Scientific Games has expanded an existing partnership with Flutter Entertainment to cover the provision of online and mobile sports betting, as well as igaming content, for FanDuel in the US market.
The expansion will see Scientific Games 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 $12m in December 2019.
The record month for New Jersey remains October of last year, when online revenues reached $38.7m, including $20.7m through these two skins.
