Scientific Games partners Oneida for New York sports betting

Scientific Games Corporation has been selected to provide the Oneida Indian Nation’s three leading casinos in upstate New York with unrivaled sports betting player experiences through its OpenBet technology, upon the launch of New York’s sports betting market.

This will include player management software and dynamic pre-game and live data feeds from Scientific Games’ recent acquisition of Don Best Sports, which now forms part of its SG Digital business.

The deal is subject to New York passing legislation to legalise sports betting in the state. Oneida and Scientific anticipate that sports wagering could be authorised in New York by the end of 2019.

Scientific Games and Oneida are also required to submit the agreement to the National Indian Gaming Commission (NIGC) for review to ensure it complies with applicable laws.

SG Digital’s chief executive Jordan Levin said: “By partnering with the Oneida Indian Nation who has secured the Caesars Entertainment brand, we’re planning to mirror that success in New York as soon as sports betting is authorized there,” he said. “As the race to capture market share ensues, we have taken great care in our approach to put our customers and their players at the core of our development and overall experience design“.
