International Game Technology announced today that MGM Resorts International is utilising IGT’s sports betting platform to run its retail sports betting operations as the State of New Jersey has now opened legalised sports betting.
IGT was selected by MGM Resorts to provide its end-to-end sports betting solution at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Borgata has opened for sports betting with IGT’s retail point-of-sale system, enabling in-casino patrons to place in-play and pre-match sports bets over the counter, effective today.
IGT brings significant expertise and experience to providing leading technology to MGM Resorts sports betting. IGT currently powers MGM Resorts’ retail sports betting at ten major Las Vegas Strip properties, and mobile sports betting on the playMGM app with IGT PlaySpot technology throughout Nevada.
“Deployment of IGT’s sports betting solution at Borgata demonstrates that we are ready to deliver the products, technology, support and service to make retail and mobile sports betting a reality in any legalised state, today,” said Renato Ascoli, IGT CEO North America. “We’re very excited to extend our successful sports betting relationship with MGM Resorts to New Jersey and beyond.”
