The deal between the firm and the venue follows the opening of its sportsbook operations.
US.- US Integrity has announced a comprehensive partnership with Northern Quest Resort & Casino, in Washington. The deal follows the opening of the venue´s sportsbook operations on its main casino floor in December.
Initially, guests will have two options for placing sports wagers at the venue. Players may wager on retail counters and kiosks with Northern Quest planning to bring mobile sports betting online in the spring of 2022.
In 2021, the Kalispel Tribe of Indians in Washington reached a deal with state gambling officials to launch sports betting operations at its Northern Quest Resort. The sportsbook launch comes after years of negotiations, research and preparation.
USI will provide integrity monitoring services via its proprietary dashboard to Northern Quest. It will also conduct analysis across dozens of data sets to proactively identify irregular contest-level, officiating and wagering patterns.
Matthew Holt, USI’s CEO and co-founder said: “US Integrity is proud to partner with Northern Quest and assist in their expansion of regulated sports wagering in Washington. USI’s mission is to provide conflict-free, best in class insights and compliance solutions to our clients.
“We are looking forward to working with the exceptional team at Northern Quest. Their commitment to instilling the highest integrity standards align with USI’s initiative to ensure that sports wagering remains fair and safe.”
Kevin Zenishek, Northern Quest’s Executive Director of Casino Operations added: “We are extremely excited to be working with US Integrity as we roll out regulated sports betting at our brand-new sportsbook.
“We have worked hard throughout the legislative process to advocate for Washington state tribes, ensuring that sports wagering is brought to the market in a legal and responsible way.
“While we already have the expertise and infrastructure to effectively operate and regulate sports betting, the partnership with US Integrity will give us the ability to identify possible betting abnormalities in real time, and enable potentially suspicious wagering activity to be identified immediately, creating a safe, fun betting environment for our guests.”
In July, Governor Jay Inslee approved tribal deals to allow sports betting in Washington state’s casinos. Gov. Inslee approved agreements with 15 tribes while another tribe was okayed by the state Gambling Commission.
