SolSports Sports Betting
Casino Del Sol in Tucson decided to create its own sportsbook operator instead of partnering with a third-party operator. SolSports will offer guests a signature sports betting experience delivering a variety of sporting events and boasts that it will offer the most competitive lines in the state of Arizona.
The platform powering SolSports will come from Scientific Games’ OpenSports™, a leader in sports betting technology. The retail sportsbook is currently under construction and is expected to open in September, pending regulations from the Arizona Department of Gaming.
The 4,000-square-foot sportsbook will include over 60 televisions and luxury seating for more than 100 people. A full bar along with food service and six live betting windows will also be featured in the sportsbook. Self-service kiosks will be located throughout Casino Del Sol and Casino of the Sun. Both casinos are owned and operated by the Pascua Yaqui Tribe.
Kimberly Van Amburg, CEO of Casino Del Sol said,“Our goal is to continue to add to our offerings, so we are looking forward to providing our guests with another exceptional gaming experience with our new sportsbook. SolSports will provide the ultimate environment for guests to watch and bet on their favorite professional and college sporting events”.
