IGT has signed an agreement with FanDuel across all the operator's US markets until September 2024.
The partnership has two facets: firstly, IGT’s PlaySports platform will power FanDuel’s retail sportsbooks and, secondly, IGT PlayDigital will offer PlayCasino games for FanDuel’s online casino arm.
It must be noted the two brands were already in partnership, although this deal has broadened that combination, as well as extending its duration.
Matt King, FanDuel Group CEO, said: “IGT’s PlaySports platform has been integral to FanDuel Sportsbook’s expansion in the US, as we currently leverage it to power America’s #1 Sportsbook.
“IGT is the strategic partner that we will lean on to help us expand our retail footprint across the US.”
Enrico Drago, IGT PlayDigital SVP, said: “IGT and FanDuel Group are positioned for continued success in the US and we are committed to fueling FanDuel Sportsbooks’ sustained growth.”
