Presque Isle Downs & Casino launches BetAmerica sportsbook

By Owain Flanders

Presque Isle Downs & Casino in Erie, Pennsylvania opens its BetAmerica sportsbook today (Thursday), to coincide with the start of this year’s NFL pre-season.

The sportsbook will feature 50 sports wagering kiosks within the newly-renovated sportsbook area of the casino, with the remainder in the casino’s centre bar, high-limit room and non-smoking area.

Presque Isle Casino was acquired by Churchill Downs in January, and the new sportsbook demonstrates an attempt to further the latter’s position in a growing sports betting market within the US.

Kevin O’Sullivan, Vice President and General Manager of Presque Isle Downs & Casino, said: “We’re confident that the addition of the BetAmerica sportsbook will help us draw an even larger crowd of sports fans and racing enthusiasts from across Pennsylvania and from surrounding states.

“This is great news, not just for Presque Isle Casino, but for the Erie community at large that benefits from increased tourism and interest in our city.”
