Scientific Games has confirmed its launch with Caesars Entertainment in Indiana, becoming the first supplier to accept sports wagers in the state on 1 September.
The partnership offers retail sportsbook operations at the Indiana Grand Racing & Casino in Shelbyville, which is the fifth state Scientific Games and Caesars’ agreement has now extended to.
Six more Caesars properties are slated to launch in September, while Indiana Grand Racing & Casino is using Scientific Games’ OpenSports solution.
Christian Stuart, EVP of Gaming and Interactive Entertainment at Caesars, said: "We look forward to seeing OpenSports further engage our players with the sleek user experience and high transaction volume we've come to expect."
Scientific Games also plans to bring mobile sports betting to Caesars' Indiana properties as regulations allow and to launch mobile solutions in Pennsylvania and Iowa before the end of the year.
Caesars has expanded its sports betting operations to seven states, totalling 29 locations by the end of September.
