FSB Secures Sports Wagering Agreement in Deadwood, South Dakota

By Simon Wright, Last updated Jan 17, 2023

FSB, the award winning sports betting & iGaming platform provider, has taken another step forward in the North American market with the announcement of a sports wagering agreement with leading slot route operator AG Trucano (AGT).

Subject to license approval, the agreement will see FSB’s next generation self-service betting kiosks distributed across 11 AGT-operated casinos in Deadwood, South Dakota. Two of the 11 casinos will also be supported by FSB’s over-the-counter EPOS solution as the global company continues to make strides in retail.

AGT has been operating in South Dakota since 1989 when gaming was legalised and the organisation manages over 600 slots in the city of Deadwood.  This venture will see them operate a single retail sportsbook across the 11 casinos.

This new US venture for FSB follows on from the freshening up of their North American leadership team earlier this year that saw Vice President of Pre-Sales, Mike Van Ermen, and Vice President of Operations, Bob Akeret, join from Circa Sports and Resorts Digital Gaming respectively.

Mike Van Ermen, Vice President of Pre-Sales, North America, of FSB, said: “This is a tremendous step forward for FSB as we continue to make progress in the North American market.”

“AG Trucano has an outstanding reputation in South Dakota and we’re delighted to be building this partnership with them.”

“This deal is testament to the strength of our localised retail offering and the huge progress that FSB has made in 2021 in the US and globally. It’s great to see our momentum continuing.”

Bart Hamm, President & Owner, at Aces Full Inc (AG Trucano), said: “With the legalisation of sports betting in the city of Deadwood in 2020, we were keen to find a technically advanced US based team who would help us operate a retail sportsbook in our properties.”

“FSB has a unique retail offering that gives us control and flexibility while allowing us to offer our patrons a sensational sports betting experience.”

Mike Trucano, Founder & Consultant to AGT, said: “It’s been a pleasure working with FSB’s Business Development Manager, Lisa Waterfield and Mike on this agreement.”

“We’ve been hugely impressed by their retail solution and look forward to distributing the FSB SSBT kiosks across 11 of our casinos.”
