Having already congratulated the DC Lottery on its sports betting launch, lottery supplier INTRALOT has announced that 2021 will see it launch its own digital sports betting solution in Washington DC.

DC Lottery’s sports betting platform GambetDC, launched on May 28, offers responsible entertainment while generating revenue supporting public programs, services, and initiatives that benefit the residents and the economic vitality of the District of Columbia. 

In turn, as part of its contract with the DC Lottery, INTRALOT deployed its INTRALOT Orion sports betting platform to enable the GambetDC mobile and desktop sports betting offering. In addition to the technology, INTRALOT also provides the DC Lottery with a complete suite of supporting sports betting services, such as Managed Trading Services (MTS), Marketing Services (MS), and Customer Support (CS). 

Dr Chris Dimitriadis, Group CEOk, said: “We would like to thank the DC Lottery for their trust on our partnership. Our state-of-the-art digital sports betting platform, INTRALOT Orion, will allow players in the District of Columbia to enjoy the convenience of easily wagering anytime, anywhere allowed, while offering them an unparalleled gaming experience. 

“We look forward to continuing our partnership with the DC Lottery and provide them with our next-generation portfolio and advanced services to drive its performance and accelerate its growth.” 

The initial soft release of the sports betting platform has seen the GambetDC website available to the general public with the native iOS and Android apps set to be deployed in the coming weeks. 

GambetDC is widely available throughout the District to players aged 18 or older, except for the federal enclaves that fall within the area defined under the Shipstead-Luce Act and within the 2-block zones surrounding the District’s four major sports arenas. 

Discussing the demand for sports betting in Washington, DC, Byron Boothe, INTRALOT US Interim CEO, concluded: “We are thrilled that GambetDC is live in Washington DC and couldn’t be prouder that this was such a successful brand launch for our long-term partners at the DC Lottery.

“We know the passion for sports in DC and hope that this betting experience will satisfy both loyal sports players and novices alike. Most importantly, we are excited to provide the DC Lottery with a complete solution to maximize sports wagering revenues and returns to the District’s General Fund aiding the city’s economy thus benefiting all District residents as well as commuters and visitors to the nation’s capital.”
