Larchwood, Iowa — Some changes are in store for Grand Falls Casino near Larchwood as they prepare to offer sports betting.
This week, Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds signed the bill into law legalizing betting on college and professional sports. If you are at least 21 years old you will be able to place a sports bets at any of the state’s 19 casinos or online if you go to a casino and register in person for that option. Now the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission — or IRGC — takes over, preparing the rules to carry out the law.
Sharon Haselhoff, the General Manager at Grand Falls tells us they are in the planning stages at this point, waiting on the rules from the IRGC.
She says some things are already planned.
According to Haselhoff, there will also be an online option.
She says they’re looking for a vendor to help them offer the online betting at this time. She says they’re excited about the new opportunities this will give them and their players.
