IGT Global Solutions Corporation and William Hill US have confirmed the release of enhanced versions of the Sportsbook Rhode Island mobile app and website.
The new app and website (sportsbetrhodeisland.com) delivers a more streamlined experience for Ocean State bettors with an elevated interface, an expanded wagering menu, and an additional way for patrons to fund their accounts.
The elevated user interface, powered by IGT PlaySports technology, aims to offer an improved navigation design for both live and upcoming sporting events and a more efficient wagering process with significantly fewer steps, from start to finish, to place a bet.
Enrico Drago, IGT PlayDigital Senior Vice President, said: “Recent IGT PlaySports technology updates for the Rhode Island Lottery provide Sportsbook Rhode Island users an elevated player experience. These updates also position the Rhode Island Lottery for success when professional sports return in full force.”
Sportsbook Rhode Island users can now wager on a wider selection of futures and prop bet options on popular sporting events. For example, pro football fans can pick “Which team will have more regular season wins in 2020 – New England or Tampa Bay?”
The expanded wagering menu, powered by William Hill Sports Book, has been adjusted with the pause of US sports. The menu now features new international sports including Russian Table Tennis, Taiwanese Basketball, and Nicaraguan and Belarusian Premier League Soccer.
Ken Fuchs, William Hill US President of Digital, commented: “We are excited to continue to innovate with the Rhode Island Lottery and IGT. We are adding alternative sports and additional prop bets to our wagering menu now and look forward to supporting Rhode Island even more when sports return to the US.”
In addition to E-Check, users of the Sportsbook Rhode Island app and website now have the option to fund their accounts electronically with Debit Cards.
IGT and William Hill first partnered with the Rhode Island Lottery in November 2018 to open New England’s first sports books at Twin River Casino and Tiverton Casino. The debut version of the Sportsbook Rhode Island mobile app went live in September of 2019.
