Earlier this month, U.S. Integrity announced a new partnership with one of Michigan’s most popular casino brands, FireKeepers. The casino hotel brand, owned and operated by the Nottawaseppi Huron Band of the Potawatomi, opened its battle creek location in August 2009. The new partnership with U.S. Integrity (USI) will help FireKeepers better identify abnormal or suspicious sports wagering activity at their in-person sportsbook: Dacey’s Sportsbook, and the FireKeepers mobile sports betting platform.
Considering FireKeepers is the title sponsor of the 400-mile-long NASCAR race at the Michigan International Speedway, it makes sense why the casino/hotel is taking such a firm stance against illegal gambling.
Vice President of marketing and sports/online gaming at FireKeepers, Jim Wise, commented on the recent agreement, “We are very excited to be working with U.S. Integrity as we have continues to see solid growth in sports betting, both on-premises and digitally. . . Having USI as a partner ensures the safest bets for our guests, as we have the ability to identify potentially suspicious wagering activity in real time.”
According to USI’s head of business development, Ali Schempp, the company essentially has three types of customers: regulators, league properties, and casino/sportsbook operators. “If you split our verticals into three sections, you have regulators, our league properties, and then the operators, which are not only sportsbooks themselves, but also the tribal properties that have sportsbooks. The tribal presence is vast and robust and a relationship we value immensely.”
Matthew Holt, USI’s CEO, and co-founder, commented on the partnership, stating, “US Integrity is proud to partner with FireKeepers Casino Hotel and assist with the protection of their sports betting platform. USI’s mission is to provide conflict-free, best-in-class insights, and compliance solutions to our clients. We are looking forward to working with the outstanding team at FireKeepers Casino Hotel. Their commitment to fair and safe sports wagering aligns with the integrity standards USI aims to uphold throughout the legalized sports-betting market.”
