International Game Technology plc announced Friday that MGM Resorts International has selected IGT’s sports betting platform to run its retail sports betting operations as the state of New Jersey opens legalised sports betting.

IGT will provide its end-to-end sports betting solution at Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Borgata has opened for sports betting with IGT’s retail point-of-sale system, enabling in-casino patrons to place in-play and pre-match sports bets over the counter, effective Friday.

IGT currently powers MGM Resorts’ retail sports betting at 10 major Las Vegas Strip properties, and mobile sports betting on the playMGM app with IGT PlaySpot technology throughout Nevada.

“Deployment of IGT’s sports betting solution at Borgata demonstrates that we are ready to deliver the products, technology, support and service to make retail and mobile sports betting a reality in any legalised state, today,” said Renato Ascoli, IGT CEO North America.
