DraftKings Inc. announced that it has reached an agreement with Scarlet Pearl Casino Resort in D'Iberville, Miss. to officially open DraftKings at Scarlet Pearl Sportsbook, following receipt of license from the Mississippi Gaming Commission, among other required regulatory approvals. Opening November 16, the sportsbook will transform Scarlet Pearl's existing PRL Bar into a multi-screen betting and social destination for sports lovers.
"We're thrilled to be working with Scarlet Pearl Casino Resort, whose leadership has a high bar for quality and a forward-thinking approach to sports betting; a perfect fit for DraftKings," said Matt Kalish, chief revenue officer and co-founder of DraftKings. "We're excited to bring and offer an innovative sports betting experience to sports fans in one of the largest and most competitive gaming markets in the U.S."
DraftKings at Scarlet Pearl Sportsbook plan to offer a superior customer experience that includes the opportunity to wager on dozens of sports. In addition, the sportsbook will soon offer live, in-game betting with three windows, giving sports fans a variety of ways to place their bets. Pending regulatory approval, the sportsbook plans to incorporate on-site kiosks and an on-premise mobile app.
"We are excited to introduce DraftKings, a New Way to game for our current and future guests," Scarlet Pearl Casino Resort CEO LuAnn Pappas said. "Our collaboration with DraftKings is an opportunity for us to continue to set high standards on the Mississippi Gulf Coast and give our players a new home for sports betting."
