International Game Technology (IGT) has launched a new Digital & Betting business segment, which was previously part of its Global Gaming segment.
The new segment will see the division split into three business segments in total – Global Lottery, Global Gaming and Digital & Betting.
Enrico Drago will serve as CEO, Digital & Betting, reporting to Marco Sala, CEO of IGT. Drago previously had oversight of the IGT iGaming, iLottery and sports betting businesses as Senior Vice President, PlayDigital.
“IGT has established strong leadership positions and driven dynamic growth across its iGaming and sports betting businesses. With significant growth expected to continue, we have decided to establish a dedicated Digital & Betting business segment,” said Marco Sala, CEO of IGT. “These businesses have become strategically important to IGT as they afford us the opportunity to leverage the global reach and strong customer relationships of our Global Gaming segment. The new structure gives us more flexibility in our product and solutions portfolio and enables better appreciation of the intrinsic value of these activities.”
