| By Richard Mulligan
International Game Technology (IGT) has expanded its presence in the fledgling Arizona sports betting market by powering the new SaharaBets betting service.
IGT has partnered with Meruelo Gaming, SaharaBets’ owner, to supply its trading advisory services and PlaySports technology to the statewide mobile sports betting app.
SaharaBets launched in Arizona this week just days after being announced as a partner of the Arizona Coyotes NHL team. Meruelo Gaming, an affiliate of the Sahara Las Vegas resort and Grand Sierra Resort in Reno, is led by Alex Meruelo, who is also the owner of the Coyotes.
