LAS VEGAS – May 30, 2019 – Scientific Games Corporation (NASDAQ: SGMS) (“Scientific Games” or the “Company”) and the Oneida Indian Nation have received a favorable National Indian Gaming Commission (NIGC) determination on their sports betting partnership. Announced in January, the deal will see Scientific Games provide its OpenSports technology to the Oneida Indian Nation’s three properties—Turning Stone Resort Casino, Yellow Brick Road Casino, and Point Place Casino– upon the launch of New York’s sports betting market, anticipated later this year.
Ray Halbritter, Oneida Indian Nation Representative and Nation Enterprises CEO, said, “We are proud that we will be among the first Indian nations nationally to offer sports betting, and we appreciate NIGC’s review and approval of our partnership with Scientific Games. Our partnership with Scientific Games and SG Digital will give our guests an incredible sports betting experience while providing our properties a strong foundation to grow this market in New York.”
Jordan Levin, Group Chief Executive of SG Digital, said, “We’re making great strides in preparing for the New York market to go live with sports betting, and we’re honored to work with the Oneida Indian Nation to activate our proven sports betting solution. Being part of the first sports betting partnership to receive a favourable NIGC determination is a significant milestone that will set both Scientific Games and Oneida up for ongoing success. We look forward to implementing our OpenSports solution for Oneida as we gear up for expansion into New York.”
