Kentucky based wagering firm Churchill Downs Incorporated has launched a new retail sportsbook under its BetAmerica brand at the Rising Star Casino Resort in Rising Sun, Indiana this week.
Located within a one-hour’s drive of Cincinnati and within two hours of Indianapolis and Louisville, the new sportsbook offers wagering on professional sports including the NFL, NBA, MLB, and NHL, alongside college sports and major international sporting events.
The 3,000-square foot facility will broadcast games on more than 30 television screens, and players can place their bets at 16 automated betting kiosks, or at windows with specially-trained sportsbook staff.
Additionally, BetAmerica will offer online sports wagering across Indiana, subject to gaming license approvals. The agreement with Rising Star Casino Resort’s owner, Full House Resorts, also allows the brand to offer online sports wagering in the state of Colorado following its recent legislation approval, and a retail sportsbook at the Bronco Billy’s Casino and Hotel in Cripple Creek.
“We are excited to deliver a state-of-the-art sports wagering product to the residents of Indiana,” said Bill Carstanjen, CEO of CDI. “Our experience as the leader in online wagering in the US will enable us to offer our customers the very best mobile and in-venue sports betting experience.”
“We are thrilled to offer our premier sports betting platform to Indiana residents and visitors from nearby states,” said BetAmerica President Ian Williams.
