Sportsbook technology supplier, Betgenius, has been selected to power the new sportsbook launched by the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians.
Betgenius will integrate its technology into International Game Technology’s (IGT) PlayShot sports betting platform which is already live at two venues owned by the tribe in Mississippi.
As part of the deal, Betgenius will provide risk management solutions and provide its odds creation solutions to the tribe.
Betgenius will also provide the sportsbook with live sports data feeds, in-play odds and price management for all major US sporting events.
Jack Davison, CCO of Genius Sports Group, the parent company of Betgenius, said: “By leveraging Betgenius’ expertise in sportsbook management and breadth of high-quality content, Pearl River Resorts has established a premium sports betting offering.
“The legalization 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 and Pearl River Resorts Sports Betting Operations, said: “We look forward to this partnership and are working with Betgenius to tailor their services for this exciting new Southern U.S. sports betting market.”
The tribe recently launched sportsbook operations at the Pearl River Resort in Mississippi at the Gold Moon Casino’s Timeout Lounge.
