IGT and William Hill US have been chosen by the Rhode Island Lottery for its sports betting partners.
William Hill US is IGT’s commercial partner. Both together they deliver end-to-end sports betting technologies and services to state licensed lottery venues. With the new contract the two will be delivering their high-end technologies to Twin River Casino and Tiverton Casino. Under the agreement, the two casinos will utilize IGT’s sports betting platform while William Hill provides its sports betting operation and risk management tools. Sometime in mid-November is when sports betting activities are supposed to go live in the state.
Gerald Aubin, Rhode Island Lottery Director said,
“It’s an exciting time for the Rhode Island Lottery. With the introduction of legalized sports betting, we will leverage world-class resources and technology from IGT and William Hill to provide the best-possible sports betting experience for the patrons who visit our casinos.”
Renato Ascoli, IGT CEO, North America added to the comments saying,
“The combination with William Hill US uniquely positions us to provide the Rhode Island Lottery with a comprehensive, market-ready solution to maximize sports betting revenues and returns to good causes for the state of Rhode Island.”
