Indiana Grand Racing and Casino is going to launch legalised sports betting on September 1.

That date, which is tentative, would open sports betting in Shelbyville two days before Caesar’s Entertainment opens betting at the Winner’s Circle on Pennsylvania Street in downtown Indianapolis.

Horseshoe Hammond Casino is set to open “The Book” on September 4, also in time for the start of the NFL’s regular season on September 5.

Caesar’s also announced sports betting would begin at Harrah’s Hoosier Park Racing and Casino on September 19. “The Book” is a brand-new construction overlooking the facility’s race track and offer state-of-the-art audio and visual technology, in addition to access to food and beverages.

Off-track betting properties in Clarksville, New Haven and Fort Wayne will also start offering sports betting in October.

Red Rake Gaming (Red Rake), a leading online casino games supplier, has entered into their first agreement as games supplier to the social casino industry. Thanks to this deal, Wind Creek Hospitality (WCH), an authority of the Poarch Band of Creek Indians, will have access to the full portfolio of Red Rake Gaming games.

WCH operates several gaming facilities in Alabama, Pennsylvania, Nevada, Aruba and Curacao, and offers online social casino games to its customers. Red Rake’s offering, which consists of slots, video bingo and table games will be available for the WCH social casino customers in the coming weeks.

Although WCH is the first social casino customer in Red Rake’s history, this is not the first step of the Spanish supplier in the social casino industry, as they have been developing and operating social casino games for almost a decade.

Nick Barr, Managing Director of Red Rake Malta, commented on the deal: “We are honoured to work alongside Wind Creek in their social casino business. This a significant step for us, because not only is this our first partner in the social casino industry as a B2B entity, but also because it is the foundation of what we expect to be another great regulated market for us in terms of real money. We anticipate a great partnership with Wind Creek for many years to come”

Ron Nesbitt, WCH Vice President of Game Operations, added: “Our social gaming site, WindCreekCasino.com, provides our customers an engaging and interactive experience that has proven to be an excellent retention tool for us over the years. We are delighted to enhance our offering with the addition of Red Rake Gaming content. The games provided are very strong, with high quality graphics, action packed feature games, and immersive bonus rounds.

Tim Wilmott has retired from the American Gaming Association as its chairman. The legalisation and expansion of sports betting has been a key marker of Wilmott’s term.

He told AGA members: “Once PASPA happened everything changed,” referring to a Supreme Court ruling that overturned a ban on sports betting. Since then, 13 states so far have launched legalised sports betting operations in casinos, racetracks and on mobile devices.

Wilmott, CEO of casino company Penn National Gaming, said the industry’s relations with the government had become even more important with the advent of sports betting. A bill seeking federal sports betting control is now in the Senate.

Wilmott said that during his tenure and that of his previous chairman, the profile of AGA membership had changed and it had broadened as a result of work headed by CEO Bill Miller and his predecessor.

He was speaking to members at the conclusion of the 2019 G2E trade show that had attracted 30,000 gaming professionals to Las Vegas.
