Delaware North has announced it will terminate its partnership with Miomni Gaming after a dispute delayed its two casinos to launch sports betting in West Virginia.
US.- West Virginia was one of the first states to legalise sports betting after PASPA got revoked. However, Delaware North hasn’t been able to launch the modality in its two casinos due to a dispute related to partner Miomni Gaming.
The conflict with the management company has hurt the casino operator, which hasn’t began operating yet. That forced it to sit out of the NCAA basketball tournament, in which Americans are projected to bet US$8.5 billion.
Delaware North informed the West Virginia Lottery Commission that it is taking steps to terminate its partnership with Miomni Gaming.
The casinos’ owner explained its technology platform provider (Miomni Gaming) “encountered a contract dispute with a third-party technology supplier.” That forced them to suspend their operations in both Wheeling Island and Mardi Gras casinos.
The contract dispute
The casinos’ owner explained its technology platform provider (Miomni Gaming) “encountered a contract dispute with a third-party technology supplier,” which forced them to suspend their operations.
The casino owner had apologised for suspending operations. However, it clarified they’d be “honoring and redeeming all resulted bets and are working to determine a timeframe to restoration.”
It still remains unknown what type of legal issue has forced the parties to decide to suspend taking sports wagers.
