As of 12:00 PM on August 15th, sports betting in Iowa is NOW legal in the Hawkeye State. People can place wagers on pro and college games at all but one of the state-regulated casinos.

The William Hill Sports Book at the Isle Casino in Waterloo held a ribbon-cutting today & Baseball Hall-of-Famer Andre Dawson took part in the ceremony and place the first bet.

"The Hawk" took the University of Miami over Florida when they play next Saturday night.

Watch the ribbon cutting ceremony and Dawson's wager HERE.
