Mississippi's Golden Nugget Casino Biloxi has partnered with US sports betting giant DraftKings for the addition of a high-tech retail sportsbook, set to open in January next year. The upcoming amenity will take over a section of the property’s former buffet area, which never returned after the pandemic.

The new sportsbook will feature video walls, stadium seating, and a VIP area. Bettors will also get access to 17 betting kiosks as well as a betting counter with five windows.

Our team is proud to announce the addition of the DraftKings Sportsbook at Golden Nugget Casino Biloxi,” said Chett Harrison, General Manager of Golden Nugget Casino Biloxi. “Together with the leadership team at DraftKings, we are creating an amenity that patrons can enjoy while offering sports fans an unparalleled sports betting experience at one of the top entertainment destinations in Mississippi.”

Harrison further noted: “The plan is to invest about $1 million and have the new area ready by early January for the playoff games and the Super Bowl. It’s going to be a grand place to watch a game.”

The sportsbook will have expansive video walls and state-of-the-art LED screens that are said to be “the largest seamless screen on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.” As per Harrison, the viewing area will get about 40 of the big, comfortable lounge chairs, and food and drinks will be available during the big games. 

The Golden Nugget Casino Biloxi is known for providing customers with a luxurious entertainment experience,” said Michael Kibort, Senior Director of Retail Sportsbook Operations at DraftKings. “We look forward to opening the doors to the newest addition to the property with a state-of-the-art retail sportsbook.”

Currently, the sportsbook at Golden Nugget Casino in Biloxi is powered by DraftKings’ products and technology after the company bought out the former supplier of the services at the property. The current sportsbook and kiosks remain open while the new area is under construction.

The new sportsbook will fill half of the former buffet at Golden Nugget Biloxi. “The other half will remain unused at this time,” Harrison said. "It’s currently being used when overflow meeting space is needed."

Customers visiting the retail sportsbook will get access to many of the same features available on the DraftKings Sportsbook app, allowing them to place same-game parlays, prop bets, and a variety of in-play betting options.
