Kindred has partnered with Turf Paradise and obtained nine limited event wagering operator (LEWO) licenses for sports betting in the state of Arizona.
Through its agreement with Turf Paradise, Unibet, the sportsbook brand of Kindred, will grow its presence in the Grand Canyon State.
Unibet and its partners have now been awarded nine LEWO licenses, just a few months after launching its first retail sportsbook lounge in the state at Paradise Casino in Yuma.
The sportsbook brand will conduct event wagering at the following locations – Turf Paradise, Brookside II, Charley’s Sports Grill, Gallagher’s 16th, Gallagher’s Baseline, Harold’s, R.T. O’Sullivan, Boston’s Bar, and Midtown Tavern.
Manuel Stan, SVP North America, Kindred Group, commented: “Being awarded nine of the ten LEWO licenses is a great outcome for Kindred, Turf Paradise and our partners in the State. This is a great opportunity for Kindred Group to expand the Unibet brand in Arizona and build on the early success in the State.
“Over the next few months, we will work closely with our partners to prepare the launches in the different locations and are excited to be able to bring our best-in-class product to more customers in Arizona.”
Last month, Kindred reported its year-end financials, with CEO Henrik Tjärnström declaring 2021 “a strong year despite a slightly more challenging fourth quarter”.
