International Game Technology (IGT) has signed a multi-year sports betting partnership with Nisqually Red Wind Casino in Washington State.

Under the deal, the Nisqually Red Wind Casino will leverage the IGT PlaySports platform and deploy IGT PlaySports betting kiosks across its land-based facility in Olympia, Washington.

The Nisqually Red Wind Casino is owned and operated by the Nisqually Indian Tribe.

“Nisqually Red Wind Casino is excited to offer our guests additional gaming entertainment and elevated fan engagement by introducing an IGT PlaySports-powered sportsbook,” Nisqually Red Wind Casino general manager Conrad Granito said.
