IGT signs sports betting agreement with Mississippi Choctaw Indians
By Jake Patel

Supplier IGT has announced a new sports betting agreement with the Mississippi band of Choctaw Indians.

The agreement allows the Pearl River Resorts' Golden Moon Hotel & Casino and Silver Star Hotel & Casino in Choctaw and Bok Homa Casino in Sandersville to use IGT sports betting solution PlayShot.

Last month, Golden Moon Hotel & Casino became the first non-Nevada tribal casino to open a sportsbook after the repeal of the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act.

IGT’s Playshot will enable casino patrons to place pre-match and in-play sports wagers over the counter at the Mississippi establishments.

Enrico Drago, IGT Senior Vice President PlayDigital, said: "IGT's leading entry into the tribal gaming sports betting space demonstrates how a wide variety of casino operators can benefit from our flexible, market-ready PlayShot sports betting solution."

Operator FanDuel also recently announced that it will expand into the Mississippi sports betting market at Boyd Gaming casinos.
