After linking up with The Mill Casino in North Bend, Oregon, International Game Technology has added further depth to the number of states its PlaySports solution is deployed in the US.
The casino owned by the Coquille Indian Tribe is to use IGT PlaySports technology to deliver retail sports betting to guests under the terms of the deal. This is to encourage patrons to wager over the counter or via the IGT PlaySports kiosks of the casino on a variety of sport wagers.
The property was first opened in 1995 and features over 700 Vegas-style slot machines and a range of table games including blackjack, roulette, craps, three card poker, Spanish 21 and fortune pai gow, over 200 waterfront rooms and over 100 RV sites.
“We are extremely pleased to be the only casino in Southern Oregon to provide our guests access to the excitement of sports betting through IGT’s PlaySports technology,” said Terri Porcaro, CEO of The Mill Casino.
“This new option perfectly complements our slots and table games offering and gives our customers even more reasons to visit our waterfront destination.”
IGT PlaySports currently operates sports betting operations in 11 US states with Oregon joining Arkansas, Indiana, Iowa, New York, Pennsylvania, Mississippi, West Virginia, Rhode Island, New Jersey and Nevada.
“Enabling The Mill Casino in Oregon to offer world-class sports betting experiences is another important milestone in the expansion of IGT’s position in the US sports betting market,” said Enrico Drago, IGT PlayDigital senior vice president.
“The solution’s market-readiness and proven capacity to seamlessly process high volumes of bets across devices and channels continues to differentiate IGT PlaySports in the market and has helped fuel its expansion into 11 US states.”
Nevada’s headquarters last week highlighted the achievement of “significant momentum” during the third quarter of the year, despite a series of declines affecting performance.
Revenue during the period grew to $1.15 billion in constant currency by 3%, with rapid growth in global gaming product sales overcoming the effect of higher computer gaming taxes in Italy as well as “significant Finland multi-year software sale in prior-year quarter”.
