Hot on the heels of the statement which the Iowa cornfields where“Field of Dreams“ was filmed will host a Yankees vs. White Sox match next season comes the information that sports betting will arrive at Iowa much sooner.
Ameristar Casino Council Bluffs is predicted to begin accepting wagers on sports August 15, according to a Penn National Gaming news release.
„Iowa is poised to become the first midwestern country to provide sports wagering because the federal ban was repealed last year,“ Timothy J. Wilmott, chief executive officer of Penn National said in a prepared statement. „We appreciate the diligence of the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission that will enable us to begin offering this amazing new amenity in Ameristar Casino Council Bluffs prior to the kickoff of football season.“
Tim Dwight, an Iowa native, 10-year NFL veteran who played in Super Bowl XXXIII and was a two-time All-American in the University of Iowa is advised to make the match’s first sports wager in its own new renovated sports lounge.
Ameristar’s sportsbook is setting up shop in the casino’s older Amerisports Bar & Grill. It’ll contain a wagering counter with ticket writer stations and many new televisions for visitors to capture all the action.
Kiosks also will be found through the home, offering an avalanche of sports wagering options from your National Football League to the Premier League.
It is expected that Ameristar Council Bluffs with its own state-of-the-art sports wagering sofa will become a destination for bettors and sports lovers from Iowa and Nebraska. The casino is right across the stateline from larger Omaha, Nebraska.
„Customers were clamoring to put sports bets because the legislation passed earlier this season,“ explained Paul Czak, General Manager in Ameristar Casino Council Bluffs, said in a prepared statement. „Collegiate and professional sports are embedded in the University of Iowa and Nebraska. We look forward to welcoming customers from across the area at the amazing new sports book at Ameristar Casino Council Bluffs.“
In addition, it is a sure bet that the match will likely be high touted at Ameristar’s sports books when it’s played Dyersville, IA., on Aug. 13, 2020 on a temporary, 8,000-seat stadium which will be built adjacent to the overburdened film ballfield cut out of a cornfield. A pathway will connect the temporary ballpark with all the film location in which the film’s prophecy was uttered in hushed tones: Should you build it, he will come.“
„As a sport that’s proud of its own history linking productions, Major League Baseball is eager to deliver a regular season game to the site of Field of Dreams,“ MLB Commissioner Robert D. Manfred Jr. stated in a news release. „We look forward to observing the movie’s enduring concept of how baseball attracts folks together at this special cornfield in Iowa.“
