Just a few weeks after entering the gambling market in Pennsylvania, Fanatics Betting and Gaming has expanded its reach by launching the Fanatics Sportsbook in Iowa. This means that players and visitors in Iowa will now have access to the dedicated Fanatics Sportsbook app, allowing them to partake in thrilling betting activities.
Iowa is now the twelfth state where the Fanatics Sportsbook is operational, following the recent acquisition of PointsBet’s US business. This acquisition has paved the way for the launch in Iowa, with all former PointsBet customers seamlessly transitioned to the new Fanatics Sportsbook app while retaining their account details and settings.
As part of the transition from PointsBet, the sportsbook at Catfish Bend Casino in Burlington will undergo a name and management change, accompanied by the installment of Suzohapp self-service kiosks to enhance the retail betting experience. Additionally, Fanatics is dedicated to offering responsible gambling tools to its customers, ensuring that they have access to resources for managing their time and money spent on the platform.
The company also highlighted some exciting features awaiting bettors who choose to play with the Fanatics Sportsbook, including the mobile-friendly design of the app and the unique offering of up to 5% of bets back in FanCash. This digital currency can be used for bonus bets or on Fanatics.com, providing customers with added flexibility and value for their wagers.
Moreover, the Discover feed within the app offers users valuable insights and information on marquee games, key stats, and trending bets, catering to the needs of sports enthusiasts. Lastly, the Fanatics Sportsbook prides itself on its industry-leading search functionality, ensuring an intuitive and seamless user experience for customers.
Amidst the launch and expansion news, Fanatics VIP president Michael Z. Hermalyn made headlines for filing a lawsuit against his former employer, DraftKings. This development adds an intriguing twist to the company’s growth and evolution in the competitive gambling and gaming market.
