Sports and markets available: Just launched!

Ameristar Casino Hotel sportsbook has been launched with an offer of 11 different sports. Taking into account that the sportsbook has been put in place just a couple of days ago, this is fair range of sports on offer, with the tendency that the list is going to get increased over time. In compare to bookmakers in other states, Ameristar Casino Hotel sportsbook doesn’t lack the options for betting on different sports. The current list of available sports is presented below:

  • Football
  • Basketball
  • Hockey
  • Soccer
  • Baseball
  • Golf
  • Tennis
  • Auto racing
  • Cycling
  • Boxing
  • UFC

Ameristar Casino Hotel sportsbook also covers a very good range of betting markets available since the players can find parlays, straight bets, spread bets, round-robin, match-ups or futures. In-play betting is also available, however, prop bets haven’t been launched yet.

The bookmaker was determined to prepare and launch the sportsbook before the start of the football season, which they succeeded. Punters can find a wide range of tournaments and events on offer, from the most popular ones in the US or internationally, to lower leagues and less reputable tournaments in different sports.

Odds & Limits

Since Ameristar Casino Hotel operates as a retail sportsbook at this moment, we still didn’t have the chance to visit Amerisports Bar & Grill and take a look into the offered odds. However, what we have heard from other players, the odds are pretty competitive to the ones offered by the bookmakers in other states. We are definitely looking forward to experience sports betting here and share the impressions with you.

As we already said, Ameristar Casino Hotel doesn’t operate as an online sportsbook thus we cannot check the odds online or track the changes. So, if you want to try out this sportsbook, you should head to Amerisports Bar & Grill and opening hours are listed below:

  • Monday to Thursday: 11AM – 11PM
  • Friday: 11AM – 2AM
  • Saturday: 9AM – 2AM
  • Sunday: 9AM – 11PM

Available Promotions & Ameristar Casino Council Bluffs Promo Code

This sportsbook still hasn’t announced any promotions or welcome offers, however, players can expect some news soon. We have a good reason to believe that promotions are going to be generous since they are already being offered to new and existing casino players. The diversity of different promos is very broad for casino players as they can enjoy giveaways, money multipliers or free play money, besides the welcome offer that can currently go up to $500 of Free play money. Therefore, stay tuned as we can expect some activity in this area very soon, especially since the competitors are going to launch their sportsbooks as well. What we know is that there will definitely be an Ameristar Promo Code to use in order to get the online offers for both casino and sportsbook.

Ameristar Casino Council Bluffs Preview: Additional Features

Live Streaming

Players can enjoy great facilities at newly renovated Amerisports Bar & Grill which includes the capacity of more than 500 comfortable seats and the possibility to watch live broadcasts of a number of games. Currently, players cannot access online live streaming since Ameristar Casino Hotel sportsbook operates as a retail sportsbook at the moment. On the other hand, they can enjoy live broadcasts in the Amerisports Bar & Grill which is equipped with 50 HDTVs and at the same time have some snacks or grab a drink.

Mobile Application: Soon Available

At present time, the mobile app is not available for Ameristar Casino Hotel sportsbook players and it won’t be launched before mid-2020 according to Paul Czak, the casino’s general manager. There are a couple of good reasons behind this decision, and the first one is that Ameristar’s parent company, Penn National Gaming Inc. wants to develop their own sportsbook mobile application. That app could be used further in other states who have regulated sports betting.

Another fact which has a huge impact on the launch of the mobile app is the fact that players need to register their account at a casino in person before being able to place wagers via mobile apps. Although mobile betting is one of the integral parts of wagering experience, the law in Iowa states that players need to physically open an account with a valid ID which proves that the customer is 21 years old or more. Although you are still unable to create an account online just by using a mobile app, this process won’t take you more than 10 minutes, however, it requires your physical presence. Punters will be able to enjoy the full mobile experience when registering an account as well from the 1st of January 2021 when you won’t be required to visit the casino. The fact that none of Iowa neighbors have legalized sports betting, this won’t have a negative impact in terms of losing players due to a bit complicated sign-up process. Moving the registration process online will facilitate the possibility of offering welcome bonuses for the players that are going to register by using the mobile app.

Final Thoughts: A Big Player on IOWA

Ameristar Casino Hotel sportsbook is just one of three launched sportsbooks in the State of Iowa and therefore it can be pretty attractive to all kinds of players. Its newly renovated Amerisports Bar & Grill provides great experience thanks to the comfortable space and six sports wagering terminals. Punters can also enjoy live broadcasts of the most popular and exciting events. The variety of sports offered by this bookmaker is pretty respectable and it has enough space for the expansion in the near future. You won’t be shortened on the offer for the most popular national and international events and tournaments, as well as for the less popular ones. Different betting markets give you enough space of choosing your perfect wager and the odds are on par with the similar bookmakers in other states.

There are also a couple of aspects of improvement, and the first one is the availability of the mobile application. Players will need to wait for it for almost a year, but it seems that hard effort is going to be invested in its development, so we can expect to get very positive experience by using this app. Also, there are no promotions currently, but since the sportsbook has started operating just a couple of days ago, we can expect some promos soon which should be similar to casino ones that are currently in place. Although prop bets are still not available, customers will be able to find them on offer very soon, as per the announcements.

All in all, taking into account that Ameristar Casino Hotel sportsbook is a new one on the market it has the potential to become the leading sportsbook in the state. Although there are some downsides that need to be worked on, the bookmaker has already put some effort into improving the overall betting experience to its players.
