Scientific Games Corporation and Caesars have enhanced their partnership, after a successful launch of sports betting at Harrah’s Philadelphia Casino and Racetrack.

Powered by the company’s OpenBet platform it allows bettors to utilise “world-class sports betting retail solutions,” with the duo also commenting that online and mobile sports betting solutions are set to follow within this year’s first quarter.

Christian Stuart, executive vice president of gaming and interactive entertainment at Caesars, stressed that the launch represents a joint commitment to bringing the best sports betting solution to players across regulated markets: “We’re excited to open The Book, which allows our players to wager on their favourite professional and college sports events, at the region’s most complete game-changing sports betting experience.

“We’ve worked seamlessly with Scientific Games to cement our sportsbook presence in new markets with great speed, and we’re excited to usher in a new era of sports betting capabilities for Pennsylvania players at Caesars.”

In a media statement it was detailed that the Pennsylvania sportsbook features a wide range of betting options, including professional and college sports coverage for football, basketball, baseball, hockey, soccer, golf and more, designed to appeal to both new and experienced bettors alike.

Adding an element of further depth to the Caesars sportsbook experience, Scientific Games is to also provide ongoing managed trading services from its Don Best group, “powering continuous evolution of the platform’s pricing and data feeds”.

Jordan Levin, executive vice president and group chief executive of digital at Scientific Games, commented: “This is the third state in which we’ve launched sports betting with Caesars, following in the footsteps of New Jersey and Mississippi, and we’re thrilled to see constant growth in our partnership.

“Sports betting builds more momentum every day, and we’re proud to partner with Caesars to lead the charge and provide a top-notch solution to players in Pennsylvania.”
