New “FanDuel Sportsbook at MotorCity Casino Hotel” coming to Detroit just in time for NCAA Tourney
In an agreement that brings together America’s No. 1 sportsbook with a premier destination for entertainment in Detroit, FanDuel Group will take its industry-leading sports betting services to MotorCity Casino Hotel. Beginning on March 12, 2020, this collaboration will allow guests and sports fans to place bets in an exciting, newly designed area of the award-winning casino.
The two-story sportsbook will feature six betting windows, 67 high-definition televisions, one ticker, a VIP area, and 54 self-service IGT PlaySports betting kiosks. The FanDuel Sportsbook at MotorCity Casino Hotel will accept bets on all major U.S. sports, including baseball, hockey, soccer, football, basketball, golf, boxing, motorsports racing, and more.
“For two decades, we have been committed to reimagining the guest experience, consistently raising the bar with innovative entertainment, world-class luxury hotel accommodations and high energy gaming activities,” said Bruce Dall, president of MotorCity Casino Hotel. “This relationship takes it to the next level. With FanDuel, our guests will be able to engage with their favorite sports in a dynamic new way at Detroit’s only locally-owned and operated casino.”
“Detroit is an incredible sports town — the ‘City of Champions’. As we look to expand our national footprint and bring America’s top sportsbook to more customers across the country, this was a perfect fit,” said Matt King, chief executive officer of FanDuel Group. “It has everything we look for — from the industry leading casino operation to the proud and passionate Midwest fan base. Exciting things are happening in Detroit, and we couldn’t be more excited about this move to the Motor City.”
FanDuel will administer all core services affecting betting for the Sportsbook. As such, guests can place bets on a number of games, including the Detroit Tigers and Detroit Red Wings. Operating in absolute compliance with all gaming and sports league rules and regulations, MotorCity Casino revenue is explicitly not tied to the outcome of any particular baseball or hockey game.
