- The FanDuel Sportsbook mobile application officially launched in Colorado on May 1.
- FanDuel is using IGT’s PlaySports platform for its Colorado sports betting platforms.
DENVER – FanDuel has now partnered with International Game Technology (IGT) to power FanDuel’s online sportsbook in Colorado. This makes the Centennial State the ninth state with such a partnership between the two companies.
IGT’s PlaySports mobile platform will head up FanDuel’s Colorado sportsbook applications. Other states with the same agreement include New Jersey, Indiana, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania.
New Jersey and Pennsylvania are two of the biggest state success stories in terms of their legalized sports betting industries.
The Colorado Partnership
FanDuel is one of the most profitable sports betting operators in the nation. Even with the current hiatus in sporting events due to the Coronavirus pandemic, they have a number of wagers up for their new members in Colorado to participate in.
The partnership with IGT is part of an effort to allow for a platform with a notable track record to be available to those interested in Colorado sports betting. The sports betting app can be downloaded on both Android and iPhone devices.
“Colorado is home to a passionate group of sports fans and we are incredibly excited to show them why FanDuel is the number one online sportsbook in the country,” said Mike Raffensperger, CMO of FanDuel Group. “Our free to play ANYTHINGBOOK game is designed to engage fans during this period of limited sporting events and introduce them to FanDuel Sportsbook’s unique features and markets.”
The ANYTHINGBOOK Game will allow members to choose one prop bet from a variety of categories ranging from sports to pop culture. Should the bettor answer the question correctly, they will be given a $5 credit to place a bet on anything they’d like.
The sportsbook launched on May 1 along with a handful of others amid the Coronavirus pandemic and less than favorable conditions for sports betting.
IGT is happy to be working with FanDuel in the Centennial State to get sports bettors the best mobile platform available. The partnership allows for FanDuel’s brand to expand their business with the use of IGT products.
“IGT PlaySports continues to stand apart as the trusted, go-to platform for operators that are serious about winning in the U.S. sports betting market, “ said Enrico Drago, IGT PlayDigital Senior Vice President about one of the other partnerships the two companies share. “There is no better example of the market’s confidence in IGT, our products and our people then PlaySports deployments with highly respected sports betting partners such as FanDuel Group.”
