DraftKings Sportsbook Has Officially Launched in Iowa
DraftKings Sportsbook, which has quickly emerged as an industry leader during the infancy period of United States legal online sports betting, is now live and taking bets in the state of Iowa.
Get in on the action with DraftKings Sportsbook and take advantage of up to $1,000 in risk-free bets by hitting it right here.
DraftKings Sportsbook has been positioned in Iowa since October when it partnered with Wild Rose Casino & Resort to power sportsbooks at three locations across the state.
Unlike other states that offer legal mobile sports betting, Iowa requires mobile sports bettors to complete the registration in-person at one of three Wild Rose-DraftKings locations. The three retail shops operate in Clinton, Emmetsburg and Jefferson. You can begin the registration process here.
“DraftKings has seen steady fan engagement in Iowa during the last few months at our three Wild Rose sportsbooks across the state, and we couldn’t be more excited to provide customers with our state-of-the-art mobile sports-betting platform,” said President and co-founder of DraftKings Matt Kalish.
How to Sign Up for DraftKings Sportsbook Iowa
Iowa’s sports betting laws require an additional layer to the sign up process that doesn’t exist in other states where online sports betting has gone legal. The state requires all users to register both online and in person at a casino affiliate through January 1, 2021. Still, it’s quick and easy to sign up and get started with DraftKings Sportsbook.
- Click right here to register.
- Once you have entered your information and have made your initial deposit, you are almost ready to get in on the action and take advantage of up to $1,000 in risk-free bets, odds boosts, and other promos.
- Here’s where the extra layer comes into play. In order to complete the registration process, new users must visit one of Iowa’s three Wild Rose Casino and Resort locations to finalize the process.
- Once you are present (with smartphone in hand) at any of the Jefferson, Emmetsburg, or Clinton locations, log into the DraftKings Sportsbook app. Geo-fencing will automatically complete the registration process. Again, once you sign up online using our links, this technology will finalize your registration without any additional action once you finalize the process at any of the three casino locations.
- Simply sign out of the app and sign back in to start betting on sports action and take advantage of all the perks offered by DraftKings Sportsbook.

Iowa Sports Betting History
Following a 2018 U.S. Supreme Court decision to repeal the national ban on sports betting, Iowa became the 11th state to permit sports wagering. Retail sportsbooks based at several Iowa casinos have been accepting wagers since sports betting officially went legal on Aug. 15.
In a unique wrinkle of Senate File 617, Iowa sports bettors who wish to wager through a mobile app are required to physically travel to its affiliated casino partner in order to verify their identity now through Dec. 31, 2020.
DraftKings Sportsbook’s entry into the state was announced last October when it partnered with Wild Rose Casino and Resort. DraftKings Sportsbook, which also enters Iowa’s legal online sports betting space through the Wild Rose partnership, currently operates retail sportsbooks at the casino’s three Iowa locations stationed in Jefferson, Emmetsburg, and Clinton.
