Patrons of Pearl River Resort‘s Golden Moon Casino and Silver Star Casino in Philadelphia, will be among the first sports fans in the world to place pre-match and in-game sports wagers at a private, luxury carrel courtesy of the launch this week of IGT’s CrystalBetting terminal at the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians‘ venues.

According to IGT, the terminals give players a comfortable, VIP sports betting experience unlike anything currently offered in the US sports betting market. Each includes a 27-inch monitor where fans can watch live sporting events and place a range of wagers. 

The hardware features privacy wings, a personal listening audio jack, USB charging port and  convenient workstation. 

“Pearl River Resort is proud to partner with IGT on the global launch of the CrystalBetting Terminal,” said Neal Atkinson, Pearl River Resort Director of Table Games. “We prioritize being on the forefront of sports betting innovation and providing our players choice and convenience for placing sports bets at our properties.

“Extending our sports betting offering to include IGT’s CrystalBetting Terminals elevates the player experience and gives our patrons yet another reason to choose Pearl River Resort for gaming entertainment.”

“By adding the CrystalBetting Terminal to its already impressive sports betting offering, Pearl River Resort is positioned to engage sports fans in new ways and to differentiate its offering,” said Nick Khin, IGT Chief Commercial Officer, Gaming. 

“IGT’s sports betting momentum in the US market, paired with the player insights that we gained while testing the CrystalBetting Terminal, reinforce our confidence in the product’s capacity to deliver a compelling player experience that complements the entire IGT sports betting technology ecosystem.”

The terminal is currently undergoing a 90-day field trial and has already secured GLI certification and Mississippi Choctaw Gaming Commission approval.
