Scientific Games and US casino operator Golden Nugget have rolled-out an expansion of its ongoing igaming partnership, as well as adding sports wagering to the agreement.

Building on its long-term partnership, and lauded as a “multi-state, multi-product, multi-channel agreement,” the company will supply its solutions to Golden Nugget across numerous jurisdictions upto, and potentially beyond, 2024.

Jordan Levin, group chief executive of digital for Scientific Games, said of the expanded partnership: “Following Golden Nugget’s transition to our solutions, we look forward to launching sports on top of our long-standing player account and igaming relationship. 

“Golden Nugget has a wide player base across the US, having pioneered the igaming space in New Jersey from its earliest days, and we’re excited to power their sports betting and igaming presence, providing a seamless and reliable end-to-end betting experience.”

The deal sees Scientific Games supply its OpenGaming System across New Jersey and Pennsylvania, as well as further jurisdictions and legalisation spreads across the country. 

Golden Nugget is striving to further enhance its igaming presence via the OGS content aggregation platform, portal, and player account management solution.

Golden Nugget has also selected to utilise the full OpenSports product suite and managed trading services from Don Best Sports. The deployment of OpenSports will start with mobile sports betting in the Garden State, with additional regions to be incorporated as new states launch. 

The agreement also includes an option to roll out OpenSports in retail locations across multiple states, such as New Jersey, Mississippi and Nevada.

Thomas Winter, senior vice president and general manager of online gaming for Golden Nugget, said, “We have a long history with Scientific Games, and their technology is a cornerstone of our sports betting and igaming strategy. We’re thrilled to continue working with them to bring a consistent and best-in-class experience to our players across multiple products, nationwide.”
