On Time, On Budget, On Point
The DraftKings Sportsbook in Atlantic City was completed on budget and on time for a late November opening, and has received glowing reviews from fans who can seamlessly toggle between the DraftKings app, website, and live odds in front of them. There’s no need to rely on betting slips in this fully digital experience.
Some of the AV Technology built in to the system hasn’t even been seen before. “The ticker at this Book is…the most impressive in the US”, Eric Winnicki, Senior Project Manager with McCann Systems said. Stephen Weiss with C-Scape, the content manager for the double-sided ticker, added, “We were thrilled to work with McCann Systems to bring this installation to life.”
