International Game Technology (IGT) has expanded its PlaySports offering for the US sports betting market with the formation of its own full-service trading team based in Las Vegas.

The team will, said the firm, provide around-the-clock expert odds making with localized pricing for pre-game and in-play bets, continual offer monitoring and optimization, and on-call expertise in every aspect of day-to-day sportsbook operations. 

PlaySports customers will also benefit from compelling and original promotional bets, exclusive parlay and combination wagering and player retention and acquisition strategies designed by the team’s content managers.

“IGT’s in-house, US-based trading team enhances the appeal of the entire PlaySports offering and enables us to deliver an ‘all-in-one’ solution for operators seeking a single sports betting service provider,” said Enrico Drago, IGT PlayDigital Senior Vice President. 

He added: “IGT PlaySports’ pure B2B focus, the trading team’s in-depth knowledge of regional and local betting preferences and trends, and the company’s favorable regulatory standings in tribal and state-governed jurisdictions across the US continue to create opportunities for our customers and drive our nationwide sports betting leadership.”

According to Drago, the flexibility and reliability of the PlaySports platform has long been one of its greatest attributes, and adding services such as those provided by its trading team completes the solution. 

“Now, retail and online sportsbooks, from the smallest to the largest, in any sports betting-legal state in the US, can confidently take advantage of a fully integrated, truly world-class trading service that is built on the leading betting technology and backed by IGT, the most trusted name in gaming,” he said.
