One year ago, the GGB Podcast sat down with Charles Cohen and heard him talk about the potential for the IGT PlayDigital sports betting platform. This year, we hear about the successes that IGT has had across the U.S. Cohen talks about how players have taken to the IGT platform and why more and more sports books are selecting IGT as a partner. He details the lessons learned over the last year and gets down in the weeds a bit about how sports betting is actually conducted in the U.S. He spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros at G2E in Las Vegas in October 2019.
