Global supplier of gaming solutions International Game Technology (IGT) announced that it entered into an agreement with the Oneida Nation to power its sportsbook at Oneida Casino in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
PlaySports Expands into Wisconsin
The agreement with the Oneida Nation that will allow IGT’s PlaySport retail and mobile sports betting platform to expand its presence into another US gaming jurisdiction was announced shortly after the updated gaming compact of the tribe received approval by the Department of the Interior (DOI).
IGT applauds the Oneida Nation for being the first tribe in Wisconsin to re-negotiate its compact with the State and position themselves to reap the long-term benefits of deploying IGT’s world-class PlaySports solution.”Enrico Drago, SVP, IGT PlayDigital
The Oneida Nation became the first Wisconsin tribe to receive approval to offer sports betting at its properties. The Oneida Casino located on the Oneida Nation Reservation in Green Bay is set to be the first tribal venue to launch retail and mobile wagering on sports.
We look forward to partnering with IGT to introduce sports betting to our loyal patrons and becoming the first casino in Wisconsin to operate a sportsbook. Implementing IGT’s proven PlaySports platform and trading advisory services will strongly enhance Oneida Casino as a premier gaming destination.”Louise Cornelius, Gaming General Manager, Oneida Casino
Following in the footsteps of the operator of Coushatta Casino Resort in Kinder, LA, the Coushatta Tribe, which signed an agreement with IGT in July to utilize PlaySports at the state’s largest casino, the Oneida Nation is the latest Indian tribe to partner with the technology supplier for its turnkey sports betting solution.
We’re committed to supporting Oneida’s sports betting vision and producing the highest quality technology, solutions, and services to successfully launch and sustain its sports betting operations.”Enrico Drago, SVP, IGT PlayDigital
