After partnering with slot route operator AG Trucano, FSB claims it has “taken another step forward” in realising its ambitions in the North American market.
The partnership will see FSB’s self-service betting kiosks disseminated across 11 AGT-operated casinos in Deadwood, South Dakota, pending licence approval.
In addition, the sports betting and igaming platform provider’s over-the-counter EPOS solution will be supported by two of the 11 casinos as the company looks to expand globally.
FSB SSBT kiosks
AGT’s founder and consultant, Mike Trucano, stated: “It’s been a pleasure working with FSB’s business development manager, Lisa Waterfield and Mike on this agreement.
“We’ve been hugely impressed by their retail solution and look forward to distributing the FSB SSBT kiosks across 11 of our casinos.”
This new initiative for FSB comes after the addition of Mike Van Ermen, vice president of pre-sales, and Bob Akeret, vice president of operations, from Circa Sports and Resorts Digital Gaming, respectively, to their North American executive team earlier this year.
“This is a tremendous step forward for FSB as we continue to make progress in the North American market. AG Trucano has an outstanding reputation in South Dakota and we’re delighted to be building this partnership with them” Ermen explained.
“This deal is testament to the strength of our localised retail offering and the huge progress that FSB has made in 2021 in the US and globally. It’s great to see our momentum continuing.”
Single retail sportsbook
AGT has been operating in South Dakota since the state legalised gambling in 1989, and the company now manages over 600 slot machines in Deadwood. They will operate a single retail sportsbook throughout their 11 casinos as part of this cooperation.
Aces Full Inc (AG Trucano) president and owner Bart Hamm added: “With the legalisation of sports betting in the city of Deadwood in 2020, we were keen to find a technically advanced US based team who would help us operate a retail sportsbook in our properties.
“FSB has a unique retail offering that gives us control and flexibility while allowing us to offer our patrons a sensational sports betting experience.”
