DraftKings Inc has announced a major partnership renewal for its B2B technology unit (formerly SBTech) as Gibraltar-based Mansion Group renews and expands its existing platform arrangement.
Updating stakeholders, Mansion Group confirms that DraftKings B2B will continue to serve as lead platform provider for its flagship MansionBet brand, servicing its lead software for online casino and sportsbook services.
As lead technology partner, DraftKings B2B will provide MansionBet with further customised components and managed services related to compliance, platform security, payment and anti-fraud protections.
In 2018, Mansion Group switched MansionBet to SBTech’s full-service Chameleon360 igaming platform. Group CEO Karel Manasco noted that the platform upgrade had been a significant factor in the company recording year-on-year growth.
“DraftKings’ SBTech platform has been instrumental to the success of MansionBet since we launched,” Manasco commented.
“The extended deal will allow us to provide our players with the ultimate sports betting experience, including increased offerings and an enhanced horse racing product, utilising the impressive platforms and services that DraftKings provide.”
Key upgrades will see MansionBet leverage DraftKings’ full suite of APIs across its sportsbook product and the bookmaker will further benefit from additional horseracing features including live streaming coverage of Timeform content from UK and international tracks.
“Across multiple global jurisdictions, DraftKings is changing the way fans engage with sports,” added Shay Berka, DraftKings’ Chief International Officer. “Our renewal and extension with MansionBet, a tier-one operator in the highly competitive U.K. market, is another example of the strategic value DraftKings’ cutting-edge B2B technology provides to our clients.”
