The Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation and Betfred Sports announced Tuesday the launch of sports betting in the We-Ko-Pa Casino Resort in Fort McDowell, Arizona, with the introduction of eight self-service kiosks. 

These kiosks are powered by OpenBet’s retail technology and solutions, and have been described by the companies as “user-friendly”, allow players to wager on select sports on pre-match, in-play or futures from straight bets, parlay cards, teasers and more. They can insert their winning tickets into the kiosks and use their profits to place additional bets. 

Four of the eight kiosks are located throughout the casino floor. The remaining ones can be found in WKP Sports & Entertainment, the casino’s sports-themed casual dining outlet that offers football parties on Monday Night, and features flat-screen TVs that broadcast football games, boxing, UFC and other major sporting events.

OpenBet will deliver more of its technology and solutions when the complete Betfred Sportsbook situated in Fort McDowell opens early next year. 

In an official press release, Mary Ketterling, We-Ko-Pa Casino Resort’s General Manager, spoke about this new alliance and said: “When designing the We-Ko-Pa Casino Resort, the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation wanted it to be the place to be for local residents and area visitors interested in the latest-and-greatest gaming options. Adding sports betting further helps us make our beautiful casino the one-stop gaming destination they envisioned”.

Bryan Bennet, COO of Betfred Sports, added: “We are now one step closer to offering Arizona sports bettors a great betting experience with the new self-service kiosks at We-Ko-Pa Casino Resort. We look forward to opening the complete Betfred Sportsbook early next year."
