Scientific Games, under the auspices of its SG Digital division, has announced successful completion in Mississippi of pre-compliance testing of its OpenBet Sportsbook Retail Platform under that state’s Gaming Commission's proposed sports and race pool regulation.
The First Pass Pre-Compliance Evaluation confirmed that SG Digital's retail point-of-sale terminal and administrative backend systems that support OpenBet fulfill proposed regulatory expectations. The initial approval means a full review of the OpenBet functionality can move forward.
Keith O'Loughlin, a senior vice-president at SG Digital, said, "As legalized sports betting spreads across the states, we're taking every step to provide a seamless transition for our partners. Speed is of the essence, and this pre-compliance review positions us as a partner of choice for operators seeking industry-leading turnkey sportsbook solutions across land-based, online and mobile channels."
Scientific Games, as the current lottery management vendor in Delaware, is overseeing that state’s now up-and-running sportsbook operation at the state’s horseracing tracks. William Hill, the international betting concern, is serving as “risk manager” and Stadium Technology, the leading sports betting provider in Nevada is providing the betting platform in Delaware.
