FanDuel launches online sportsbook in Iowa with Boyd Gaming


Flutter Entertainment-owned FanDuel Group has announced the launch of its online and mobile sportsbook in Iowa, through its partnership with Boyd Gaming.

Customers can register for the online and mobile sportsbook at Boyd’s Diamond Jo Casino in Dubuque or Northwood Iowa, though this will only be required until January 1 next year, when Iowa will allow players to register online or in-app.

After signing up, users can place wagers across professional football, basketball, baseball, golf, mixed martial arts, soccer and tennis.

FanDuel’s online and mobile sportsbooks operate via the PlaySports platform from International Game Technology (IGT).

Iowa is the seventh state in which FanDuel has launched its online sportsbook, following Colorado, Indiana, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and, this week, Illinois.

The Illinois launch, also carried out in partnership with Boyd Gaming, includes the opening of a retail sportsbook at Boyd’s Par-A-Dice Casino in East Peoria, Illinois, pending the regulatory approval of land-based wagering in the state.

Boyd and FanDuel began working together in mid-2018, and have also launched mobile sports betting apps in Indiana and Pennsylvania, as well as retail facilities at eight Boyd properties across five US states.
