Golden Nugget adds sports betting to Scientific Games deal

Leading US casino operator Golden Nugget has chosen to utilise the full OpenSports product suite from Scientific Games including managed trading services from Don Best Sports.

The deployment of OpenSports will start with mobile sports betting in New Jersey, while additional states will be included pending regulation.

There is also an option to roll out OpenSports in retail locations across multiple states including New Jersey, Mississippi and Nevada.

Meanwhile, building on an existing long-term partnership Scientific Games will continue to provide igaming services to Golden Nugget across multiple states through to 2024 and potentially beyond.

Golden Nugget will benefit from the Open Gaming System content aggregation platform and portal, initially in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, as well as a player account management solution.

Jordan Levin, Group Chief Executive, Digital for Scientific Games, said: “Following Golden Nugget’s transition to our solutions, we look forward to launching Sports on top of our long-standing player account and iGaming relationship.

“Golden Nugget has a wide player base across the U.S., having pioneered the iGaming space in New Jersey from its earliest days, and we’re excited to power their sports betting and iGaming presence, providing a seamless and reliable end-to-end betting experience.”

Thomas Winter, Senior Vice President and General Manager for Online Gaming for Golden Nugget, added: “We have a long history with Scientific Games, and their technology is a cornerstone of our sports betting and iGaming strategy.

“We’re thrilled to continue working with them to bring a consistent and best-in-class experience to our players across multiple products, nationwide.”
