International Game Technology PLC has just informed the public that its powerful PlaySports platform will power FanDuel Group’s sportsbook mobile app in the state of Virginia.
IGT and FanDuel Group have joined forces to provide cutting-edge sports betting solutions in 12 American states.
International Game Technology has been a platform provider to FanDuel Sportsbooks since 2018. It is also a supplier to one of the most famous sportsbooks in the US, Meadowlands Racing and Entertainment in East Rutherford, N.J. Only recently, IGT and FanDuel Group have concluded an agreement, allowing the IGT sportsbook platform to become the exclusive retail provider for the U.S. market.
Thanks to the new agreement, Virginia will become one of the latest states to offer the FanDuel Sportsbook app. As a reminder, New Jersey, Tennessee, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Indiana, Illinois and Iowa already offer the same solution to players across the US.
Commenting on the new delivery, Senior Vice President and General Manager at FanDuel Sportsbook, Niall Connell said:
“We are excited to continue to grow our geographical and operational footprint with the launch of legal sports betting in the Commonwealth of Virginia late last week. These are complex launches with individualized state-by-state requirements that require experienced partners like IGT.”
IGT PlayDigital Senior Vice President Enrico Drago noted:
“We are proud of the role IGT has played in helping FanDuel Group build the player-preferred sports betting solution in the U.S. market. The IGT PlaySports platform is aiding FanDuel as it scales new market opportunities such as its recent launch in Virginia and enabling FanDuel to deliver its multi-state sports betting enterprise.”
