IGT's PlayShot sports betting product approved for Nevada
By Nathan Joyes

PlayShot, IGT's integrated sports betting solution, successfully completed its final stage of Nevada regulatory approval.

Mobile sports betting on the PlayShot platform also received approval after successfully completing a field trial in 2017.

The PlayShot solution was used in 10 major Las Vegas Strip casinos during the field trial to test its betting services.

The field trial also included testing IGT’s MarkSense Technology, which offers a solution to operators to design and print parlay sheets alongside promotions.

Enrico Drago, IGT Senior Vice President, said: “Gaining full regulatory approval in Nevada for IGT’s integrated PlayShot sports betting solution enables our customers throughout the State to benefit from its seamless integration of retail and mobile betting technologies in a single solution.

"Our customers throughout the US recognise the power of the PlayShot technology, and view the hub-and-spoke design of the scalable platform as an important advantage for pursuing sports betting business opportunities in multiple states.”
