Sightline Payments goes live in Iowa with DraftKings Play+ launch

Sightline Payments has celebrated the sixth successful launch of its DraftKings Play+ programme, after the Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) operator debuted its mobile and online sportsbooks in Iowa. 

The DraftKings Play+ launch will allow bettors to deposit funds, transfer, and withdraw funds while placing bets at any of the state’s three Wild Rose casinos. 

After January 1, 2021, accessing mobile sports betting in Iowa will become significantly more convenient as customers over the age of 21 will no longer be required to register in-person.

Matt Kalish, President of DraftKings North America and co-founder stated: “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.” 

“We have worked diligently to perfect our sportsbook product since it launched in 2018, and starting today, we’re proud to offer Iowans a safe and responsible place to wager on sports – one that can be accessed conveniently from the palm of their hands.”

As it stands, Iowa state law requires bettors to finalise their DraftKings mobile and online sports betting registration in-person at a Wild Rose-DraftKings sportsbook in Clinton, Emmetsburg or Jefferson. After registering in-person, customers can bet via the Sportsbook mobile app and online site from anywhere in the state. 

Tom Timmons, President and COO of Wild Rose added: “We believe DraftKings is offering the best mobile app yet to Iowa sports betting enthusiasts.

“Since we opened the sportsbooks, we have been deluged with requests for this app. We are happy to offer it now, with the NCAA basketball tournament just around the corner.”
