IGT extends PlayDigital PlayShot QuickBet tech to New Jersey

7 March 2019

International Game Technology (IGT) has extended the reach of its PlayDigital PlayShot QuickBet kiosk technology into New Jersey via a partnership with the FanDuel Sportsbook.

FanDuel has installed 14 units at its sportsbook facility at the New Meadowlands Racetrack, with visitors now able to place a range of bets via the kiosks.  

The FanDuel Sportsbook is the first venue in New Jersey to deploy IGT’s omni-channel PlayShot sports betting solution, which can be used to power mobile, over-the-counter and terminal-based wagering.

“PlayShot’s flexible and fully integrable design enabled FanDuel to incorporate IGT PlayDigital’s PlayShot QuickBet kiosks into its world-class sportsbook ecosystem at The New Meadowlands Racetrack,” senior vice-president for IGT PlayDigital, Enrico Drago, said.

“The self-service kiosks deliver the same high-quality user experience as the FanDuel website and mobile apps, and feature real-time pricing updates for a full range of markets to give players at the New Meadowlands Racetrack the best possible betting experience.”

FanDuel is currently ranked as the leading online operator in New Jersey, having generated $7.0m (£5.3m/€6.2m) in revenue in January. However, this figure was down 23% on December’s blockbuster $9.1m figure.

The launch comes after IGT also rolled out the PlayShot omni-channel platform in Nevada in November, following approval from state authorities.

PlayShot was rolled out as a mobile solution in Nevada in 2017, and powers sports betting at a number of MGM-operated casinos on the Strip, including the MGM Grand, via the PlayMGM mobile app.
