Global gaming organisation International Game Technology has announced a new five year contract with Penn Online Entertainment, relating to digital platform and content provisions for the Pennsylvanian market.

The subsidiary of Penn National Gaming’s Penn Interactive Ventures arm is to be boosted by the IGT PlayDigital division supplying its full suite of digital gaming products.

It is hoped that the PlayDigital solutions deployment for Penn National, within the newly regulated Pennsylvania online gaming market, is to be undertaken during the first quarter of next year.

Chris Sheffield, managing director of PIV and senior vice president of PNG, commented: “We’re excited to leverage IGT’s platform and content for our online gaming launch in Pennsylvania.

“The flexibility and reliability of the PlayCommand platform, coupled with the proven game library within IGT’s PlayCasino, give us confidence that will deliver the same caliber of world-class gaming entertainment that our players have come to love in our land-based casinos.”

The organisation is to also leverage IGT’s PlayCasino, to provide its players with an extensive library of slot games such as Wheel of Fortune, Elephant King, Ocean Magic and Cleopatra, in addition to Penn National also agreeing to deploy IGT’s PlayBingo and PlayPoker online solutions.

“IGT PlayDigital’s vast portfolio of proven digital solutions enables us to quickly address our customers’ needs across online gaming, sports betting and on-premise mobile gaming,” added Enrico Drago, IGT senior vice president of PlayDigital. “The newly regulated Pennsylvania online gaming market presents an exciting opportunity for IGT to extend the success of our PlayCommand platform, and PlayCasino to Penn National as it expands the scope of its entertainment offering.”

This comes in the immediate aftermath of a further agreement relating to PNG’s HollywoodCasino portal, which will see NetEnt deliver its suite of titles to the state’s players when the market goes live.
