Sportsbook technology provider Betgenius is providing its odds creation and risk management solutions to the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians’ two newly launched sportsbooks in Mississippi.
Betgenius’ sportsbook trading console has been integrated into IGT’s PlayShot sports betting platform, which launched a sportsbook for the Tribal gaming operator at the end of August.
The IGT-powered sportsbook at Pearl River Resort enables customers to place wagers over the counter at the recently opened Timeout Lounge at Gold Moon Casino. The operator has also launched a satellite sportsbook at its Bok Homa Casino near Laurel, with mobile and online wagering planned for the future.
Betgenius is delivering a complete sportsbook management solution, including live sports data feeds, price management for pre-game and in-play odds across all major US sports, as well as a bespoke, end-to-end price and risk management service.
“By leveraging Betgenius’ expertise in sportsbook management and breadth of high quality content, Pearl River Resorts has established a premium sports betting offering,” said Genius Sports Group chief commercial officer Jack Davison. “The legalisation of sports betting presents tribal casinos with a major opportunity to diversify their revenue streams and take a leading role in the fast-moving, tech-driven sector of sports betting.
“Through this partnership, we are extremely proud to play a role in enabling the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians to be the first tribal casino to do just that.”
Neal Atkinson, director of table games, who also oversees the Pearl River Resorts sports betting operations, commented: “We look forward to this partnership and are working with Betgenius to tailor their services for this exciting new Southern US sports betting market.”
Enrico Drago, senior vice president PlayDigital at IGT, added: “IGT’s collaboration with Betgenius resulted in a history-making sports betting solution for Pearl River Resorts.
“Betgenius’ odds making and risk management expertise and technology were the ideal complements to IGT’s market-ready PlayShot sports betting platform and our position as the leading end-to-end gaming supplier.”
