(PRESS RELEASE) -- International Game Technology PLC announced today that it will expand its sports betting footprint in Washington State via a multi-year agreement with Kalispel Tribal Economic Authority, an instrumentality of the Kalispel Tribe of Indians who owns and operates Kalispel Casino
in Cusick, Wash. Under the terms of the agreement, Kalispel Casino will leverage IGT's PlaySports technology and trading advisory services to power its soon-to-open retail sportsbook.
This is IGT's second sports betting venture in Washington State with the Kalispel Tribe of Indians. In Dec. 2021, IGT deployed its PlaySports technology and trading advisory services at the Turf Club Sportsbook in Northern Quest Resort & Casino in Airway Heights, Wash.
"We're excited to roll out sports betting for our guests at Kalispel Casino," said Kevin Zenishek, Northern Quest Resort & Casino and Kalispel Casino, Executive Director of Casino Operations. "It has already proven to be a fantastic new amenity at Northern Quest and we know it will be popular at our Kalispel Casino as well."
"IGT is pleased to build on our sports betting momentum in Washington State and bolster our long-standing partnership with the Kalispel Tribe of Indians by powering sports betting at Kalispel Casino," said Joe Asher, IGT President of Sports Betting. "We look forward to bringing a great sports betting experience to the Kalispel Casino so that our long-time partner can further engage its customers."
