International Game Technology PLC announced that it has expanded its sports betting footprint in Mississippi with the deployment of IGT’s PlaySports™ technology at Treasure Bay Casino and Hotel in Biloxi. Under the terms of the agreement, Treasure Bay converted its former retail sportsbook platform to the proven IGT PlaySports solution, including on-premise mobile technology, and IGT’s PlaySports trading advisory services.
“Converting to IGT’s high-performing PlaySports technology allows Treasure Bay Casino and Hotel to enhance our current sportsbook offering and engage players with new avenues for betting,” said Jeff Prusinowski, Treasure Bay Casino and Hotel Biloxi, MS., Corporate Vice President of Operations. “The addition of on-premise mobile betting provides superior player convenience, enabling patrons to place wagers from almost anywhere within our casino property, and establishes a first-rate platform from which to launch statewide mobile sports betting should it be legalized. We’re excited to partner with IGT PlaySports for the next generation of our sportsbook.”
“The flexibility and high performance of IGT PlaySports’ proven platform, hardware and tailored services allows Treasure Bay Casino and Hotel to grow its sportsbook operations with confidence,” said Joe Asher, IGT President of Sports Betting. “We expect that the casino will maximize the potential of its sports betting offering and benefit from IGT PlaySports’ vast experience and leadership in the U.S. sports betting market.”
