Meruelo Gaming signs sports betting arrangement with IGT

International Game Technology has partnered with Meruelo Gaming, an affiliate of the Sahara Las Vegas and Grand Sierra Resorts in Reno, Nevada, and the Arizona Coyotes, to offer sports betting. Meruelo Gaming will use IGT’s trading advisory services and PlaySports technology to power Arizona’s SaharaBets statewide mobile sports betting app.

Muruelo Gaming – IGT Deal

Meruelo Gaming partnered with the Arizona Coyotes last week to create SaharaBets, recognizing the NHL organization as the official sports betting partner ahead of the platform’s launch.

“IGT SaharaBets’ ideal sports betting development partner in Arizona is IGT SaharaBets, with its scalable PlaySports technology, turnkey services, capabilities, and extensive sports betting experience,” stated Alex Meruelo, Meruelo Group President & CEO.

Quotes from the Press Release

“Given Alex Meruelo’s success in transforming the Grand Sierra Resort into the vibrant, successful casino it is today, and all the positive changes he initiated with the Sahara on the Las Vegas Strip, I’m excited to see what he does in Arizona as the owner of a professional sports team with its own sportsbook,” said Joe Asher, IGT’s president of sports betting.

“I’m overjoyed that Alex chose to collaborate with IGT to provide the necessary hardware, software, and trading services. Offering pre- and in-game wagering to Arizona Coyotes fans online would increase fan engagement and add to the already contagious enthusiasm generated by each play on the ice.”
