EXCHANGE PLACE, N.J., July 30, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- PointsBet, a premier global sportsbook operator, announced today that it has entered a multi-year partnership with Double Eagle Hotel and Casino, one of Colorado's leading casino and hotel destinations. The partnership will include the launch of both premium retail and mobile sportsbook operations in Colorado, pending legislative approval.
