Lakeside Hotel & Casino in Osceola, Iowa is set to launch its sportsbook by the start of this football season (2019).  Sports betting, via mobile devices and laptops, is currently only available to those in Iowa from gambling sites licensed outside the US. Iowa officials hope to launch in-state sports betting apps by the start of 2020.  In-person registration by those 21 years of age or older will be required in order to use the state-based apps.

“Our new sports book will provide the highest level of entertainment and customer service in Iowa,” said David Monroe, general manager for Lakeside Hotel & Casino. “We are excited to partner with William Hill and take the sports betting experience to the next level.”

The William Hill-operated sportsbook was slated to open on the lower level of the casino on Thursday, Aug. 15, 2019.


The new sportsbook will be visible as soon as guests step off the escalator and will feature fourteen 65-inch viewing monitors with 4K LCD displays and two 86-inch viewing monitors with 4K Ultra HD displays. Sports fans looking for comfortable places to watch the games and events with friends will be at home in this newly renovated space. The sports betting facility will be open seven days a week.

The grand opening celebration will kick off on August 15 at 11:30 a.m. CT with a ribbon-cutting & check presentation ceremony. Joseph Reynolds, a WWII veteran residing in Clarke County, will place the ceremonial first bet officially opening the sportsbook for wagering at 12:00 p.m. CT.

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.
