products. It offers patrons access to features available on the DraftKings Sportsbook app.
General Manager Harrison emphasized, “Together with the leadership team at DraftKings, we are creating an amenity that patrons can enjoy while offering sports fans an unparalleled sports betting experience.”
