International Game Technology, through its IGT Global Solutions Corporation subsidiary, and William Hill US have introduced enhanced versions of Rhode Island’s mobile app and website sportsbook offerings.
After initially inking in a deal to November 2018 alongside the Rhode Island Lottery to open New England’s first sportsbooks at Twin River Casino and Tiverton Casino, the first version of the region’s mobile app went live in September 2019.
Powered by the IGT PlaySports Technology and available via iOS, Android and sportsbetrhodeisland.com, Ocean State bettors can now utilise “a more streamlined experience featuring an elevated interface, an expanded wagering menu, and an additional way for patrons to fund their accounts”.
“Recent IGT PlaySports technology updates for the Rhode Island Lottery provide Sportsbook Rhode Island users an elevated player experience,” stated Enrico Drago, IGT PlayDigital senior vice president. “These updates also position the Rhode Island Lottery for success when professional sports return in full force.”
Sportsbook Rhode Island users can now wager on a wider selection of futures and prop bet options on a variety of sporting events, with the expanded wagering menu, powered by William Hill sportsbook, adjusted to accommodate the current pause of action.
“We are excited to continue to innovate with the Rhode Island Lottery and IGT. We are adding alternative sports and additional prop bets to our wagering menu now and look forward to supporting Rhode Island even more when sports return to the US,” added Ken Fuchs, William Hill US president of digital.
