IGT is making sports betting more accessible to casino players with the launch of its new PeakBar Top gaming machines in two St. Croix Casinos in Wisconsin, USA.
PeakBar Top cabinets with sports betting made their global casino debut at St. Croix Casino in Turtle Lake and St. Croix Casino in Danbury, allowing players to sit in a bar environment and enjoy their choice of IGT video poker, slots, keno games and sports betting on the same cabinet and with the same gaming wallet.
St. Croix Casino General Manager, Loren Benjamin, says: “We are thrilled that St. Croix Casinos are the first gaming venues in the world to offer IGT’s PeakBar Top with sports betting via the Total Gaming software bundle and to delight our players with such a transformative product.
“IGT video poker has been a mainstay of St. Croix Casinos for decades and our recently opened IGT PlaySports-powered sportsbooks have already started driving new player acquisition and engagement.”
IGT’s President of Sports Betting, Joe Asher, adds: “I am excited that IGT’s PeakBar Top with sports betting has launched at St. Croix Casinos. I have been wanting sports betting on a Game King bartop machine for many years.
“It is finally here and now customers can sit at the bar, watch the game on TV, play video poker and bet on sports. There is no doubt that adding a sports betting vertical to IGT’s PeakBar Top cabinet is going to be a winner.”
