Betgenius selected to provide pricing for first tribal sportsbook outside of Nevada

Provider to manage risk at two properties in the state with plans to launch online as well

Betgenius has been selected to provide pricing and risk management for two retail sportsbook owned by the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians.

The supplier’s pricing has been integrated into IGT technology at the two properties, with plans for on-premise mobile and online wagering in the pipeline.

It is the first major US sportsbook deal for Betgenius since its parent company Genius Sports was acquired by private equity funds, and the first time a tribal casino ahs launched betting outside of Nevada.

Under the agreement, Betgenius is delivering a complete sportsbook management solution, including live sports data feeds, price management for pre-game and in-play odds across all major US sports, as well as end-to-end price and risk management service.

“The legalisation of sports betting presents tribal casinos with a major opportunity to diversify their revenue streams and take a leading role in the fast-moving, tech-driven sector of sports betting,” said Jack Davison, chief commercial officer of Betgenius parent company Genius Sports Group.

“Through this partnership, we are extremely proud to play a role in enabling the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians to be the first tribal casino to do just that.”

Neal Atkinson, who oversees betting operations at the Pearl River Resorts casino, added: “We look forward to this partnership and are working with Betgenius to tailor their services for this exciting new Southern US sports betting market.”
