International Game Technology (IGT) has announced the recent signing of a new agreement with Nevada-based company Circa Sports LLC. Under the terms of the agreement, IGT will use its PlaySports platform to drive the Circa Sports Colorado mobile sports betting app.
The news follows on from the announcement by Circa Sports earlier this year that it plans to launch its Colorado mobile app in collaboration with Century Casinos.
Derek Stevens, CEO Circa Sports said: “We look forward to introducing patrons and sports fans in Colorado to the excitement of Vegas-style sports betting through the Circa Sports Colorado mobile app.
“IGT is the ideal partner for our sports betting expansion. The IGT PlaySports platform continues to prove its ability to support world-class sports betting operations across the US, and I am confident it will enable us to quickly differentiate Circa Sports in Colorado and beyond.”
Enrico Drago, senior vice president at IGT PlayDigital, commented: “Together with Circa Sports, IGT will expand its PlaySports footprint into Colorado, another US state with compelling sports betting growth opportunities for IGT and our customers.
“Circa Sports is a forward-thinking sports betting provider and we look forward to helping them realise their vision of entertaining users with leading multi-state sports betting experiences through our PlaySports technology and services.”
IGT PlaySports currently operates sports betting in 11 US states with sites ranging from commercial with tribal-run casinos to lottery-run attractions and a high profile racetrack.
