IGT to Enhance its VIP Experience for Players
Pearl River Resort is known for being a gaming resort that is operated by the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians that is federally recognized. This year, Pearl River Resort is upping its VIP experience through its partnership with IGT.
Two land-based enterprises under the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians are the Golden Moon Casino and the Silver Star Casino located in Philadelphia, Mississippi. These are where IGT’s new technology is set to launch this year.
IGT’s CrystalBetting Terminal is the new technology that VIP players of both casinos will experience for the first time. The terminals are currently going through its 90-day field trial. All terminals are now secured with GLI certification.
IGT is known to be a global leader when it comes to gaming technologies. It provides an innovative gaming experience through all gaming sectors and channels. It is known to leverage the wealth of premium content through regulated segments that include gaming machines and digital gaming.
According to Neal Atkinson, Pearl River Resort’s director of table games, the gaming resort is proud to partner with IGT when it comes to the launch of its new terminal that has been named as one of the top 20 most innovative gaming technology according to Casino Journal.
“We prioritize being on the forefront of sports betting innovation and providing our players choice and convenience for placing sports bets at our properties. Extending our sports betting offering to include IGT’s CrystalBetting Terminals elevates the player experience and gives our patrons yet another reason to choose Pearl River Resort for gaming entertainment,” Atkinson added.
Surely, the partnership would ensure that the resort will continue to engage sports fans in different ways and with different offerings.
Nick Khin, IGT’s chief Commercial Officer also said, “IGT’s sports betting momentum in the U.S. market, paired with the player insights that we gained while testing the CrystalBetting Terminal, reinforce our confidence in the product’s capacity to deliver a compelling player experience that complements the entire IGT sports betting technology ecosystem.”
Khin also noted, “By adding the CrystalBetting Terminal to its already impressive sports betting offering, Pearl River Resort is positioned to engage sports fans in new ways and to differentiate its offering.”
The CrystalBetting Terminal just makes sports betting a more serious kind of game and hobby. It appears as one of those arcade boxes with its 27-inch monitor and privacy wing features. It will make its players feel that they’re in an actual work station.
The monitor can display live sporting events and allow the players to place their bets before and during the game. This terminal makes it convenient for in-game bettors to place their bets as fast as possible. Most of the time, in-play wagering can get a bit tricky because odds are changing every few minutes and this could help make things easier for the bettors.
Fans of football, basketball, rugby, and cricket betting can experience the terminal’s other features like the personal listening audio jack, USB charging port, and extended button deck that allows players to have enough room for their things and even food.
The terminal offers comfort and players could spend hours in front of this. If a player is a fan of more than one sport, he or she can stream multiple live games at the same time. Placing bets won’t even have to disrupt their sports viewing experience.
There is also no need for the players to go to the counter to be able to place their bets with cash as the terminals could accept cash directly. Its ergonomic design makes the long stay of players easily comfortable and private.
This terminal could well be the future of land-based sports betting. It’s something that has never been offered to sports betting fans and using the terminals alone can be quite an experience.
“Extending our sports betting offering to include IGT’s CrystalBetting Terminals elevates the player experience, and gives our patrons yet another reason to choose Pearl River Resort for gaming entertainment.” Atkinson is very positive about what these terminals could bring to their resorts.
Pearl River Resort is known to have made the gaming history in 2018 when it became the first non-Nevada tribal casino to open a sportsbook after the Supreme Court of the United States made a decision and repealed the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) of 1992.
Opening its first sportsbook didn’t stop the resort from innovating and improving the experience of their players. They quickly expanded and started to odder self-service PlaySports Kiosks and mobile on-premise wagering. IGT’s new terminal just ensures that the resort won’t stop innovating its services.
