It’s all very, very busy in the state of Mississippi this month as the sports betting operations begin to heat up and rev their engines in anticipation of take-off…

Big Names Coming In

Five Mississippi casinos have already announced the coming of Penn National who will provide their sportsbook there and now another industry giant will be entering this state’s market – with the help of another…

…Caesars Entertainment will be launching their very own sportsbook at two Mississippi casinos in cooperation with game developer and platform supplier, Scientific Games – more specifically, their SG Digital branch.

The two companies have previously announced that their partnership will expand into the thriving state of New Jersey, where Caesars is already partaking. In Mississippi, however, their services will be deployed in Caesars’ Horseshoe Tunica Hotel & Casino and Harrah’s Gulf Coast Hotel & Casino.

SG Digital will be providing the sportsbook to both venues via its OpenBet suite.

Let the Games Begin

Scientific Games has been also quite busy over the summer, with the launch of their virtual sports in Pennsylvania and their sports betting platform going live in Delaware. They’ve also reached an agreement by which they will be supplying instant games to the New Mexico Lottery.

SG Digital’s chief technology officer, Chris Armes, commented: “The launch of sports betting in Mississippi is not only a great step forward in our partnership with Caesars, but also a testament to our commitment to speed to market delivery, as we pivot our business to stay agile and adaptable. The deployment of Caesars sportsbooks has been one of the fastest ever deployments of our platform. Our cross-functional teams across the globe worked tirelessly from commercial sign-off through to go-live.”
