Buffalo Wild Wings wants to place a bet on sports gambling
Wings and wagers? Buffalo Wild Wings thinks they're a natural fit.
(CNN MONEY) – The sports bar chain, which has about 1,200 restaurants in all 50 states, said it is exploring the possibility of offering sports wagering now that the Supreme Court has opened the door for states to legalize sports betting.
“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,” a company spokesperson said Thursday. “We are actively exploring opportunities, including potential partners, as we evaluate the next steps for our brand.”
Three states — New Jersey, Delaware and Louisiana — have legalized sports gambling since the Supreme Court decision in May. Before the ruling, Nevada was the only state where it was legal to bet on sports.
Many other states are considering legislation that will allow for sports betting in the hopes of cashing in on what could be a multibillion dollar industry.
