CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) – A casino operator is suing a tech company after a contract dispute shuttered its sports betting platform at two West Virginia casinos ahead of the NCAA Tournament.
A Friday news release from Delaware North says it’s filed a civil suit seeking monetary damages against United Kingdom-based Miomni Gaming and its CEO, Michael P. Venner.
Miomni’s contract dispute with a third-party technology supplier has prevented Delaware North’s Mardi Gras Casino in Nitro and the Wheeling Island Hotel-Casino-Racetrack from taking new sports wagers since March 6.
The casino operator’s lawsuit says Miomni misrepresented its ownership of a key part of the sports betting platform.
A voicemail left with Miomni was not immediately returned.
The suit was filed late Thursday in Delaware.
