SAN JUAN – The Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation and DraftKings recently announced they have agreed to a deal to expand their relationship and pave the way to offering an online and retail sports betting experience in Puerto Rico, subject to applicable licenses and regulatory approvals being obtained. The announcement comes following the launch of sports betting and iGaming at Foxwoods Casino Resort in Connecticut on Oct. 19, 2021.
The retail sportsbook will be located inside the Foxwoods El San Juan Casino and is expected to open in the coming weeks, pending receipt of applicable licenses and regulatory approvals. Once complete, the space will feature a massive video wall, bar and dining services, two over the counter ticket windows and six betting kiosks.
“We have made tremendous strides in the sports betting space in our relationship with DraftKings, who has continued to be a valuable partner, through our online and retail experiences in the state of Connecticut,” said Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation Chairman Rodney Butler. “As we expand our partnership with DraftKings to the beautiful island of Puerto Rico at the Foxwoods El San Juan Casino, we are confident that we will continue to create unforgettable memories for customers and sports fans alike.”
In January 2021, the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation and Foxwoods announced plans to reopen the iconic El San Juan Casino as the “Foxwoods El San Juan Casino.” The redevelopment of the luxurious casino destination included $137.5 million in resort enhancements, including the reopening of the renowned Tropicoro entertainment venue.
