International Game Technology Plc Received the Approval for West Virginia Sports Betting Product
International Game Technology Plc (IGT) announced this week that they have received the approval for an interim license issued by the West Virginia Lottery Commission for their sports betting platform. The approval means that IGT will be allowed to integrate its sports betting platform, PlayShot and supply casino operators across the West Virginia market with sports betting services.
