IGT and William Hill US have deployed their sports betting solutions at Twin River Casino Hotel’s new sportsbook.

GT Global Solutions Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of IGT and William Hill US have provided their sports betting solutions to power Twin River Casino Hotel’s all-new Sportsbook Bar and Grill.
The new venue features more than 100 HD televisions showing live sporting events and dynamic betting lines. Fans can wager on an expansive selection of pre-game and InPlay bets for professional and college sports.
The expansion to the new venue represents a continuation of the successful partnership between IGT and William Hill to provide sports betting to the Rhode Island Lottery.
IGT provides PlayShot, an end-to-end sports betting platform with touchpoints through which bets are placed and settled. William Hill provides odds making services and risk management.
“The seamless experiences our technology provides to players and operators alike is a tremendous source of pride, and I believe it’s a critical factor in why multiple operators have partnered with us to launch sportsbooks this year,” said Enrico Drago, SVP of IGT PlayDigital. “In 2018 alone, PlayShot has processed more than $1 billion through multiple locations in five U.S. states. We look forward to further promoting the advantages of this innovative digital platform as sports betting continues its expansion across the country.”
IGT and William Hill also provide sports betting at Tiverton Casino Hotel, which began accepting bets on 3 December.
Twin River Casino Hotel started accepting bets from a temporary space on 26 November prior to the opening of the Sportsbook Bar and Grill.
“We are excited to partner with the Rhode Island Lottery and IGT to bring a world-class sports betting product to Twin River Casino,” said Joe Asher, CEO of William Hill US. “The lines have
been out the door in the temporary facility, so we are glad the permanent sports book is now ready. William Hill is proud to be the only sports book to operate or provide services in all seven states that have authorised sports betting, with Rhode Island joining Nevada, Delaware, New Jersey, Mississippi, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania.”
In August, the Rhode Island Lottery selected IGT and William Hill to be the sports betting service provider at the state’s licensed video lottery and table gaming establishments. Back in September, IGT and William Hill announced a multi-year agreement to offer US lotteries a full- service sports betting solution aimed at maximising revenue while ensuring reliable, attractive, and innovative service for players.
Outside of Rhode Island, PlayShot also powers sports wagers in Nevada, New Jersey, Mississippi, and West Virginia.
