Dr. Laila Mintas to chair Advisory Board for Bet.Works

The former Deputy President for Sportradar US, Dr. Laila Mintas, has been appointed as Chairwoman of the Advisory Board for Bet.Works.

Dr. Mintas, who left her role at Sportradar in December 2018, believes that the sports betting platform provided by Bet.Works, a US-based iGaming and sportsbook technology platform supplier, will “fill a major void” that exists in today’s marketplace.

Recognised as one of the 25 executives to watch in 2019 by Global Gaming Business Magazine – a key supporter of this year’s Betting on Sports America – she will join a management team dedicated solely to the US market.

Bet.Works’ Founder and CEO David Wang said: “We are thrilled to have Dr. Mintas chair our Advisory Board. Dr. Mintas is an extremely well respected leader in the US sports betting industry with significant experience in integrity and working directly with sports leagues, including the NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, NASCAR, MLS and CONCACAF, which will be invaluable in leading our advisory board and driving the continued growth of Bet.Works.”

Dr. Mintas added: “I am very excited to join Bet.Works as the company is uniquely positioned to capitalize on the growth of the US sports betting industry. Bet.Works’ cutting edge enterprise sports betting platform will fill a major void that exists in the marketplace today. In addition, the company’s US-based management team dedicated solely on the American sports betting landscape will serve the company well.

“David will continue to build on their early successes, including the signing of the 1st nationwide media partner to enter into the sports betting sector with theScore (TSX Venture: SCR) and adding a signature partnership with Dennis Drazin and Monmouth Park in New Jersey. I look forward to working with my fellow Advisory Board members in bringing Bet.Works across all future regulated sports betting markets in America.”

Dr. Mintas was also recently awarded the Leaders in Sports Under 40 Award and the Sports Business Journal’s Game Changers Award, as well as the International Award for Women in the Gaming Industry – Inspiration of the Year.
