WEST MEMPHIS, Ark. – Southland Casino Racing has launched its brand new online sportsbook Betly, which will be the first online sportsbook available in Arkansas.
Mobile sports betting officially became legal on March 4, 2022, and Southland Casino is the first of three casinos in the state to offer online betting.
“The Betly online sportsbook will make it even easier for our customers, all Arkansas residents and visitors to the state to bet on their favorite teams,” said David Wolf, President and CEO of Southland Casino Racing. . “Many customers already use our Betly sports betting kiosks in Southland, so online sports betting will be a familiar and convenient extension of our sports betting experience.”
In 2021, Arkansas reported $1.2 million in tax revenue from in-person sports betting. With the addition of online services, these figures are expected to triple, which will have a major impact on the national and local economy.
The Betly online bookmaker is currently only available on PC and Mac browsers and is not yet available on mobile phones.
