Catena Media, the leading sports betting affiliate, recorded a positive start to player signups in Kentucky in conjunction with the state’s launch of legal online sports betting on 28th September.
The market opening, which coincided with a busy early-season NFL sports calendar, generated firm player engagement after extensive pre-launch marketing campaigns and targeted offers from Kentucky’s licensed operators, Catena reported.
Driving the launch were Catena Media’s national brands such as LegalSportsReport.com, GamingToday.com, TheLines.com and Lineups.com. The group’s media partnership with The Sporting News also helped deliver an inflow of player registrations.
“We’re pleased to see a successful start to legal sports betting in Kentucky,” said Ryan Harper, Catena Media’s Vice President for North America. “Player registrations on our sites matched our expectations, and we anticipate continued progress as more people discover the benefits of safe, regulated online sports betting.”
