British bookmaker Betfred has agreed its third sports betting partnership in the United States with Pennsylvania’s Wind Creek Casino & Resort Bethlehem.
The agreement enables Betfred to launch a full retail and online sportsbook at Wind Creek Casino, subject to regulatory approval, and follows Betfred’s recent partnership with Colorado’s Saratoga Casino Black Hawk and last year’s sports betting launch in Iowa with Elite Casino Resorts.
“We look forward to the opportunity to work with Betfred to offer sports betting at Wind Creek Bethlehem,” said Wind Creek Hospitality president and CEO James Dorris. “Their experience and leadership in the sports wagering market gives us confidence that Betfred is an excellent partner as Wind Creek Bethlehem expands gaming offerings in Pennsylvania.”
Betfred Group chief operating officer Mark Stebbings commented: “Betfred have been providing sports betting in the UK for over 50 years and we are delighted to partner with Wind Creek Bethlehem where we will share our joint expertise.
“As part of our partnership we will provide excellent service and value for the sports bettors both on premise at Wind Creek Bethlehem and online to the wider population of Pennsylvania.”
Wind Creek Casino is owned by Alabama’s Poarch Band of Creek Indians, which also operates the Wind Creek Atmore, Wind Creek Wetumpka and Wind Creek Montgomery casinos in Alabama, as well as Wa She Shu Casino in Nevada, Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino in Aruba, Renaissance Curacao Resort & Casino in Curacao, and racetracks in Alabama and Florida.
