IGT and William Hill US have debuted new enhanced versions of both the Sportsbook Rhode Island mobile app and website, providing a more streamlined user experience featuring an elevated interface, an expanded wagering menu, and an additional way for patrons to fund their accounts.
IGT’s wholly-owned subsidiary, IGT Global Solutions, and William Hill US have released enhanced versions of both the Sportsbook Rhode Island mobile app and website.
The new app, available for iOS and Android devices, and website (sportsbetrhodeisland.com) provides sports fans in the Ocean State a more streamlined experience featuring an elevated interface, an expanded wagering menu, and an additional way for patrons to fund their accounts.
The elevated user interface, powered by IGT PlaySports technology, offers an improved navigation design for both live and upcoming sporting events and a more efficient wagering process with significantly fewer steps, from start to finish, to place a bet.
“Recent IGT PlaySports technology updates for the Rhode Island Lottery provide Sportsbook Rhode Island users an elevated player experience,” said Enrico Drago, IGT PlayDigital SVP. “These updates also position the Rhode Island Lottery for success when professional sports return in full force.”
Sportsbook Rhode Island users can now wager on a wider selection of futures and prop bet options on popular sporting events.
The expanded wagering menu, powered by William Hill Sports Book, has been adjusted with the pause of US sports. The menu now features new international sports including Russian Table Tennis, Taiwanese Basketball, and Nicaraguan and Belarusian Premier League Soccer.
“We are excited to continue to innovate with the Rhode Island Lottery and IGT. We are adding alternative sports and additional prop bets to our wagering menu now and look forward to supporting Rhode Island even more when sports return to the US,” added Ken Fuchs, William Hill US president of digital.
In addition to E-Check, users of the Sportsbook Rhode Island app and website now have the option to fund their accounts electronically with Debit Cards.
In November of 2018, IGT and William Hill partnered with the Rhode Island Lottery to open New England’s first sports books at Twin River Casino and Tiverton Casino. The debut version of the Sportsbook Rhode Island mobile app went live in September of 2019.
IGT PLAYSPORTS TO POWER CIRCA SPORTS COLORADO MOBILE SPORTS BETTING APP
IGT recently signed an agreement with Nevada-based Circa Sports to power the company’s Colorado mobile sports betting app with the IGT PlaySports platform. Earlier this year, Circa Sports announced plans to launch its mobile app for Colorado in partnership with Century Casinos. “We look forward to introducing patrons and sports fans in Colorado to the excitement of Vegas-style sports betting through the Circa Sports Colorado mobile app,” said Derek Stevens, CEO of Circa Sports. “IGT is the ideal partner for our sports betting expansion.
The IGT PlaySports platform continues to prove its ability to support world-class sports betting operations across the US, and I am confident it will enable us to quickly differentiate Circa Sports in Colorado and beyond.” IGT PlaySports is currently powering sports betting across 11 US states and at venues ranging from commercial and tribal-run casinos to lottery-run destinations and a high-profile racetrack. “Together with Circa Sports, IGT will expand its PlaySports footprint into Colorado, another U.S. state with compelling sports betting growth opportunities for IGT and our customers,” said Enrico Drago, IGT PlayDigital’s SVP.
“Circa Sports is a forward-thinking sports betting provider and we look forward to helping them realise their vision of entertaining users with leading multi-state sports betting experiences through our PlaySports technology and services.”
