Scientific Games has expanded its partnership with Flutter Entertainment to provide FanDuel with the technology for online and mobile sports betting in the US market.
As first reported on SBC Americas, this expansion – also covering igaming content – means that Scientific Games will serve the fantasy sports operator turned sports betting powerhouse in regulated state markets across the country.
OpenBet, the renowned sports betting engine which now sits under SG Digital’s (Scientific Games’ online division) OpenSports umbrella, has been at the core of Flutter’s proprietary sports platform in Europe for over a decade.
In a short statement released during ICE London, the company said it was “looking forward to taking this partnership to the US”.
FanDuel, part of the Flutter stable of brands alongside the likes of Paddy Power, Betfair and Sportsbet, has been blazing a trail in New Jersey – the state running neck and neck with Nevada as the two clear leaders for sports betting revenues.
Online sports betting sites licensed through the Meadowlands in New Jersey, led by FanDuel but inclusive of PointsBet, produced revenues in excess of $12 million in December 2019.
The record month for New Jersey remains October of last year, when online revenues reached $38.7 million, including $20.7 million through these two skins.
