Golden Nugget Biloxi to open retail DraftKings Sportsbook

November 28, 2023

Set to open in January 2024, the upcoming retail sportsbook area at Golden Nugget Biloxi will feature DraftKings Sportsbook kiosks and betting windows.

Golden Nugget Biloxi, a 700+ room casino resort in the Gulf of Mexico, recently underwent a $100m renovation. Following on from this renovation the casino resort has announced plans to open a new retail sportsbook area in January of next year, with DraftKings Sportsbook to become the retail sportsbook featured in the new space. 

Currently, Golden Nugget Biloxi’s retail sportsbook is powered by DraftKings technology and products, with many features overlapping with the DraftKings Sportsbook app. Examples include Michael Patrick’s Sports Bar & Grill Sportsbook and kiosks, which currently use the company’s tech to operate its back-end sports betting services. 

With the renovated retail sportsbook area, which will be created using a part of the location's former buffet, Golden Nugget Biloxi guests will be able to utilize 17 live betting kiosks and five betting windows. There is also set to be a viewing area with three video walls comprised of high-tech LED screens. 

On the upcoming retail sportsbook, General Manager of Golden Nugget Casino Biloxi Chett Harrison said, “Our team is proud to announce the addition of the DraftKings Sportsbook at Golden Nugget Casino Biloxi. 

“Together with the leadership team at DraftKings, we are creating an amenity that patrons can enjoy, while offering sports fans an unparalleled sports betting experience at one of the top entertainment destinations in Mississippi.” 

“The Golden Nugget Casino Biloxi is known for providing customers with a luxurious entertainment experience,” said DraftKings Sr. Director of Retail Sportsbook Operations Michael Kibort. “We look forward to opening the doors to the newest addition to the property with a state-of-the-art retail sportsbook.” 

Sportsbook services will remain open to guests during the construction of the DraftKings Sportsbook space at the current Sportsbook and kiosks.
