GAN to power Station Casinos’ retail & online sports betting in Nevada

GAN has signed a binding terms agreement that will see the group develop a ‘one-stop shop’ enterprise solution for Red Rock Resorts subsidiary Station Casinos’ retail and internet omnichannel Nevada-wide sports betting.

This will see the group build and deploy the infrastructure for Station’s ‘STN Sports’ online sports platform, mobile applications, and retail over-the-counter and kiosk-based sports betting throughout Nevada.

The agreement, which pertains to Red Rock Resort’s current portfolio of properties and projects in development, will see a commercial launch to take place subject to regulatory technical certification and related regulatory licensing, the latter of which the company has now commenced.

Dermot Smurfit, CEO of GAN, commented: “After a comprehensive and competitive process, we are greatly pleased to secure our first major US retail casino operator client of our omnichannel sports betting technology and managed trading services solution acquired at the outset of the year and demonstrated at G2E earlier this month. 

“The GAN team worldwide is excited to enter the US sports’ market next year with a market leader in Nevada.”

The latest extension of GAN’s Gamestack tech platform continues a long-standing relationship between the two companies, which launched via the debut of simulated gaming in 2017.

This was principally designed to serve social casino gaming to loyalty reward card-holding patrons of Station’s 19 retail casino properties in Nevada.

Thomas Mikulich, senior vice president of innovation and slots of Station Casinos, added: “The choice of GAN reflects their proven technology platform, specialist experience with integrating reward programs, reputation for integrity and their exciting sports betting user experience across online and retail devices, and their overall commitment. 

“We look forward to collaborating closely with GAN to roll out their innovative sports experience here in Nevada.”
