International Game Technology partners with Kalispel Casino in WA

It has been announced today that leading online gaming and betting provider, International Game Technology, has agreed a new partnership deal with Kalispel Casino operator the Kalispel Tribe of Indians in Washington state.

The deal, a multi-year partnership, will see the provider link-up with Kalispel Tribal Economic Authority to provide its sports betting technology and trading advisory services to the new retail sportsbook that is scheduled to open shortly.

Kalispel Casino is a popular casino establishment complex based in Cusick, a small town in Pend Oreille County, Washington that provides amenities and facilities to local residents and tourists, including Kalispel Market, RV resort, dining options and a casino floor featuring top slots games such as Road Trip, Milk Money, 5 Dragons, 88 Fortunes, Aztec Temple and Black Widow among others.

This partnership is the second on record between Kalispel Tribe of Indians and International Game Technology for the facilitation of sports betting deployment via retail locations using the innovative PlaySports technology.

PlaySports is a sophisticated platform for modern sports betting that is flexible and has a quick time to market turnover. The platform is player focused and provides a number of beneficial perks and features for both operators and sports fans alike, with high performing hardware and a model designed specifically for sports markets in the United States.

Last year, the two organisations joined forces at the Northern Quest Resort and Casino to launch sports betting facilities at the Turf Club Sportsbook in in Airway Heights Washington.

According to reports, the link-up between International Game Technology and Kalispel Casino was in-part driven by the success and popularity of the amenities at Northern Quest Resort and Casino and is designed to build on the momentum of the foundations already laid within the state.

Additionally, this latest collaboration will bolster the ‘long standing’ partnership between the provider and operator and will increase customer engagement long-term.

Kevin Zenishek of Northern Quest Resort and Casino and Kalispel Casino commented on the link up with IGT:

We’re excited to roll out sports betting for our guests at Kalispel Casino.

It has already proven to be a fantastic new amenity at Northern Quest and we know it will be popular at our Kalispel Casino as well.

Joe Asher of International Game Technology also shared comments on providing the operator with its turnkey sports betting platform:

IGT is pleased to build on our sports betting momentum in Washington State and bolster our long-standing partnership with the Kalispel Tribe of Indians by powering sports betting at Kalispel Casino.

We look forward to bringing a great sports betting experience to the Kalispel Casino so that our long-time partner can further engage its customers.
