On Thursday, September 9th, the Wind River Hotel & Casino officially opened the Buffalo Sportsbook. The Sportsbook welcomes the world of sports betting to the Wind River Reservation.

“We’ve created Buffalo Sportsbook to be the absolute best place around to watch the big game, with plenty of HD TVs, food and drink and loads of sports-betting action,” said Sean Ridgebear, Buffalo Sportsbook Manager. “We encourage sports fans to come check out our new Buffalo Sportsbook. Who’s ready for some football?!?”

Not only does the Sportsbook give you easy access to sports betting, but it’s also a place to view special sporting events that you may not get to see otherwise. On November 6th, the Sportsbook aired its first ESPN+ PPV event, UFC 268, featuring a highly anticipated rematch between Kamaru Usman & Colby Covington.

You can visit the Sportsbook and bet on any sports match happening pretty much anywhere. It’s not just what’s on the big screen. Placing your bet is as easy as visiting the kiosk and doing it yourself or having someone help you at the desk. Sportsbook employees will be happy to give assistance.

The kiosks are always open and make sports betting a breeze. Look through a list of current and future sporting events, choose your winners and place your bets. It will let you know exactly how much money you will take home if your picks win. As always, betting on the underdog gives you way more winnings if they pull through. The kiosk gives you all of this information and more!

Apart from regular sports betting, the Sportsbook will also be doing fun promotions throughout the year. Right now on Mondays at 5 pm during NFL games, you can win Cooler Cash.
