TYRE, N.Y. (WROC) — Del Lago Resort and Casino opened its new sports betting lounge Friday.
The 6,000 square foot Draftkings Sportsbook lounge features dozens of betting kiosks, a bar, and restaurant.
Six-time NFL Pro-Bowler Donovan McNabb was there for the opening and talked about how it was a unique opportunity for people.
“You’re are sitting and you’re watching sports, and that brings families together. That kind of brings a different mentality when it comes to different seasons if its basketball if its football, baseball, whatever sport it may be and to be involved and kind of have a hands-on experience I think its something special all across the country.” said six-time NFL Pro-Bowler Donovan McNabb.
The New York State’s Gaming Commission approved regulations for sports betting earlier this year. Right now you can only place bets on professional sports.
