JACK Cleveland Casino and JACK Thistledown Racino unveil betJACK Sportsbooks in preparation for live betting on January 1, 2023
Today, JACK Entertainment unveiled its betJACK Sportsbooks at JACK Cleveland Casino and JACK Thistledown Racino as the Ohio-based gaming company prepares to usher in a new era of entertainment with the launch of sports betting on January 1, 2023. The betJACK Sportsbook is another addition to JACK Entertainment’s sports betting portfolio, joining the company’s betJACK mobile platform, which currently functions as a free-to-play app and will transition to real money come the new year.
Carefully constructed with sports enthusiasts in mind, the spaces have been thoughtfully designed to match the passion and energy of Ohio Sports fans with all the amenities found in a Las Vegas sportsbook. Large video walls will feature the week’s biggest sporting events as additional TVs line the sportsbooks’ walls for the ultimate viewing experience. Odds boards, betting windows staffed with knowledgeable team members, and self-service betting kiosks will allow guests to make their picks and place their wagers conveniently. The sportsbooks are adjacent to the gaming floors, building on both properties’ already exciting entertainment options. The opening of the sportsbooks marks the completion of a $100 million capital investment plan consisting of renovations and improvements to both JACK locations.
“We are excited to debut our state-of-the-art sportsbooks, which will offer unparalleled experiences to Northeast Ohio and quickly will become fan-favorite destinations to watch all the action,” said Brian Eby, President of JACK Entertainment. “We owe it to our fellow Ohio sports fans to deliver something great, and we are confident they will not be disappointed. Our sportsbooks at JACK Cleveland Casino and JACK Thistledown Racino will set the standard in Ohio.”
Designed with rich blues and dark wood details, the modern and inviting spaces have been built to provide a great experience for guests to place a bet and comfortably enjoy the game with friends and fellow sports fans. A variety of seating options are offered, from theater-style recliners featuring phone charging outlets to casual high-top and low-top seating, as well as intimate banquette-style booths. At JACK Cleveland Casino, guests can get in on even more action as a 12-seat video poker bar, and 9-game table game pit is located within the book. The sleek designs and comfortable settings integrate seamlessly with the betJACK app to give Ohioans convenient and entertaining ways to interact with their favorite teams, sports, and events.
While guests cannot place bets until the New Year, the sportsbooks will be open to enjoy beginning Wednesday, November 23, and will be the place in town to catch all the big games during the holiday season. Both betJACK sportsbooks and the betJACK app will be open to officially take bets beginning at 12:01 a.m. on January 1, 2023.
