  • South Dakota kicked off in-person sports betting at Tin Lizzie Gaming Resort and Cadillac Jack’s Gaming Resort.
  • BetMGM opened its retail sportsbook at the casino.
  • BetMGM’s online app will be available for customers at the casino and hotel property.

South Dakota joined the party last week as it opened in-person sports betting at Tin Lizzie Gaming Resort and Cadillac Jack’s Gaming Resort in time for the NFL’s opening week of games.

BetMGM and Tin Lizzie Gaming Resort and Cadillac Jack’s Gaming Resort announced a partnership in late August for the sportsbook operator to open a retail sportsbook in the casino. The partnership also allows for South Dakota online sports betting within the casinos in Deadwood, South Dakota.

BetMGM Sports Betting Partnership Approved

The South Dakota state legislature legalized sports betting after voters approved the Deadwood Sports Betting Legalization Amendment on Nov. 3, 2020. The sports betting tax rate was set at 9% and sportsbook operators are only required to pay a $5,000 application fee, a $2,000 license fee for a full fiscal year and a $2,000 renewal fee.

Arizona and Washington both kicked off their sports betting programs on Sept. 9.

South Dakot Online Sports Betting Limited to Casino Property

The BetMGM online sportsbook app is only accessible within both Tin Lizzie Gaming Resort and Cadillac Jack’s Gaming Resort. The app complements the retail BetMGM sportsbook that includes kiosks and counter wagering at the casinos.

Caleb Arceneaux, Chief Executive Officer of Liv Hospitality, said in a release that “BetMGM is an outstanding organization that brings credibility to our new sports betting offerings. Visitors now have another reason to come to Deadwood, while enjoying the many other entertainment opportunities at our resorts.”

Deadwood currently has 10 full-casinos in its city limits.
