Kambi Group plc has signed a long-term partnership to provide its online and on-property sportsbook to the Tohono O’odham Nation’s Desert Diamond Casinos & Entertainment in the state of Arizona.
The multi-channel agreement will see Kambi provide its full suite of sports betting technology, initially rolling out on-property across the operator’s West Valley, Sahuarita, and Tucson, Arizona properties in Q4 with an online sportsbook to follow under the newly created entity of Desert Diamond Mobile LLC.
Desert Diamond Casinos will use Kambi’s on-property offering, including the firm’s kiosk and Bring Your Own Device technology, as well as its in-event combinability product, which was launched in September ahead of the NFL season.
Kristian Nylén, Kambi CEO, stated: “We are very proud to partner with Desert Diamond Casinos & Entertainment, a deal which further strengthens Kambi’s strong relationship with tribal casino operators.
“Desert Diamond Casinos is renowned for offering world-class gaming and entertainment experiences and complements Kambi’s strategy to partner with market leaders.
“We look forward to working with them closely to deliver high-quality and exciting sports betting experiences to both its on-property patrons and online customers in the state of Arizona.”
Desert Diamond Casinos is owned and operated by the Tohono O’odham Nation, the largest tribal operator in the Grand Canyon State. Tohono O’odham Nation was one of 10 tribes in August to receive a license from the Arizona Department of Gaming to offer sports wagering in the state.
Mike Bean, CEO of Desert Diamond Casinos & Entertainment, added: “We are delighted to sign this multi-year agreement with Kambi, which has a proven track record in sportsbook provision across the globe.
“This exciting partnership provides Desert Diamond with the ability to leverage its long-standing, well-regarded brand to provide our guests with a leading sports betting product across multiple channels.”
