LONDON, U.K. – Nov. 20, 2018 – International Game Technology PLC (“IGT”) (NYSE: IGT) today announced that its PlayShot™ integrated sports betting solution has successfully completed the final stage of Nevada regulatory approval – a mandatory field trial for the solution’s on-property sports betting module. With this milestone, the market-leading sports betting solution is fully approved for deployment throughout the State. Mobile sports betting on the PlayShot platform received regulatory approval in a field trial completed in 2017.
Throughout the field trial, the PlayShot solution powered over-the-counter betting services at 10 major Las Vegas Strip casinos and proved to be a stable, efficient and user-friendly business tool. The recent trial also included the testing of IGT’s proprietary MarkSense Technology, a solution that enables operators to design and print parlay sheets and promotions on demand.
“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,” said Enrico Drago, IGT Senior Vice President PlayDigital. “Our customers throughout the U.S. recognize 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.”
