Ute Mountain Casino to Open Sportsbook with IGT's Playsports Platform

TOWAOC, Colo. (August 23, 2021) – Ute Mountain Casino Hotel has announced its plan to open the first-ever retail sportsbook powered by IGT’s market-leading PlaySports platform within the Four Corners on August 24. Located beside the front entrance of the main casino floor, the Ute Mountain Sportsbook will lead the way for Colorado’s sports betting industry and establish a beachhead for the UteBet mobile app.

“This passion project has been our best-kept secret over the past year, as we’ve persevered through the global pandemic and brought together all the moving parts in order to make this happen,” said General Manager, Rick Scheer. “On August 24 we will make history as we open the doors to our first-ever Sportsbook.”

Led by Jay Petrick, Sportsbook Manager, the Ute Mountain Sportsbook will surround guests with sixteen 55” LED screens and a dominating 98” LED screen to display featured events and odds. Positioned in the center of the venue exists a relaxed seating area with over 25 spots available for reservations. Players will have access to three operated betting stations, four self-serving kiosks and a designated cage for large bets.

“Our goal is to create the ultimate betting experience by fusing the world-class services provided by IGT with the local essence of the Ute Mountain Ute Tribe,” said Petrick.
