Kindred Group subsidiary Unibet has launched what it described as the first professional sports themed casino games ever in the US as part of a unique collaboration with Philadelphia Eagles and Pala Interactive.
Having expanded its partnership with the Philadelphia Eagles to include both casino and sportsbook, Unibet will now introduce Pennsylvanians to a first-of-its-kind Blackjack game called Eagles Blackjack. It is also the first time a casino game will be Philadelphia Eagles themed. The game will be available on the Unibet Betting & Casino mobile app and pa.unibet.com.
In addition, the firm will be launching an exclusive Eagles themed slots game, the Eagles Online Slot. With an anticipated launch later this year, the game will also be available in Pennsylvania.
Manuel Stan, SVP Kindred US, commented: “The partnership with the Philadelphia Eagles is truly special and this is a great testimony of how two perfectly aligned organizations can deliver fantastic innovative products for their fans and customers.
“I am extremely proud of the work done by both teams to release the first ever professional themed sports casino game in the United States, and this is just the beginning.”
Catherine Carlson, Senior Vice President, Revenue and Strategy, Philadelphia Eagles, added: “We are excited to collaborate with a forward-thinking partner like Unibet whose innovation continues to create new and exciting online opportunities for our fans.
“As the online gaming industry continues to emerge and expand in the marketplace, our partnership with Unibet takes us to a whole new level and allows us to be on the forefront of industry firsts, such as being featured in the country’s first professional sports-themed casino game.”
