Online Betting to Complement Retail Sportsbook
The launch of online wagering through the Wind Creek casino platform is coming in the footsteps of the recent opening of the retail sportsbook at the tribal casino by both partners. Last month, Wind Creek Hospitality and Betfred opened the retail location in the space of former Buddy V’s Ristorante at the property.
