Wildwood Casino recruits ISI to assist sports betting introduction

Colorado’s Wildwood Casino has rolled-out a definitive agreement with ISI Race & Sports to provide hardware, software and marketing services for the property’s upcoming sports betting offering.

Subject to final licensing approval to be issued to ISI from the Colorado Division of Gaming, the potential roll-out becomes the entities latest development after opening in 2008.

The American Gaming Group owned casino, located in Cripple Creek, also boasts over 500-slot machines, 14 table games, and is currently in the process of building a 102-room hotel that is anticipated to open by the end of 2020.

“Wildwood has become the market leader for casinos in Cripple Creek and we wanted a partner who could help us achieve the same status for retail and online sports betting,” stated Joseph Canfora, CEO of AGG.  

“We are able to combine our extensive knowledge of the local Colorado market with ISI’s 20 years offering sports betting services and the Amelco betting platform and native mobile apps to create a winning experience for our customers.”

ISI, which has developed kiosk solutions including those used by William Hill in Nevada and the new crystal betting terminal being launched by IGT, sees its betting platform and native mobile apps provided by Amelco

“We are very excited about the opportunity to help bring sports betting to Colorado,” said Bill Stearns, President of ISI. “We’ve been doing this for more than 20 years and have developed best practices that help our partners get out of the gate early and maintain their lead in sports betting.”

Earlier this month Wildwood Casino shutdown due to the rapidly spreading coronavirus pandemic, after Governor Jared Polis ordered all casinos, bars, and restaurants to close for 30 days.

Posting an update on its website, it was said: “Wildwood very much supports all health and safety efforts. As such, we will be closing overnight, tonight, March 17th, 2020 at 2am.

“We thank all of our guests for their wonderful support of Wildwood, and wish all of you to be safe and careful during this difficult time.”
