The Iowa Caucus is Monday February 3, a day after the Super Bowl.  The state will see a significant number of visitors this weekend, a large number of which will want to place Super Bowl bets on the Iowa sportsbook apps.  Few will be able to.  They'll have to trek to a casino to register in person.  There are of course alternatives.  BetOnline, for example, is offering up to $1000 signup bonus and probably will have more Super Bowl prop offerings than any of the Iowa books.

*50% signup bonus up to $1000
*Huge menu of eSports betting options including outrights
*Available most US states (NJ prohibited)
*Watch for top Bitcoin bonuses
*True dime line in Baseball up to -170
*$55 minimum to open account
*Highest credit card acceptance rate
*In business since 1999

While not a spectator event, the Iowa Caucus will attract representatives from just about every news media outlet nationwide, including local news affiliates from coast to coast.  There should also be a significant number of reporters from worldwide media.

The Iowa Events Center in Des Moines will start filling up Friday, Jan. 31, 2020 at 6 a.m. It will remain in frenzied mode until the media leaves town after the Iowa Caucus is over on Feb. 3.

Des Moines itself does not have a casino in which to register for a mobile wagering account.  The nearest casino is Prairie Meadows, a whole 22 minutes or two hours when one calculates a roundtrip visit, rush hour traffic and the actual process of parking, entering the casino and registering, not to mention most folks won't have a car so that's an expensive Uber ride.

Catch Des Moines, the Greater Des Moines Convention and Visitors Bureau, predicts the 2020 Iowa caucuses will generate $11.3 million in economic impact for the city in the week leading up to the caucus.

Already the state is losing out. The economic impact and exposure are felt long before the caucuses, with high profile events such as the Polk County Steak Fry, the Liberty and Justice Celebration Dinner, the Iowa State Fair and several debates and countless candidate events bringing in tens of thousands of visitors to Greater Des Moines in the year leading up to the Iowa caucus.
