Casino Del Sol has partnered with Scientific Games to power its first ever sportsbook, SolSports.
As part of the agreement, Scientific Games will deploy its full OpenSports platform solution with Casino Del Sol, an enterprise of the Pascua Yaqui Tribe, in Tucson, Arizona.
Kimberly Van Amburg, CEO of Casino Del Sol, commented: “In launching our first sportsbook, we partnered with Scientific Games due to their technical expertise.
“The OpenSports solution is a robust and scalable platform that can withstand all the pressures associated with major sporting events, while providing customers with an extensive range of markets.
“We are confident our guests will enjoy the new SolSports sportsbook and we can’t wait to go live later this year.”
The agreement will see wagering on sporting events available at a retail sportsbook on site at Casino Del Sol, as well as self-service sports betting kiosks located throughout the casino and at its sister property, Casino of the Sun.
Furthermore, Casino Del Sol and Casino of the Sun will gain access to the full sports betting offering combining the performance of the OpenBet engine with the versatility of OpenTrade, the full risk and liability management service powered by Don Best Sports.
The two casinos will allow players to place wagers on the wide range of sports betting markets offered by OpenSports, while providing the operators with a platform that has a proud history of performing at the highest levels during the biggest sporting events across the globe.
Cathryn Lai, SVP & GM US, Digital at Scientific Games, added: “Casino Del Sol and Casino of the Sun have both worked tirelessly to become leading casinos in Arizona and we are sure this new partnership can go from strength to strength in the newly regulated state.
“We believe Arizona’s sports betting market will grow rapidly in size and we look forward to providing customers with a first-class offering.”
The partnership is the latest addition to Scientific Games’ growing network of tribal customers across North America and the company’s first market entry into Arizona, following the legalisation of sports betting in the state in April 2021.
