Ameristar East Chicago to launch sports betting in September

19 August 2019

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Penn National Gaming, Inc. announced today that Ameristar Casino East Chicago expects to begin offering sports betting at Ameristar East Chicago on 1 September, subject to any required regulatory approvals.

“Penn National looks forward to opening a sports book and providing our customers with another great amenity at Ameristar Casino East Chicago,” said Timothy J. Wilmott, Chief Executive Officer for the Company. “Indiana will soon become the 12th state to legalize sports betting following the repeal of the federal ban last year, and our patrons in Northwest Indiana can expect an incredible sports wagering experience at our facility.”

Penn National will offer a state-of-the-art sports betting experience at Ameristar Casino East Chicago, including sports betting kiosks and ticket writer stations that will support thousands of sports betting options for its customers. The company has developed a new sportsbook conveniently located near the Stadium Sports Bar and Grill and main entrance to the property. The new betting counter and large odds boards create an environment where customers can enjoy a first class wagering experience in close proximity to the numerous televisions where they can enjoy sports action from across the country and around the world.

“Our customers are very excited to start wagering on sports,” said Matt Schuffert, General Manager at Ameristar Casino East Chicago. “The passion for Indiana and Illinois sports teams runs deep in this region, and we look forward to becoming a destination for fans all year-round.”

Celebrating the first wagers at Ameristar East Chicago will be a pair of Chicago Bears legends in Mike Ditka and Devin Hester. In addition to being a Pro Bowler with the Bears, Ditka coached Chicago to its only Super Bowl championship during the 1985-86 season, while Hester was a three-time First Team All-Pro who also holds the NFL record for most kicks returned for touchdowns in a career.
