The Pascua Yaqui Tribe selected Scientific Games to power the launch of its first sportsbook at its Casino Del Sol land-based casino in Tucson, Arizona.
Scientific Games will deploy its full OpenSports platform solution at the casino, with visitors able to place bets at a retail sportsbook and at self-service sports betting kiosks throughout the venue and at its Casino of the Sun sister property.
Both Casino Del Sol and Casino of the Sun will have access to the full sports betting offering from Scientific Games, including the OpenBet engine and OpenTrade full risk and liability management service powered by Don Best Sports.
The two casinos will allow players to place wagers on the wide range of sports betting markets offered by OpenSports, while providing the operators with a platform that has a proud history of performing at the highest levels during the biggest sporting events across the globe.
“The OpenSports solution is a robust and scalable platform that can withstand all the pressures associated with major sporting events, while providing customers with an extensive range of markets,” Casino Del Sol chief executive Kimberly Van Amburg said.
The agreement marks Scientific Games’ entrance into Arizona’s regulated sports betting market, with the state having only legalized sports wagering in April this year.
Scientific Games’ senior vice president and general manager for digital in the US, Cathryn Lai, added: “Casino Del Sol and Casino of the Sun have both worked tirelessly to become leading casinos in Arizona and we are sure this new partnership can go from strength to strength in the newly regulated state.
“We believe Arizona’s sports betting market will grow rapidly in size and we look forward to providing customers with a first-class offering.”
