International Game Technology PLC (IGT) will boost its momentum in the growing U.S. sports betting market through a multi-year agreement with FanDuel Group, a leading sports betting and i-gaming provider.
Under the terms of the agreement, IGT’s PlaySports platform will power all of FanDuel Group’s new and existing retail FanDuel Sportsbooks across the U.S. through September 2024, according to a press release.
