Ameristar Casino in Council Bluffs is set to open its sportsbook soon.  Sports betting here will be in easy access to those across the river in Omaha, Nebraska (just a 10 minute drive).  Offshore (internationally licensed) sportsbooks are also accessible from this region.

*50% signup bonus up to $1000
*Available all US states
*Watch for top Bitcoin bonuses
*True dime line in Baseball up to -170
*$25 minimum to open account
*Highest credit card acceptance rate

Those looking to place bets on their mobile devices with in-state sportsbooks will need to register in person first.  This could prove especially inconvenient to those looking to place bets with Iowa sportsbooks while visiting the state.  That being said, those residing in Omaha should have little trouble setting up their betting accounts at Ameristar Casino

All sportsbooks operating from the state of Iowa must abide by specified rules that include no player or team props on in-state school sporting events including games that feature the Cylones or Hawkeyes.

Ameristar is owned and operated by Penn National, one of the nation's largest gambling firms.

The Ameristar Bar & Grill has been converted to the new sportsbook, with wagering kiosks located throughout the property.

“Iowa is poised to become the first midwestern state to offer sports wagering since the federal ban was repealed last year,” Penn National CEO Timothy Wilmott said. “We appreciate the diligence of the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission that will allow us to begin offering this great new amenity at Ameristar Casino Council Bluffs prior to the kickoff of football season.”
