Dubuque, IA Welcomes Sports Betting
Hundreds came to welcome fan-favorite Antonio Freeman to Dubuque’s Diamond Jo Casino for the grand opening. Banking on the luck his number 86 jersey brought him during his football career, the former Packer wide receiver placed an $86 ceremonial first bet that the Green Bay Packers score more than 21.5 points in their game against the Chicago Bears.
In addition to the initial $45,000 licensing fee, Iowa casinos will pay a $10,000 annual renewal fee with Iowa taxing revenues at 6.75% in order to offer sports betting.
A popular fantasy sports provider, FanDuel moved into sports betting following the recent Supreme Court ruling opening initial locations in Pennsylvania and New Jersey with locations in Iowa and Indiana quickly following.
