etgenius has announced that it will be providing its premium sportsbook content and risk management services to Resorts World Catskills Casino Resort’s newly opened sports betting destination, Sportsbook 360, in Monticello, New York State.
Betgenius’ sportsbook trading console is integrated into IGT’s PlaySports platform. The Betgenius solution delivers live sports data feeds, price management support for pre-game and in-play odds across all major U.S. and international sports, as well as a bespoke, end-to-end price and risk management advisory service.
The launch follows the New York State Gaming Commission’s move in June to regulate on-premise sports betting in the fourth most populous state in the U.S.
Sportsbook 360 encompasses roughly 6,000 square feet of the casino floor, making it easily accessible to patrons who are playing on any of the 1,600 slot machines or one of more than 150 live table games. Sportsbook 360 includes a bar and more than 100 seats, and patrons have access to cashier windows and self-serve betting kiosks to place bets on their favorite teams.
"Resorts World Catskills is excited to partner with Betgenius and IGT PlaySports who are recognized as world leaders in sports betting technology and services," said Kevin Kline, Chief Operating Officer and General Manager, Resorts World Catskills.

Utilizing Betgenius’ premium sports betting content in sportsbook management, Resorts World Catskills will offer its customers the most extensive and engaging sports betting experience."
Sportsbook 360’s grand opening ceremony is scheduled to take place on Thursday, September 5, in conjunction with the start of the NFL season.
