The Harrah's and Horseshoe Council Bluffs casino in Iowa has launched their new sportsbook, which they've appropriately named "The Book".
The room will allow punters to put in bets on various sporting events from around the world, and the casino will be heavily promoting it by inviting celebrities and athletes to stop by to promote. The book will be powered by Scientific Games, whose OpenSports platform will provide the interface for placing bets and getting slips.
