IGT enters Oregon sports betting market with tribal partner


IGT has entered the Oregon market with its PlaySports technology service now powering retail sports betting at The Mill Casino.

Patrons of The Coquille Indian Tribe-owned casino in North Bend can now place a range of sports wagers over the counter or via the casino’s IGT PlaySports kiosks.

The Mill Casino joins Chinook Winds in offering retail casino betting in the state, with the Oregon Lottery the only operator able to provide mobile sports betting through its SBTech-powered app.

Oregon becomes the 11th state where IGT’s PlaySports service is active.

“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.”

Earlier this year, the Oregon Lottery revealed that it expects to generate $141.2m in revenue over the first three years following the launch of its SBTech-powered retail and mobile sportsbook. The state lottery rolled out its SBTech-powered sportsbook offering Scoreboard in October.

IGT recently announced that its subsidiary, IGT Global Solutions Corporation, has signed a five-year contract with the Oregon State Lottery to upgrade its central gaming system.
