Sports betting in person began today at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Sioux City.
State regulators approved the Casino's new sportsbook, last month it didn’t start taking its first bets on professional and college sports until today. Betting online or via app won’t be available until mid October. Sioux City State representative Jacob Bossman voted to legalize sports betting. He was at the Hard Rock today. Bossman says sports betting was happening already without any regulation.
