International Game Technology PLC (IGT) has confirmed this week that it is now positioned to expand its sports betting enterprise in Nevada having recently achieved Nevada regulatory approval for its PlaySports platform for retail and online sports betting. 

With this approval, said the firm in a statement, its next-generation sports betting technology stack is approved for deployment throughout the Silver State, enabling more casino operators and their players to benefit from “…the most widely used sports betting platform in the US”.

Enrico Drago, IGT PlayDigital Senior Vice President, commented: “Achieving Nevada Regulatory Approval for our PlaySports technology enables IGT to extend our sports betting expertise to our many, long-time customers throughout the state and notably differentiates IGT from many other B2B sports betting platform providers.”

He added: “IGT’s PlaySports platform is equipped with a high-performance betting engine that delivers an exceptional player experience, an integrated Player Account Management module that enables operators to drive player acquisition and retention through bespoke offers and promotions, and a modular design that enables our PlaySports customers to scale their offering with new market opportunities.”

The company initiated the required Nevada field trial process for its PlaySports technology at Boyd Gaming properties in August 2020 and is currently powering Boyd Gaming’s entire sports betting enterprise in the state. IGT PlaySports is currently deployed in 16 US states.
