SBTech, a leading provider of interactive sports betting solutions and services to traditional and regulated markets, has announced an exclusive new deal with Casino Iveria, one of the largest land-based casino operator in Georgia.
The deal encompasses a wide range of sports betting offerings that SBTech will be providing for Casino Iveria, positioning itself as one of the leading providers of turnkey sports betting solutions for land-based casinos and betting shops operations in Europe. Now that SBTech is working with a Georgia-based casino, you can start adding the eastern European market to that list.
“We are delighted to have Casino Iveria, which is one of the biggest land-based casinos in Georgia, as our exclusive partner for the regulated Georgian market,” says Itai Zak, SBTech’s CEO.
Likewise, Temur Lomadze, Head of Operations at Casino Iveria, was also excited about the opportunity to work with an industry leader in its hope to extend its land-based business into the online and mobile mediums, while also possessing an extensive knowledge of how the entire industry – be it land-based or online – works.
“SBTech quite literally ticks all the right boxes for us, because they bring an amazing offering to the table, as well as the experience, expertise and proven track record that comes from working in other tightly regulated markets,” he said.
While this piece of news should make all parties involved extremely happy, the same can’t be said for two Atlantic City casinos that have a lot to answer for after being slapped with around $200,000 in fines stemming from a number of gambling violations.
The former, in particular, was levied with a $105,000 fine after it was caught allowing individuals that have been on their self-exclusion list to sneak inside and turn the phrase “self-exclusion” to a moot point. On top of that, the casino also allowed an underage patron to gamble, and last but not least, not having enough security personnel on their grounds. Meanwhile, the Trump Taj Mahal Casino was slapped with a $91,000 fine for playing with unshuffled cards in a mini-baccarat game for 3-and-a-half hours.
The offending casinos have since taken responsibility for the violations and are in the process of taking “appropriate measures” to ensure that these violations don’t happen again. And by “appropriate measures”, we’re venturing a guess that some heads are about to roll, figuratively, of course.
