Rhode Island Lottery Director Gerry Aubin gave a one-year recap on the launch of sports betting in Rhode Island.
“While the lottery is the major partner in our sportsbook, we cannot match the 80+ year’s sports betting experience that William Hill and IGT bring to the table,” said Aubin. “Therefore it was important that customers understand that this was a real sportsbook with tried and tested technology and seasoned, professional traders. I think the name ‘Sportsbook Rhode Island’ helps to convey the message that this was a full service sportsbook (along with the Powered By–William Hill message). Add it together with the backing of the lottery and our reputation and experience and it makes it a slam dunk for the sports betting customer.”Rhode Island Sports Betting_Gerry Aubin_Rhode Island Lottery
