Live Tucson sports betting fans can now bet here in Old Pueblo.
Next month Casino Del Sol will open SolSports for such betting at 5655 W. Valencia Road.
The new venue will be in the old Paradiso Lounge with 60 TVs, including giant flat screens, a full bar, food service and six live betting windows.
Self-service betting kiosks will also be located at the Casino of the Sun, 7406 S. Camino de Oeste.
This new addition is the result of expanded gambling legislation passed by Arizona lawmakers in April.
Desert Diamond casinos are also expected to offer these betting options this fall.
Casino Del Sol will serve as the bookmaker’s operator and bookmaker. OpenSports, a sports betting technology from Scientific Games, will serve as the primary platform powering SolSports.
“Our goal is to continue to complement our offerings, so we look forward to providing our customers with another great gaming experience with our new sportsbook,” said Kimberly Van Amburg, CEO of Casino Del Sol. “SolSports will provide the ultimate environment for guests to watch and bet on their favorite professional and college sporting events.”
The opening date for SolSports sports betting is tentatively scheduled for September, pending regulations from the Arizona Department of Gaming.
