International Game Technology (IGT) will power sports betting at Coushatta Casino Resort in Kinder, Louisiana.
As part of the agreement, IGT will deliver its PlaySports turnkey solution, including its trading advisory services.
The Coushatta Casino Resort is owned and operated by the Coushatta Tribe of Lousiana; it features over 2,000 slots and more than 54 table games.
Jonathan Cernek, Chairman of the Coushatta Tribe of Louisiana, said: “We’re very excited to be one of the first casinos in Louisiana to secure a sports betting agreement, allowing us to offer our patrons new types of gaming experiences backed by IGT’s reliable sports betting solution.
“IGT’s bundled solution, consisting of its leading sports betting platform and products, will allow us to quickly and easily deploy an exceptional localised sports betting program.”
Enrico Drago, IGT PlayDigital SVP, added: “Coushatta Casino Resort is Louisiana’s largest casino resort and represents another significant milestone for IGT as we continue to drive our US sports betting momentum.
“We look forward to helping the casino establish a best-in-class sports betting program, leveraging IGT’s proven technology and services to expand gaming experiences for its patrons.”
IGT has also released its sustainability report, which outlined the company’s improved environment and social governance performance year-over-year.
The company said it focuses its “corporate social responsibility activities on four key pillars: Valuing and Protecting Our People, Advancing Responsibility, Supporting Our Communities and Fostering Sustainable Operations.”
