IGT’s online sportsbook machine game is a new way for patrons to place wagers on sports events in casinos and bars. It’s a betting terminal in a box that can be positioned to be a standalone unit, or embedded within a bar. Patrons will be able to credit the kiosk with funds from their online account by scanning their membership card (where applicable). This will enable players to manage their wagers at the sportsbook and at home. Kiosks can also display ‘hot numbers’ or ‘trending markets’, aiming to encourage betters to bet in more complex markets that will improve their chances of winning.
It works much like a slot machine. When you deposit PS1 and spin, a random-number generator determines whether the reels will stop in your favour.
