The United States now has four official sports betting states. Since the Supreme Court informed individual states, they could make the ultimate decision on whether sports betting is legal or not, Delaware, New Jersey, and Mississippi joined Nevada in okaying the activity.

Sports betting is being embraced by some, while others are still making up their minds whether to legalise it or not. While those in charge are debating sports betting’s merits, one American restaurant is ready to jump firmly on board.
Buffalo wings and sports gambling
United States’ restaurant chain Buffalo Wild Wings has established a reputation as the go-to venue to watch sports and dine. There are currently over 1,200 Buffalo Wild Wings in the U.S. and each contains televisions showing the latest sporting event. From daily baseball and weekly American football games to major events like the World Cup and UFC, sports fans descend on Buffalo Wild Wings for food and fun.
Now, Buffalo Wild Wings could soon become the place Americans go to place sports bets. Yes, the food chain is interested in becoming a part of the American sports betting revolution. So, how would one of America’s best-known restaurants become a go-to gambling location?
American’s premier sports betting location
Daily fantasy sports company DraftKings became the first company to have an active sports book in New Jersey. The DFS giant joined the world of bookies and now takes sports bets in the Garden State.
DraftKings hopes to partner with Buffalo Wild Wings to bring together sports, food, and betting to the American masses. At least those masses in states that approve the activity. DraftKings and Buffalo Wild Wings will most likely have a similar set up to that of European betting giant William Hill and PTs in Nevada.
Buffalo Wild Wings would have a DraftKings kiosk inside its locations in which agents of the company would be located. There, diners could place their sports wagers. Unlike the deal currently involving William Hill and PTs, DraftKings and Buffalo Wild Wings would be in states across the country.
According to ESPN, Buffalo Wild Wings is the largest sports bar in America. The combination of legalised betting and restaurant locations would give people inside the U.S. an unprecedented opportunity to bet on sports.
The power of Buffalo Wild Wings
Buffalo Wild Wings changed the landscape of sports and dining. Established in 1982, the company has grown to be THE place for fans to go for sports. With states now legalising sports betting, the same could happen with gambling.
In recent years, Buffalo Wild Wings has seen its popularity decline slightly. Sales have decreased as the company cited millennials lack of interest in dining out. With fewer people eating out, the company’s main revenue maker, alcohol, has taken a massive hit. Buffalo Wild Wings hopes the addition of sports betting can drive customers back to its restaurants and open up a new era of gaming in the U.S.
