GTECH Interactive has announced a multi-year deal to provide MGM Resorts International with sports betting technology. The deal will cover 12 MGM properties with GTECH ‘OnPremise’ mobile sports betting and casino gaming at 10 MGM properties in the US state of Nevada.
The agreement represents GTECH’s first planned sports betting and GTECH OnPremise mobile gaming deployment in the US.
“This sports betting solution will allow MGM to capitalise on a new system with a single trading management interface, which could help improve global profitability across all sales channels,” said Ludovico Calvi, GTECH’s head of betting.
Matteo Monteverdi, GTECH’s Senior Vice-President of iGaming and Americas Interactive, added: “These solutions will offer live mobile betting guests of MGM Resorts in Nevada for the first time.
“They will also enable MGM Resorts to connect with more players in a new and relevant way, and will enable MGM to offer more gaming without requiring more space on the gaming floor.”
Thomas Mikulich, Senior Vice-President of business development at MGM Resorts International, said that GTECH had been selected for the company’s “end-to-end experience, expertise, and technological innovation”.
He added: “The GTECH OnPremise solution will ensure that our players enjoy convenient and exciting new ways to wager seamlessly across multiple gaming channels, by sports betting via mobile from anywhere within Nevada, and through mobile table games and slots on premise at 10 MGM properties, whether they’re at a sports book, slot floor, restaurant, or poolside.”
