International Game Technology (IGT) is to launch its PlaySports sportsbook platform in Wisconsin through an agreement with Oneida Casino, operated by the Oneida Nation.
The casino, located in Green Bay, will use IGT’s turnkey solution for both retail and mobile sports betting, after the Oneida Nation became the first tribe in Wisconsin to receive approval to operate wagering from the state government.
“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,” said Louise Cornelius, Oneida Casino’s gaming general manager.
“Implementing IGT’s proven PlaySports platform and trading advisory services will strongly enhance Oneida Casino as a premier gaming destination.”
Enrico Drago, senior vice president of IGT PlayDigital, added: “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.
“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.”
