“We look forward to seeing OpenSports further engage our players with the sleek user experience and high transaction volume we’ve come to expect.”
Scientific Games are planning to expand on this by bringing mobile sports betting to Caesars’ Indiana properties as regulations allow. They also plan to launch mobile solutions in Pennsylvania and Iowa before the end of the year.
