FanDuel, the leading online sports book in the U.S., is powered by the IGT PlaySports platform. Joe Asher, the former leader of the William Hill sportsbook, one of the first online books to be established in the U.S., was named president of that IGT division two years ago. Just two weeks before the Super Bowl, Asher talks about this year’s contest in Las Vegas, how the variety of prop bets grows every year and why the matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs should encourage a record amount of bets. He also talks about sports betting in general and discusses his role as chairman of the Wilson Center, a federal agency that advises Congress. He sat down with GGB Publisher Roger Gros at the IGT headquarters in Las Vegas in January.
