Sports betting at Prairie Meadows in Altoona, Iowa will go mobile before the August 15 date when those in the state will officially be able to place bets with in-state operators.

*100% signup bonus all deposits up to $1500
*Fastest payouts
*Credit cards, gift cards, bitcoin, bank wires all accepted
*Accessible all states
*Build your own sportsbook option

In order to place bets online, one must first register in-person at the casino.  Residents and visitors alike will can place sports bets in state provided they register in-person first and wager on games within the state's borders.

From the Des Moines Register:

There are no mandatory mobile player wagering limits in Iowa's law, other than what might be set by a sportsbook, Ohorilko said. However, mobile apps must provide an "easy and accessible way" for customers to set deposit, wager or time limits.

"Once a player has established a limit, if they wanted to change it, the rules require a waiting period," he said. The idea, then, is that players who win or lose at an accelerated rate will not be immediately able to make an outsized, impulsive course-correction if they've lost wagers or place massive follow-up bets if they've found themselves on a hot streak.

In-game propositions are prohibited on Iowa teams or those teams playing against them.

Gamblers must be 21 or older.

Altoona is just 20 minutes outside of Des Moines.
