Gaming technology and services provider IGT is cruising towards making its presence in all states which have launched and legalized sports betting following the US Supreme Court’s order last year.
Currently, 13 states have legalized sports betting; however, pending draft regulations, only 11 states have launched a sports betting operation. Last month, Iowa became the 11th US state to launch sports gambling.
Of the 13 states that have legalized sports betting, nine of them are using IGT’s B2B sports betting technology, the company claims. IGT has also reported that their exclusive PlaySports solution is now installed at over 30 different venues.
While Oregon and Arkansas are about to launch sports betting operations, IGT has already struck a deal to launch its sports gambling solution.
The company boasts of having 150 self-service kiosks in sportsbooks in the country. IGT is also facilitating mobile sports wagering in Nevada, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Mississippi, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia.
Said Enrico Drago, IGT PlayDigital senior vice president said: “Since the law was changed we hit the ground running last summer and never looked back. There is no better representation of the flexibility and scalability of the IGT PlaySports platform than the diversity of customers and venues that are currently leveraging it to power their sportsbooks.”
