IGT signs three-year sports betting contract extension with Rhode Island Lottery

10 April 2023

(PRESS RELEASE) -- International Game Technology PLC announced today that the company signed a three-year contract extension with the Rhode Island Lottery to continue providing its proven sports betting technology. IGT PlaySports, along with its commercial partner William Hill U.S., powers statewide mobile sports betting via the Sportsbook Rhode Island app and sportsbook locations at Bally's Twin River Lincoln Casino Resort and Bally's Tiverton Casino & Hotel.

"As one of the first U.S. lotteries to launch sports betting, Rhode Island Lottery is very pleased with the successful program we have built over the last five years, backed by IGT's world-class technology and William Hill's operator experience," said Mark Furcolo, Rhode Island Lottery Director. "IGT recently invested significant resources to enhance our sports betting platform and mobile app. These upgrades will enable us to maximize revenue and offer a solution that remains competitive among neighboring states in this dynamic, regional sports betting market."

In addition to providing its PlaySports technology, IGT is the exclusive supplier of lottery, iLottery, instant ticket and video lottery solutions and services to the Rhode Island Lottery.

"The Rhode Island Lottery championed sports betting in 2018 as one of the early adopters in the post-PASPA era, and IGT is excited to continue driving Rhode Island's sports betting growth," said Joe Asher, IGT President of Sports Betting. "Rhode Island is home to very loyal sports fans who love following their New England-based teams. The enhancements IGT has made to the Lottery's sports betting platform and app provide fans with a convenient and intuitive player experience and yield strong returns that support the Lottery's commitment to generating revenue for good causes."

IGT PlaySports is deployed at more than 80 gaming venues across the U.S. and Canada.
