23 March 2022

(PRESS RELEASE) -- After announcing their collaboration two years ago and opening a temporary retail sportsbook at DraftKings at Casino Queen, located at 200 South Front St. along the Mississippi River, DraftKings and CQ Holding Company, Inc. today announced that they will officially unveil a new 6,000-square-foot state-of-the-art permanent retail sportsbook on Tuesday, 29 March, at DraftKings at Casino Queen. The premier sports betting facility will provide a unique sports betting and viewing experience with a 60-foot video wall, dozens of high-definition televisions, a VIP area and more than 30 betting kiosks.

“With this comprehensive renovation, we are introducing a new era of sports betting, sports viewing and overall entertainment at DraftKings at Casino Queen,” said Terry Downey, president and CEO of CQ Holding Company, Inc. “Our relationship with DraftKings has allowed us to create an all-encompassing, state-of-the-art space that will continue to add to Illinois’ excitement for sports wagering.”

The cutting-edge DraftKings at Casino Queen Sportsbook will be located steps away from the casino floor and offer a gaming destination that is unparalleled in the region. Sports enthusiasts will be able to watch live action across 31 oversized high-definition TVs and a 60-foot video board. The DraftKings at Casino Queen Sportsbook will also give players the opportunity to place wagers on a variety of betting markets across professional and collegiate sports via 38 kiosks and five betting windows, complete with the latest sports wagering technology. Finally, a variety of new plush, lounge-style seating options, private booths, stadium seating and VIP areas will provide optimal comfort for sports fans looking to catch their favorite events.

“It’s exciting to see our shared vision of bringing DraftKings’ innovative mobile app to life with an incredible in-person experience at the new DraftKings at Casino Queen Sportsbook,” said Michael Kibort, Sr. Director, Retail Sportsbooks at DraftKings. “Through the amazing support of, and collaboration with, Casino Queen, we have created a premier destination for guests to enjoy for years to come.”

Guests may also enjoy a new dining and drinking experience within the DraftKings at Casino Queen Sportsbook. The custom-designed bar will offer contemporary elements with industrial details. Elevated game day-inspired dishes and American fare line the menu, with shareable appetizers, specialty burgers, hand-tossed pizzas, sandwiches, salads, entrees and desserts.

A sampling of the next-level tailgate cuisine to be offered will include the 20-oz. BBQ pork steak, with mac and cheese, crispy brussels sprouts and barbecue sauce; St. Louis hot salami, made with salami, white queso, spicy mustard and giardiniera on a french roll; and a pub burger sliders made with Angus beef, fried pickles, cheese sauce and grilled onions.

To bring this dynamic vision to life, DraftKings at Casino Queen partnered with JCJ Architecture, a nationally recognized planning, architecture and interior design leader. JCJ has led hundreds of gaming and hospitality projects across the United States and internationally.
