THE AMELCO USA SPORTSBOOK APP
The advantages of using Amelco USA’s sports wagering platform are clear. The Internet provides the opportunity to tap into new sources of revenue outside of traditional in-person terminals and betting kiosks. Embracing this interactive sales channel creates the possibility for land-based casinos to target new and younger demographic segments of players, successfully compete with other casino operators, increase revenues, and establish solid market share with a connected, branded experience that leverages the equity of the existing casino operation. The Amelco USA Quantum technology platform provides a unique opportunity for casino operators to learn about players’ preferences and gaming behavior. It also gives land-based casinos access to valuable demographic information that is useful for market research and business intelligence purposes. Being able to reach the player in action, is a powerful marketing tool allowing for various cross-promotion initiatives and targeted communication. Finally, and perhaps most importantly for many land-based casinos, Amelco USA’s sportsbook platform supports all known responsible gaming policies.
