Washington’s ilani Casino Resort announced Thursday the opening of its newest sports watching and wagering amenity. The property is debuting its Stadium Sports Bar & Grill, which it calls “the ultimate venue for sports fans” and features the region’s largest video wall.
Kara Fox-LaRose, president and general manager of ilani, commented: “At ilani, we are excited to introduce sports wagering as an amenity to meet the varied interests of our valued guests. With the level of anticipation and enthusiasm for this amenity, ilani has invested in a new addition featuring a sportsbook and a new dining experience, The Stadium Sports Bar & Grill.”
By downloading the Listen EVERYWHERE app, fans can customize their audio experience and listen to their game of choice right from their cell phones. Additionally, The Stadium features “a comprehensive food and drink menu” to round out the experience.
The watching and wagering extend to the adjacent Betting Lounge, where sports fans can “relax in oversized comfort seating while enjoying The Stadium’s food and beverage specials and cheering on their favorite teams,” the casino said in a press release.
Casinos guests can make their sports wagers at the ilani sportsbook kiosks located next to The Stadium, and throughout the casino floor.
“Stay tuned for updates on the sportsbook’s grand opening celebration that sports fans won’t want to miss along with details that make ilani the place to be for the biggest football game on Monday nights,” a statement added.
The casino first announced a sportsbook agreement with sports betting services provider Kambi Group last month. The deal enables ilani, developed by the Cowlitz Tribe and Salishan-Mohegan, to provide a Kambi-powered on-property sportsbook to its patrons in the Pacific Northwest.
In addition to its sports betting amenity, the property also includes more than 100,000 square feet of gaming space with nearly 3,000 slots and 75 gaming tables; 18 different restaurants, bars, and retail outlets; and a 2,500-seat meeting and entertainment venue.
