The renowned Golden Nugget Casino Biloxi, situated in the heart of Mississippi, has announced exciting plans to feature DraftKings retail sports betting in January 2024.

This initiative promises to revolutionize the sports betting experience in the region.

Innovative Betting Experience with DraftKings in Mississippi

The new sports betting space will have 17 live betting kiosks and five betting windows in addition to a viewing area equipped with three video walls.

Chett Harrison, general manager of Golden Nugget Casino Biloxi, said: “Our team is proud to announce the addition of DraftKings service at Golden Nugget Casino Biloxi.

We are creating an amenity that customers will love by offering an unparalleled sports betting experience in one of Mississippi’s premier entertainment destinations.”

During the construction phase, existing gaming services will continue to operate, ensuring visitors don’t miss out on any of the action.

Michael Kibort, senior director of operations at DraftKings, added: “Golden Nugget Casino Biloxi is known for providing customers with a luxurious entertainment experience.

We look forward to opening the doors of the newest addition to the property with a state-of-the-art retail betting service.”

Mississippi Betting Market

Additionally, in August, Golden Nugget Online Gaming expanded its operations with the launch of an online and mobile casino in Pennsylvania.

Marking a significant step in expanding its digital presence. However, Mississippi’s sports betting market has faced challenges.

In October, sports betting volume was 49.5 million dollars. In other words, a drop of 11.9% compared to October 2022, which registered 56.2 million dollars.

Revenue reached 7.3 million dollars, a decrease of 5.2% compared to the same period of the previous year.

According to the Mississippi Gaming Commission, coastal casinos led the way with $33.8 million in bets, generating $4.5 million in revenue.
