Unibet secures NBA data accreditation for US wagering

Manuel Stan – Kindred USA

Stockholm-listed Kindred Group Plc has confirmed that its flagship Unibet sportsbook subsidiary has been syndicated as an NBA wagering partner for US wagering markets.

The approval will allow Unibet’s US operations to access NBA data and statistics, enhancing its basketball inventory for customers wagering within regulated US states.

A busy 2019 has seen Unibet launch its first US online sportsbook property in the state of New Jersey in partnership with the Hard Rock Hotel Casino in Atlantic City.

Last week, securing a multi-year agreement with Pala Interactive, Unibet launched its full-service online gambling platform for the state of Pennsylvania.

Further to the data agreement, the NBA and Unibet will continue to work together on how best to strengthen and protect the integrity of the sport and its athletes.

Strengthening its betting-related integrity capacity, during 2019 the NBA has secured William Hill and DraftKings as official data partners

Manuel Stan, SVP Kindred Group USA, said: “We are very proud to partner with the NBA. This agreement will add to the first-class gaming experience that our customers already have.

“By accessing the NBA’s official data, the customer experience will be further enhanced. Kindred shares the NBA’s view of a regulated and sustainable gaming market, making this partnership a perfect combination.”
