FSB has secured a sports wagering agreement with slot route operator AG Trucano (AGT).
As part of the agreement, the sports betting and online gaming platform provider’s self-service betting kiosks will be distributed across 11 AGT-operated casinos in Deadwood, South Dakota subject to licence approval.
Two of the 11 casinos meanwhile will also be supported by FSB’s over-the-counter EPOS solution, while the agreement will see AGT operate a single retail sportsbook across the 11 casinos.
The new US venture for the group follows the revamping of its North American leadership team earlier this year, where Vice President of Pre-Sales, Mike Van Ermen, and Vice President of Operations, Bob Akeret, joined from Circa Sports and Resorts Digital Gaming respectively.
“This is a tremendous step forward for FSB as we continue to make progress in the North American market,” said Van Ermen. “AG Trucano has an outstanding reputation in South Dakota and we’re delighted to be building this partnership with them.
“This deal is testament to the strength of our localised retail offering and the huge progress that FSB has made in 2021 in the US and globally. It’s great to see our momentum continuing.”
Bart Hamm, President & Owner at Aces Full Inc (AG Trucano), commented: “With the legalisation of sports betting in the city of Deadwood in 2020, we were keen to find a technically advanced US-based team who would help us operate a retail sportsbook in our properties.
“FSB has a unique retail offering that gives us control and flexibility while allowing us to offer our patrons a sensational sports betting experience.”
