International Game Technology (IGT) has issued progress update on the newly legalized US sports betting space, specifically in relation to its PlaySports solution which is now active across nine out of the 13 states to go legal, with a footprint spanning more than 30 sports betting venues.
Those states comprise Indiana, Iowa, New York, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Mississippi, Rhode Island, New Jersey and Nevada.
In its update, the firm also confirmed that it has executed sports betting agreements with customers in Oregon, Arkansas and Illinois in anticipation of PlaySports solution rollouts in those states.
In addition to enabling over-the-counter retail sports betting in nine states, IGT now has more than 150 self-service IGT PlaySports kiosks deployed in sportsbooks around the US and is powering mobile sports wagering in Nevada, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Mississippi, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
“We put in the work to ensure that our IGT PlaySports solution was market-ready the day that PASPA was repealed – we hit the ground running last summer and never looked back,” said Enrico Drago, IGT PlayDigital Senior Vice President. “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.”
Nick Khin, the firm’s Chief Commercial Officer, Gaming, added: “IGT is quickly penetrating the legal US sports betting market with our PlaySports platform and enabling many of our customers to create new opportunities for growth and player engagement.”
