Scientific Games and Oneida Team Up For New York Sports Betting

As New York paves the way for the imminent launch of sports betting – a big opportunity the state missed out on in 2018 – operators and gambling companies are racing to make it in the city that never sleeps that will also be the single largest sports wagering market once it’s gone live.

Among the industry high-fliers that are taking their place under the New York Sun is Scientific Games – the omni-channel solution provider and developer of casino, lottery and social gaming systems has penned a multi-year content agreement with Oneida Indian Nation.

The minutiae of this deal say that Scientific will be delivering its OpenBet sportsbook technology to three casinos in upstate NY that belong to the Oneida tribe.

The First Among Indian Nations

The three casinos that will benefit from OpenBet sportsbook are Turning Stone Resort Casino, Yellow Brick Road Casino and Point Place Casino…

…they will launch the said systems as soon as New York authorizes sports betting in the state, which should happen in the coming months. OpenBet sportsbook, as used and implemented within these venues, will deploy SG Digital’s technology platform with player-centric technology and in-house pre-game and data feeds acquired from Don Best Sports.

Comments Oneida Indian Nation Representative and Nation Enterprises CEO, Ray Halbritter:

“Being among the first Indian nations nationally to operate a sportsbook, and among the first to offer sports betting in New York, represents our commitment to entering this burgeoning market ready for rapid acceleration.”

Platform Without Peers

He added that it was determined that Scientific Games and SG Digital are the ones to provide the best sports betting experience for their players, as with OpenBet, “their players will benefit from a fast-to-market, flexible and scalable platform.”

Halbritter hailed OpenBet platform for offering the “most intuitive and seamless US sportsbook experience” and that the team is already hard at work planning to capitalize on partnering with the industry top technology supplier.

“Simply put, the combination of our partnership with SG Digital and our previously announced alliance with Caesars Entertainment , positions us to win big in New York,” he concluded.

With New York poised to become one of the states with the largest sports betting revenue, Scientific Games aims to ensure that Oneida Indian Nation is able to offer all sports betting options from day one. Both companies hold a firm belief that market leaders are determined by top-notch player experiences built on reliable technology.

The fact that New York has not yet legalized sports betting gives Scientific and Oneida enough time to run all the necessary tests in order to launch the sportsbook with optimal performances.
