Wind Creek Bethlehem Partners with Scientific Games in iGaming Operations

Wind Creek Bethlehem is expanding its online gaming offering with a new partnership with Scientific Games. The land-based casino operator has over 12 casinos and will be providing even more online gaming services for players in the Keystone State thanks to the OpenGaming platform of Scientific Games.

The gambling software provider and the casino already work together with Wind Creek offering titles from the OpenGaming portfolio. Online slot games created by Scientific Games as well as third-party games are provided.

Expanding iGaming Services

Wind Creek is owned and operated by Wind Creek Hospitality, an arm of the Poarch Band of Creek Indians. The Pennsylvania property started offering online gaming last summer and its platform was the 11th one launched in the state. To offer services, Wind Creek works with Pala Interactive.

To expand in the early days, the company teamed up with Scientific Games and Betfred. Scientific games provided software while Betfred helped to support the brand’s sports betting ventures. With its new tie-up with Scientific Games, Wind Creek will be able to provide a more enhanced gaming product online.

New games are on offer including such popular titles as Dancing Drums, 88 Fortunes, and Raging Rhino. Players can access the new games while in Pennsylvania, with many more options to choose from than before. Scientific Games has plenty of titles to choose from as its ecosystem includes over 3,000 titles.

Scientific Games reported that the platform will provide consumers with an immersive 360-degree experience across all channels. Wind Creek can now offer something for everyone, including online-only slot games as well as classic titles.

Expansion Efforts in the US

Wind Creek Hospitality has its eye on expanding its online gaming options in Pennsylvania, but also expanding into new states within the US. The company recently proposed a plan to create a casino in Virginia, within the capital city of Richmond. Unfortunately, this week, it was made known that the plan will not be considered further.

Officials in Richmond decided to narrow the six proposals down to three. Wind Creek was one of three operators that will not move forward in the process. Officials decided to consider other options for the new casino construction.

Wind Creek is also looking at expanding in its home state of Alabama. Legislation is currently under consideration that would see the state add new casinos as well as allow the tribe to offer Class III gaming. This would help build the existing casinos owned by Wind Creek into larger venues with traditional table games, slots, and more.

Purchasing the Sands Bethlehem and changing it to the Wind Creek Bethlehem got the ball rolling for Wind Creek Hospitality and was a major milestone for the group. Since that time, the company has set its sights high, looking to expand gaming services to various areas across the US.

As more opportunities arise for new casino gaming venues, it would not be surprising to see Wind Creek Hospitality’s name in the mix. The company has big plans to become a major player in the US gaming industry.
