IGT has increased its presence in the state of Washington as it announced a multi-year agreement with Kalispel Tribal Economic Authority.
Under the terms of the agreement with the Kalispel Tribe of Indians, which owns Kalispel Casino, IGT will power the casino’s soon-to-launch retail sportsbook using its IGT PlaySports technology and trading advisory services.
“We’re excited to roll out sports betting for our guests at Kalispel Casino,” said Kevin Zenishek, Northern Quest Resort & Casino and Kalispel Casino, Executive Director of Casino Operations. “It has already proven to be a fantastic new amenity at Northern Quest and we know it will be popular at our Kalispel Casino as well.”
The deal marks IGT’s second sports betting business deal in Washington state with Kalispel Tribe following December’s agreement for the deployment of IGT PlaySports at Turf Club Sportsbook in Northern Quest Resort & Casino.
“IGT is pleased to build on our sports betting momentum in Washington State and bolster our long-standing partnership with the Kalispel Tribe of Indians by powering sports betting at Kalispel Casino,” added Joe Asher, IGT President of Sports Betting.
“We look forward to bringing a great sports betting experience to the Kalispel Casino so that our long-time partner can further engage its customers.”
