What Sportsbooks Will Operate In Kansas?
Kansans will have the option of mobile or retail (in-person) sports betting in the state. A complete list has not yet been made available, but here are some of the operators we can expect to see.
FanDuel Sportsbook and DraftKings Sportsbook became the first two operators to offer pre-launch bonuses, indicating that they will be live in Kansas. FanDuel is the country’s largest operator with DraftKings not far behind. Two other large books– BetMGM and Cesars Sportsbook– are also offering pre-launch bonuses to bettors who sign up before Sept. 1.
PointsBet secured a deal way back in January 2020 to operate with Kansas Crossing Casino (below), but we can expect them to launch a mobile app as well. PointsBet launched with newer states like Michigan and Louisiana, and they’ll launch alongside Ohio in 2023.
BallyBet and bet365 have made a more concerted push in newer states like Ohio and Massachusetts this year, and it’s likely they’ll jump on Kansas as well. While Kansas itself doesn’t have any professional sports teams to partner with, it expects to be a busy betting market.
Ultimately, there’s 12 spots up for grabs (five left), with each of Kansas’ four casinos being allowed three “skins” each. Skins refer to online book licenses hosted by a “master license” (in this case, casinos). The partnerships include:
- Hollywood Casino: Barstool Sportsbook, TBA, TBA
- Kansas Star Casino: BetMGM, FanDuel Sportsbook, TBA
- Boot Hill Casino & Resort: DraftKings Sportsbook, BallyBet, TBA
- Kansas Crossing: PointsBet, Caesars Sportsbook, TBA
As mentioned, Kansas has four casinos, each of which will host a retail sportsbook. Two locations have already secured their retail sportsbook. The other two are yet to announce one.
Barstool Sportsbook will be located inside the Hollywood Casino at Kansas Speedway while DraftKings Sportsbook will operate inside the Boot Hill Casino & Resort. The Kansas Star Casino and Kansas Crossing haven’t announced retail books.
Keep an eye out for announcements from operators to fill the remaining two retail sports and five mobile spots in the coming days.
