IGT’s content will now be available for players in all seven U.S. iGaming states.

The company announced that its IGT PlayDigital iGaming content library will now be available in Rhode Island via the Bally Casino Rhode Island app and website.

“IGT PlayDigital is thrilled to extend the reach of our market-leading games and promotional tools portfolio to players in Rhode Island via our strategic partnership with Bally’s Corporation,” said IGT President of iGaming Gil Rotem. “As a long-time lottery and gaming supplier in Rhode Island, IGT is deeply committed to propelling the success of iGaming in the State and delivering highly entertaining games such as Cash Eruption and Fortune Coin that are proven to drive player engagement.”

Bally’s is the sole provider of iGaming in Rhode Island after Senate Bill 948 was passed into law which facilitated the opening of the online casino market in the state.

As well as IGT, Bally’s has agreed partnerships in the state with Stakelogic to leverage its live casino product and White Hat Gaming to provide its PAM solution.

White Hat Studios has also launched its range of online slots with Bally’s in the state.

“Bally Casino is pleased to make IGT PlayDigital’s legendary game portfolio available to our players from the first day of online gaming in Rhode Island,” added Bally’s Rhode Island Operations President Craig Eaton. “We’ve created a top-tier player experience at Bally Casino that gives players the convenient opportunity to experience many of their favorite IGT slots such as Cleopatra, Cats and Wolf Run at any time and from any location inside Rhode Island.”

IGT to merge with Everi in $6.2 billion transaction

Last month IGT announced that it had reached an agreement to combine its Global Gaming and PlayDigital businesses with casino technology supplier Everi. The deal, subject to regulatory approval, is set to close by early 2025 and values the combined businesses at $6.2 billion.

As part of the transaction, IGT will separate its Global Gaming and PlayDigital segments into a taxable spin-off to IGT shareholders, which are expected to own roughly 54% of the combined company. Everi stockholders, once the deal is closed, will own roughly 46% of shares.
