- IGT will power the Wild Card Saloon Casino sportsbook and the Sasquatch Casino sportsbook.
- Both casinos will launch retail and online sportsbooks but no release date has been revealed.
BLACK HAWK, Colo. – IGT announced on Tuesday that they will fuel the sportsbook for two casinos in Colorado. The casinos are the Wild Card Saloon and the Sasquatch Casino.
Both casinos are owned by Ed & Shirley’s Inc. and are located in Black Hawk, Colorado, and will both offer full sports betting services. That means both mobile sports betting and retail sports betting will be handled by IGT at both locations.
IGT And Colorado
IGT is setting itself for success in Colorado. Colorado sports betting is relatively new but IGT seems to be going all-in with the concept.
The partnership with Ed & Shirley’s is not IGT’s first in Colorado.
Weeks ago, FanDuel and IGT joined in a similar partnership for a new mobile sportsbook.
“Colorado is shaping up to be one of the most compelling sports betting markets in the U.S., and a region where IGT is clearly demonstrating the power, versatility and scalability of our PlaySports solution,” said Enrico Drago, IGT PlayDigital Senior Vice President. “Wild Card Saloon and Sasquatch Casino will leverage the same, proven PlaySports platform and retail technology that is powering many of the most successful sportsbooks in the U.S., positioning them to provide outstanding user experiences that drive growth.”
Colorado has the recipe for success in the legal sports betting market.
Sports bettors are allowed to sign up for a mobile sportsbook remotely. That means although there is an ongoing pandemic going on, new sports bettors can still sign up for a sportsbook.
Having remote registration is proving to be the deciding factor of how successful a state is with mobile sports betting.
Since Colorado has remote registration, that gives IGT more reasons to invest their time in the state, which will only give IGT the ultimate benefit in the end.
