This story was published more than 4 years ago.

This week the Akwesasne Mohawk Casino Resort in Akwesane, New York announced that it has launched IGT's sportsbetting product, becoming the third casino to integrate the PlaySports platform in the Empire State.

The deal was facilitated with The Stars Group, who has a license to operate a retail product through the casino. The company decided to offload that to the IGT PlaySports platform, which will let visitors get in wagers on a variety of different sports. Both over the counter and kiosk wagers will be available at the casino.

Commenting on the deal Akwesasne Mohawk Casino Resort general manager Todd Papineau said, "With the addition of IGT's PlaySports technology, we can now offer our guests a world-class sports betting experience in addition to the slot, table, bingo, and poker games that our patrons already enjoy at Akwesasne Mohawk Casino.

"We're excited to work with IGT and benefit from the company's expertise and innovation."
