New York-listed supplier Scientific Games has launched two new sportsbooks for Oneida Indian Nation in New York State.
Oneida’s Turning Stone Resort in Verona and Point Place Casino in Bridgeport have gone live with the supplier’s OpenSports product suite.
Operated under 'The Lounge with Caesars Sports' brand, the new sportsbooks include over-the-counter wagering and in-venue screen solutions, with self-service betting terminals to follow in the coming weeks.
Following the sportsbook openings, Scientific Games and Oneida Indian Nation plan to launch a mobile sports betting solution within the state when legally permitted.
“This launch with Oneida Indian Nation is another great testament of our best-in-class OpenSports product suite, with its end to end sports betting offering, our speed to market and our quality execution,” said SG Digital group CEO Jordan Levin. “It marks the fourth state in which we've launched our sports betting solution, and signals our commitment to help our customers grow in this ever expanding market.
“The OpenSports product suite has been transformed over the last twelve months by world-class engineering, product and UX teams. It can be tailored to fit the needs of any customer, and this launch, as our first tribal sports betting opportunity in the US is a perfect example of our truly flexible product solutions. We're thrilled to continue our partnership with Oneida Indian Nation and to use our trusted technology to help them reach new bettors.”
Oneida Nation Representative and Nation Enterprises CEO Ray Halbritter commented: “We're excited to be among the first to offer sports betting in New York and are confident in our ability to grow this market in the months and years ahead.
“The OpenSports solution allows us to focus on our guests while giving us a sturdy technological foundation on which we can build as the industry expands.”
The Lounge with Caesars Sports is anticipated to open at Oneida’s Yellow Brick Road Casino later this summer in time for the NFL regular season.
