EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – International Game Technology (IGT) and FanDuel have extended their partnership to expand their mark in the sports betting and iGaming market throughout the US.
The multi-year agreement will have all of FanDuel Group’s existing and new retail sportsbooks powered by IGT’s PlaySports platform until September 2024.
Also, in states where FanDuel Group online casinos operate, the platform will now offer IGT PlayDigtial’s PlayCasino games.
“IGT’s PlaySports platform has been integral to FanDuel Sportsbook’s expansion in the U.S., as we currently leverage it to power America’s #1 Sportsbook,” said Matt King, FanDuel Group CEO. “IGT is the strategic partner that we will lean on to help us expand our retail footprint across the U.S. IGT’s PlaySports platform enables us to create an intuitive, technologically driven customer experience at our world-class retail sportsbooks for our customers, while its PlayCasino content enables FanDuel to deliver premium mobile casino entertainment in new and existing markets.”
This agreement comes on top of IGT and FanDuel’s previous technology partnership in nine US states which includes the country’s highest-volume sportsbook, The FanDuel Sportsbook at Meadow Racing and Entertainment located in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
This deal will expand where IGT PlayDigital’s PlayCasino games are currently offered around the US. The online casino games include blackjack, slots, roulette, and some top-performing games like Wheel of Fortune, Red Hot Tamales, and Triple Extreme Spin.
“IGT’s multi-faceted, multi-year PlaySports platform technology and iGaming content agreement with FanDuel Group pairs the leading content and B2B sports betting provider with one of America’s most respected sports betting operators to propel an already winning partnership to new levels and create an abundance of opportunity for both parties,” said Enrico Drago, IGT PlayDigital Senior Vice President. “IGT and FanDuel Group are positioned for continued success in the U.S. and we are committed to fueling FanDuel Sportsbooks’ sustained growth through our proven, market-ready platform, player-preferred game content and self-service betting technologies.”
Both companies have found success together by launching land-based sportsbooks in eight states and online sportsbooks in five US states since only 2018. With this agreement, they will be able to reach more legal sports betting markets around the country.
