FanDuel and IGT recently announced it officially that they have embarked upon multi-year sports betting deal that will cover the entire US market.
The formidable partnership will enable the duo to provide high-level retail sportsbooks keeping players entertain in a user-friendly way.
A Welcoming Partnership for the US Sports Betting Market
The partnership between the iGaming provider FanDuel Group and the IGT PlaySports platform will provide players in the US an opportunity to take leverage of the growing momentum that the market is experiencing.
In the coming days, we’ll see IGT powering all of the existing and new FanDuel’s retail locations. In addition, it will also provide IGT’s PlayCasino games, where FanDuel Group is running online casinos.
Currently, the agreement extends across nine different states. Residents in these states may now have reached to some of the most exciting and renowned IGT PlayDigital’s PlayCasino games.
The gaming options include roulette, blackjack, and a broad range of slots. You may also see some of the most exciting games in IGT’s portfolio, including Wheel of Fortune Triple Extreme Spin, Trip Red Hot 7s Free Games, and much more.
It should be noted that players will also have access to the mobile betting apps and websites. Moreover, FanDuel also offers its incredibly successful fantasy sports option too.
While commenting on this partnership and IGT’s inclusion, Matt King, FanDuel Group CEO, said:
“IGT’s PlaySports platform has been integral to FanDuel Sportsbook’s expansion in the country, as we currently leverage it to power Americas no.1 Sportsbook. IGT’s PlaySports platform allows us to create an intuitive, technologically-driven client experience at our top-class retail sportsbooks for our clients, while its PlayCasino content enables FanDuel to offer premium mobile casino entertainment in new and existing markets.”
This Isn’t Their First Venture
The fact that makes the deal even more exciting is that it is not the first time that the duo has embarked on a venture. In fact, the partnership has been providing all sorts of notable events since 2018.
These significant events include: the FanDuel Retail sportsbook being launched in eight states, offering more than 200 IGT PlaySports self-kiosks across the nation, launching an online sportsbook option in five states, operating the biggest retail sportsbook in the nation in East Rutherford, N.J., and more.
