Leading sports betting technology provider OpenBet went live in New York last week, as the state officially launched mobile sports betting, it has announced
Launching last Friday with FanDuel, after the latter and three other operators were given approval to begin operations in America’s fourth most populous state, the supplier has provided its “modern, scalable and robust” betting technology for use.
The company’s team, it said, worked “tirelessly” to ensure its modern, scalable and robust betting technology met regulatory standards and allowed FanDuel, one of the world’s biggest sports betting brands, to be first to market with players in New York.
The achievement was welcomed by Leo Perrotta, vice president of OpenServices at OpenBet, who said: “We’re ecstatic that New Yorkers can finally enjoy legalised mobile sports betting, as well as grateful for the opportunity to work alongside FanDuel once again to deliver our market-leading technology.
“The huge potential that New York offers for the sports betting industry has been well-documented. Facilitating FanDuel’s launch on day one of the market opening was incredibly important to us and we’re excited to bring safe and responsible betting experiences to a wealth of payers across the Empire State.”
This latest launch further strengthens the partnership between OpenBet and FanDuel, with the Flutter Group brand now entrusting the sports betting provider’s leading technology across 13 US states.
In addition to New York, FanDuel also utilizes OpenBet’s platform within Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia.
