American sports bar group Buffalo Wilds Wings is looking into the possibility of offering up sportsbetting at their series of restaurants across the United States, offering the wagers in jurisdictions when and where its been legalized.
The company confirmed their interest in a statement, revealing that they are investigating the possibilities, thinking that they could offer an integrated experience that would jive well with the dozens of screens and loud atmosphere that you see at the restaurants. The company would likely need to partner with casino partners in each individual state they operate, and the activity likely would run afoul of some more conservative states.
Thus far the states of New Jersey, Delaware, and Nevada have already legalized the activity, with more states such as West Virginia and others appearing likely to pass the measure soon. The United States opened up for sportsbetting after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled to overturn the ban on the wagers in May, following a legal challenge by the state of New Jersey.
In a statement Buffalo Wild Wings commented, revealing: "As the largest sports bar in America, we believe Buffalo Wild Wings is uniquely positioned to leverage sports gaming to enhance the restaurant experience for our guests. We are actively exploring opportunities, including potential partners, as we evaluate the next steps for our brand."
