Quick Custom Intelligence (QCI) announced a major deal with the Choctaw Nation. The latter has purchased and installed QCI’s Enterprise Platform, a pact embracing all 22 Choctaw casinos in Oklahoma. The value of the deal wasn’t included in the formal announcement.

“The present phase of the partnership finds both entities deeply engrossed in the crucial stages of data validation and training,” reported QCI, , a purveyor of artificial-intelligence platforms. A “late-September” launch was cited the news release, dated October 6 and issued October 8.

“This partnership with QCI represents not just a business decision, but a symbol of growth and advancement for Choctaw Nation casinos,” Choctaw Senior Director of Player Development Walter Allen told the media. “Their Enterprise Platform is a game-changer and having it installed in all our casinos showcases our dedication to providing unparalleled experiences to our patrons.”

QCI Chief Technology Officer Andrew Cardno reciprocated the sentiment, calling the alliance “a representation of what happens when two visionaries come together. The speed and scale at which we’ve executed this project exemplify the trust shared between QCI and the Choctaw Nation.”

QCI’s products, according to the company, are not just found in tribal nations, but in the Bahamas, New Zealand, Australia and throughout North America.

The Choctaw Nation owns three full-scale resorts in Oklahoma, in Durant, Pocola and Grant, along with four small casinos and 15 Casino Too-branded slot parlors for convenience gambling. Both the Durant and Grant resorts sit on the border with Texas.
