The Belmont Stakes may be some time away, but the Mohegan Sun FanDuel Sportsbook in Connecticut is already prepared to welcome true horse racing fans. The 11,000-square-foot property will most likely be packed as bettors flock to place their flutters on June 11, 2022.
Belmont Stakes to Take Central Place in Mohegan Sun Sportsbook
The 154th running of the event will be broadcast directly on the 140-foot video wall on-site the property and will offer fans the chance to place their wagers. It’s one of the most highly-anticipated horse racing events, part of the Triple Crown and as such, it will be an excellent opportunity for sports bettors.
Mohegan Sun FanDuel Sportsbook is celebrating this with a number of small promotional tweaks. The race will span 1.5 miles and will feature the Kentucky Derby winner Rich Strike. There will be a $15 Belmont Jewels promo available with the festivities starting at 10:00 am on-site at the venue. For those looking for insight into the race, they will be quite happy to know that Michael “Mut” Mutnansky, a legendary handicapper, will be in attendance and chatting about which horse has a decent chance of making it.
The Belmont Special Alive for Five promotion and the viewing party will be available to individuals who are 21 or older. There will be a special contest that will enable Momentum members to pay a $10 entry fee and win a minimum guaranteed jackpot of $2,500. Guests will be invited to pick the winning horses of five designated races as well.
If someone guesses the five winners in all five races, they will be declared the winner and bag even more prize rewards! Anyone who wagers at least $50 on the Belmont Stakes specifically, can expect to get a free T-shirt. But that’s not all, because the Belmont Stakes festivities and betting bonanza will be followed with a UFC 275 night and music brought on by DJ Jayne.
The Mohegan Sun FanDuel Sportsbook offers 222 luxury seats, 39 self-serving kiosks, and the 140-foot-wide wall which is the beating heart of the sportsbook.
