Fanduel Grand Opening With Antonio

Fanduel’s second sportsbook in the Midwest officially opened yesterday at the Diamond Jo Casino in Dubuque, and the very first bet was placed by former Green Bay Packer legendary wide receiver Antonio Freeman. The former all-pro bet $86…his jersey number… and took the Packers plus 21 over the Chicago Bears in the season opener for both teams tonight. Freeman predicts that the new Fanduel sportsbook will go over well in Dubuque. From the time Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds signed the sports betting bill into law, it took 93 days for the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission to establish regulations and Fanduel to construct and create space at the Diamond Jo for the new sportsbook. Fanduel representative Kevin Hennessy was impressed. State Senator Pam Jochum of Dubuque was part of the 2019 legislature that passed the sports betting bill, and she says it took a lot of work by a lot of people. Antonio Freeman will join Packer as well as Bear fans at the new Fanduel Sportsbook for a viewing party tonight.
