Iowa casinos add simulcast wagering

Three casinos of the American state will offer a complete service of wagering in horse and dog racing.

US.- Wild Rose Casinos and Resorts, American gaming operator, will become the first brand to offer simulcast wagering in Iowa. The innovative betting system for horse and dog racing will be delivered in three of Wild Rose Casinos and Resorts in the states.

Players will enjoy the exclusive service in Wild Rose Casinos and Resorts in Clinton, Jefferson and Emmetsburg. Three salons are going to take advantage of the 2014 state law that allows betting on video simulcasts of horse and dog races at casinos that do not offer live racing.

Tom Timmons, president and chief operating officer of Wild Rose Casinos, explained that they decided to set the simulcast wagering services for the Breeders’ Cup, an annual series of races that will be run in early November at Santa Anita Park in California.

The only Iowa gambling operations that offer wagering on simulcasts of horse and dog races from outside tracks are Prairie Meadows Racetrack and Casino in Altoona and Iowa Greyhound Park in Dubuque, along with Meskwaki Bingo Casino Hotel at Tama.
