Good news for bettors in Iowa! One of the most popular European online sports betting and casino giant, Unibet Sportsbook is ready to launch in Iowa. They have recently made an announcement that the sportsbook is set to go live in Iowa by August. However, the exact launch date is not specified yet. The Kindred Group perfectly planned the Unibet Iowa launch in August to be ready for the NFL and soccer leagues.
Unibet Sportsbook would make partnership with Harrah’s Council Bluffs Casino to enter the Iowa sports betting market. The Council Bluffs is already hosting William Hill brand. Therefore, Unibet will be its second skin.
Unibet IA Sportsbook Launch
Earlier this year, Manuel Stan, the US senior vice president at Unibet, said: “We continue to expand our footprint in the Midwest with at least two states in 2021: Iowa and Illinois. Having a strong regional footprint is key to being successful in each of the states in the region.”
In Illinois and Iowa, Unibet sportsbook applied for license and waiting for an approval from State’s Gaming Board to go live. After months of planning and hard work from the Kindred team, Unibet IA sportsbook is set to launch in time for the start of a busy NFL and NCAAF season.
“We are working with the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission through the licensing process. We hopeful will launch in the next few months,” Stan said.
Unibet will join the current Iowa sports betting sites including BetMGM, PointsBet, FanDuel, WilliamHill, and BetRivers.
We can expect Unibet Iowa sportsbook to offer the same welcome bonus as in Indiana. New players will be able to claim $40 for free just for signing up and a $500 risk-free first bet.
