nternational Game Technology (IGT) announced Monday that the company will debut its latest sports betting solutions, the IGT PlaySports Bank and PlaySports Pod, at the Global Gaming Expo (G2E) this week in Las Vegas.
The PlaySports Bank and PlaySports Pod feature three intuitive, self-service betting kiosks and are topped with high-definition multi-media displays that can showcase a range of content including live sporting events, betting odds, lines, game day feeds and more. The PlaySports Bank is designed to go against a wall, while the PlaySports Pod can be deployed in a standalone setting.
"IGT PlaySports Bank and PlaySports Pod are designed to expand sports betting beyond the sportsbook. They provide our customers with creativity and control in designing their sports betting offerings while improving the player experience and reducing operating costs," said Enrico Drago, IGT PlayDigital Senior Vice President. "We are excited to add the PlaySports Bank and PlaySports Pod to our market-leading PlaySports portfolio, as they offer a compelling way for our customers to benefit from new sports betting market opportunities."
IGT PlaySports is currently powering sports betting in ten U.S. states. The company will showcase the full capabilities of its PlaySports solution and sports wagering peripherals in booth 3659 at G2E.
G2E will also be the global trade show debut for two Jeopardy!-themed IGT slot machines.
On Tuesday, October 15, Las Vegas resident and the third-highest winning Jeopardy! contestant of all time, James Holzhauer, aka Jeopardy James, will challenge G2E attendees in Jeopardy!, three questions at a time. Participants will play for bragging rights and Jeopardy! Slots-themed giveaways. Each contestant will stand behind an iconic Jeopardy! podium and have an opportunity to pose for pictures with the game show legend.
