International game technology has expanded its position in the US market as the company confirms it will support sports betting in
Coushatta Casino Resort
Under this agreement, IGT will provide PlaySports proven turnkey solution, including commercial consultancy services.
Jonathan Cernek, president of the Coushatta tribe of Louisiana, noted: “We are very excited to be one of the first Louisiana casinos to enter into a sports betting agreement, allowing us to offer our customers new types of gaming experience, backed by the reliable IGT sports betting solution.
"The IGT package solution, consisting of a leading sports betting platform and products, will allow us to quickly and easily implement a unique localized sports betting program."
Recalling Cernek's thoughts, Enrico Drago, Senior Vice President of IGT PlayDigital President says the partnership represents another "significant milestone" for IGT as the company continues to drive US sports betting.
He continued: "We are looking forward to helping the casino establish a best-in-class sports betting program by leveraging IGT's proven technology and services to extend the gaming experience for its customers."
The announcement follows ITG's second installation of Advantage CMS in Europe last month at Regency Casino Thessaloniki, which the company has hailed as a "key implementation".
The facility recently implemented the IGT casino management system, which gave it a package of compatible bonus system, content and convenience modules.
Also in June, IGT merged with Gaming Realms in a licensing agreement under which the company agreed to produce Slingo games based on some of the most powerful slot machine brands in the IGT game library.
