Betfred and IGT Expand Sports Betting Presence in Nevada with Retail and Mobile Betting Agreement

IGaming giant, International Game Technology PLC (IGT), has announced the expansion of its sports betting presence in the casino Nevada market through a new multi-year PlaySports technology agreement with established sports betting operator, Betfred. The agreement enables Betfred to utilize IGT’s PlaySports technology to offer retail and mobile sports betting at the Mohegan Sun Sportsbook within Virgin Hotels Las Vegas, a part of Curio Collection by Hilton. This marks the first Betfred sportsbook in the U.S. to utilize IGT technology and Betfred’s entry into the Nevada betting market.

Initially, Betfred will introduce retail betting, with plans to follow up with a mobile launch in the future. IGT’s PlaySports technology powers sports betting at over 80 gaming venues across the U.S. and Canada. For additional information, please visit or follow IGT on LinkedIn.

It’s an honor to work with Fred’s team in the U.S. as they introduce the Betfred product in Nevada,” said Joe Asher, IGT President of Sports Betting. “IGT PlaySports looks forward to applying our vast experience in Nevada and beyond to help Betfred create a successful sportsbook that will appeal to local sports fans and visitors alike.”
