First off, online sports betting is currently available in Iowa courtesy of a few dozen offshore sportsbooks.  They will soon be joined by in-state operated betting sites.

Many of these soon-to-open books were hoping to have an edge over the offshore gambling companies by offering apps, but they hit a roadblock in this regard, at least as it pertains to the iPhone.

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.

The Grand Falls Casino & Golf Resort in Lynn County is planning an $8 million expansion that will free up space for its new sportsbook, as well as add 60 hotel rooms, documents show.

The Grand Falls establishment wants to start work on the sports book immediately in order to be up and running for football.  The casino will covert its existing show lounge into a sports betting parlor, moving live entertainers elsewhere.

A new startup Bet.Works will be the Grand Falls & Casino sportsbook partner, provided they are granted permission to do so.  Parent company Elite Casino Resorts wants to use Bet.Works in its two other properties, one in Davenport and another in Riverside just outside of Iowa City.

Bet.Works’ just recently  BGLI-19 AND GLI-33 certification to operate a sportsbook in the US.

Its Founder/CEO David Wang said: “We are pleased to have completed this part of our business operation. GLI is the global leader in authentication of gaming technologies and it was a pleasure to work with them through this process.

“This GLI certification verifies that Bet.Works™ complies with GLI-19 and GLI-33 technical standards, thus allowing Bet.Works™ to pursue second phase product approvals with regulatory licensing jurisdictions that require their own proprietary product certification or jurisdictional / internal lab testing.

“We feel strongly that acquiring this certification will expedite our licensing process in many jurisdictions that will be legalizing sports betting in the United States and look forward to working with business partners and Regulators in that regard.”

Bet.Works has closely aligned itself with TheScore, a popular live scoring and news app the publicly trades on the TSX Venture Exchange in Toronto.

TheScore CEO John Levy has previously stated that the Bet.Works platform is “unlike any technology we have ever seen.”

“It truly addresses the multi-state rollout that is in the plans for theScore and solves the scaling concerns we have had with many of the incumbent suppliers. David and his team truly understand and can deliver up to the strict quality standards theScore users are accustomed to.”

Dr. Laila Mintas left her role as the US deputy president for Sportradar to chair Bet.Works advisory board.

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.
