International Game Technology (IGT) announced on Monday that it has expanded its sports betting market opportunities in Puerto Rico via a multi-year PlaySports technology and services agreement with The Stadium LLC.
The Stadium LLC owns and operates WinIn, a Puerto-Rico-based entertainment company that has partnerships with eSports companies and the top baseball league in the region, Liga de Béisbol Profesional Roberto Clemente, which plans to expand into the recently regulated sports betting market in Puerto Rico.
Under the terms of the agreement, IGT PlaySports technology and trading advisory services will power all of WinIn's future online and retail sportsbooks in Puerto Rico.
Grace Santana, WinIn Chief Operating Officer, said: "As the sports betting market in Puerto Rico takes shape, WinIn is well-positioned to deliver world-class online and retail sports betting thanks to our technology and services partnership with IGT. IGT's PlaySports platform continues to prove its capacity to scale with new market opportunities and give players a seamless omnichannel experience that they can trust."
Joe Asher, IGT President of Sports Betting, commented: "IGT PlaySports is highly experienced at helping operators such as WinIn successfully establish competitive sportsbooks in newly-regulated jurisdictions. The prospect of adding Puerto Rico as a territory with PlaySports-powered sportsbooks is another exciting step in our effort to further expand our footprint across North America."
