Keystone State’s largest casino property offers patrons 45 Kambi-powered betting kiosks, seven live teller windows and bring-your-own-device technology

 

Kambi has expanded its American footprint with the launch of its on-property Sportsbook within the largest gaming property in Pennsylvania, the Greenwood Gaming and Entertainment-owned Parx Casino.

Following a thorough two-day testing phase, the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) has given Kambi and Parx Casino the green light to officially open the sportsbook on 10 January – a decision which means Kambi now powers three of the state’s four live sportsbooks.

The Parx Casino sportsbook opening comes ahead of a busy weekend of sporting action, which climaxes on Sunday evening with local NFL side and reigning Super Bowl champions Philadelphia Eagles travelling to current Super Bowl favourites New Orleans Saints.

As well as being able to watch the game at the sportsbook, patrons can place their bets via seven teller windows or at any of the 45 Kambi-powered betting kiosks located within the sportsbook space, throughout the casino floor and in the Parx Poker Room.

Further, Parx has leveraged Kambi’s innovative Bring Your Own Device technology to launch Betslip Builder – a mobile app which enables players to fill out their bet slip when on the move and create a QR code to be scanned prior to reaching a cashier. Betslip Builder will streamline the bet placement process during busy periods and fast moving games.

With the Parx Casino sportsbook up and running, attention turns to launching additional Kambi-powered sportsbooks at Greenwood Gaming and Entertainment’s South Philadelphia Turf Club and Valley Forge Turf Club, with the former expected to be ready for regulatory testing next week.

In addition, a Parx-branded online sportsbook will be launched as and when the PGCB elects to fire the starting gun on mobile wagering in the state.
Max Meltzer, Kambi Chief Commercial Officer, said: “We’re very excited to have launched our on-property sportsbook at Parx Casino, a brand which shares our commitment to providing unique and exciting wagering experiences to players.

“Today’s unveiling marks Kambi’s fourth bricks and mortar sportsbook launch in less than three months and cements our position as the leading online and on-property sportsbook supplier in the burgeoning US market.”

Matthew Cullen, Senior VP of Interactive Gaming and Sports at Parx Casino, said: “Parx Casino is thrilled to launch legalised sports betting on property this week, and to do so with such a high-quality product from Kambi is particularly exciting.

“Parx is expanding its portfolio of offerings to give patrons the absolute best of all types of legalised gaming, and sports wagering is just the latest stage in enhancing our customer offering.”

Red Rake Gaming (Red Rake), a leading online casino games supplier, has entered into their first agreement as games supplier to the social casino industry. Thanks to this deal, Wind Creek Hospitality (WCH), an authority of the Poarch Band of Creek Indians, will have access to the full portfolio of Red Rake Gaming games.

WCH operates several gaming facilities in Alabama, Pennsylvania, Nevada, Aruba and Curacao, and offers online social casino games to its customers. Red Rake’s offering, which consists of slots, video bingo and table games will be available for the WCH social casino customers in the coming weeks.

Although WCH is the first social casino customer in Red Rake’s history, this is not the first step of the Spanish supplier in the social casino industry, as they have been developing and operating social casino games for almost a decade.

Nick Barr, Managing Director of Red Rake Malta, commented on the deal: “We are honoured to work alongside Wind Creek in their social casino business. This a significant step for us, because not only is this our first partner in the social casino industry as a B2B entity, but also because it is the foundation of what we expect to be another great regulated market for us in terms of real money. We anticipate a great partnership with Wind Creek for many years to come”

Ron Nesbitt, WCH Vice President of Game Operations, added: “Our social gaming site, WindCreekCasino.com, provides our customers an engaging and interactive experience that has proven to be an excellent retention tool for us over the years. We are delighted to enhance our offering with the addition of Red Rake Gaming content. The games provided are very strong, with high quality graphics, action packed feature games, and immersive bonus rounds. Combined with our top-notch rewards program, Red Rake’s game offerings will help us ensure a fantastic player experience.”

Tim Wilmott has retired from the American Gaming Association as its chairman. The legalisation and expansion of sports betting has been a key marker of Wilmott’s term.

He told AGA members: “Once PASPA happened everything changed,” referring to a Supreme Court ruling that overturned a ban on sports betting. Since then, 13 states so far have launched legalised sports betting operations in casinos, racetracks and on mobile devices.

Wilmott, CEO of casino company Penn National Gaming, said the industry’s relations with the government had become even more important with the advent of sports betting. A bill seeking federal sports betting control is now in the Senate.

Wilmott said that during his tenure and that of his previous chairman, the profile of AGA membership had changed and it had broadened as a result of work headed by CEO Bill Miller and his predecessor.

He was speaking to members at the conclusion of the 2019 G2E trade show that had attracted 30,000 gaming professionals to Las Vegas.
