Sports betting launches at Arkansas’ Oaklawn Racing
Oaklawn Racing Casino Resort has become the first venue to launch sports betting in Arkansas, the ninth state to begin taking bets since the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act was struck down.
The venue launched legal wagering from July 1, following approval from the Arkansas Racing Commission, within its Race & Sports Book, with self-service betting kiosks to be rolled out throughout the venue.
Customers can now bet on a range of sports, with features such as in-play wagering, proposition betting, parlays and futures all available.
“We’re excited to now be offering sports wagering,” the venue’s general manager Wayne Smith said. “It’s a new level of entertainment for our guests.”
