South Dakota and New Jersey sharing interstate gaming network

April 24, 2014

International Game Technology (IGT), one of the most relevant firms in the gaming industry, is now officially the first one to create the US gaming network. IGT has launched the first commercial gaming network in the United States that has connected two of the gambling states in the country, South Dakota and New Jersey. The multi state Wide Area Progressive (WAP) is in essence a jackpot network in the US that works as the first interstate connection between different casinos from both New Jersey and South Dakota. This new step in the US gambling market, the US jackpot network, has received the name of Powerbucks and it is already a success after accomplishing the first connection between New Jersey and South Dakota. IGT's gaming network has been conceived to connect progressive pools between the gaming operators and their online gambling and wagering sites. This has been, without doubt, one of the most important steps in the gambling market in the United States as, right now, South Dakota's Deadwood (the famous gambling boulevard of the US state) and New Jersey's Atlantic City (the second biggest gambling boulevard in the US), are both connected.

On New Jersey, Atlantic City has connected Caesars Entertainment and Boyd Gaming to Powerbucks, something that we already knew from iGaming Business when the company posted online. Both have approved Nevada as the next US state to join the multi state Wide Area Progressive network. The vice president of IGT's product management and global product development division, Joe Sigrist, has said: "Linking the Deadwood, South Dakota, properties and New Jersey properties with Powerbucks is an exciting occasion. Bringing industry-first innovation and truly transformative gaming experiences to the players who crave it, is at the core of what IGT does. The company looks forward to the expansion of Powerbucks and creating jackpot mania like never before."

The gambling firm, International Game Technology (IGT), is also now appointing new general manager for its Double Down Interactive social gaming division. Will Daugherty, soon becoming new G.M. for IGT's social media gaming branch, comes from the Amazon Payments division where he served as vice president; his career has led him to be part of the most important international firms such as Expedia and AT&T Wireless. Patti Hart, CEO for IGT, said: "Having a seasoned executive with a strong background in e-commerce and mobile will add valuable experience as we take Double Down to the next level."
