Baldini's Casino selects USBookmaking to manage race and sportsbook

25 August 2017

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Baldini's Casino, located in Sparks, Nevada, received approval today from the Nevada Gaming Commission to have USBookmaking manage its race and sportsbook. The changeover will take place beginning 25 August. Baldini's sportsbook was previously operated by Station Casinos.

"We are thrilled to start offering improved sportsbook odds and one of the most expansive betting menus, not only in the Reno-Sparks area, but also in the state of Nevada," said Craig Soper, general manager at Baldini's Casino. "The public will quickly realize that the only place to bet sports is at Baldini's."

USBookmaking is the newest venture for the operators of USFantasy Sports, who have made history in the last year by being the only legal daily fantasy sports platform in Nevada. The new Baldini's race and sportsbook will offer:
  • Improved Odds on Straight Bets (-108 vs. -110).
  • Improved Odds on Total Bets (Over/Under) (-108 vs. -110).
  • Improved Sports Book Odds in Reno-Sparks.
  • Improved "Off the Board" Parlay Payouts (4 Teams pay 12.7 to 1 vs. 11 to 1).
  • No Spread Parlay Cards.
  • Large selection of sports pari-mutuel props paying out as high as 96% (These payouts are not customarily found in any Nevada sportsbooks).
  • Improved returns on Future Bets.
USBookmaking will also feature an extensive menu of daily fantasy sports and pari-mutuel props in football, basketball, hockey, soccer, NASCAR, golf, baseball, Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), boxing and much more at Baldini's.

In addition to offering improved odds, Baldini's will open a race book in November and will offer live racing from all major U.S. tracks. It will feature an expanded track menu of thoroughbreds, greyhounds and harness racing. Opening in time for the Breeder's Cup, the race book will feature a liberal comp system.

"We are eager to complement our successful USFantasy Sports business that we created a year ago, with the opening of the race and sports book at Baldini's," said Vic Salerno, president of USBookmaking Race & Sports Book. "We look forward to offering an incredible variety of betting propositions and generous payouts not commonly found in the sports betting industry."

In an effort to appeal to more audiences and improve accessibility, USFantasy Sports will launch a mobile sports fantasy app that will include pari-mutuel sports props during the 2017 football season. USBookmaking will follow later this year with a traditional mobile sports betting app.
