FansUnite Entertainment has been granted a sports gaming supplier license from the Ohio Casino Control Commission, permitting it to provide its services in the Buckeye State.
The British Colombia-based firm – which is listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange – will become a legal gaming supplier for micro-betting brand betr and other potential operators in Ohio when it goes live with its sports betting market on January 1.
Reflecting on the license, FansUnite CEO Scott Burton underlined how the firm’s North American expansion plans are just beginning with its entry into the state of Ohio.
“This license represents a major milestone for not only our US licensing strategy and B2B business but also our overall North American expansion plan,” stated Burton.
“The state of Ohio is the latest jurisdiction to legalize sports betting and as a major sports hub, we expect it to generate significant gaming revenues for our B2B clients and our live activation team at Betting Hero. This license will enable us to gain an early-mover advantage in a new market.
“Furthermore, as we secure more client contracts for our B2B solutions and/or affiliate operations, we intend to gain access to new betting jurisdictions where our customers operate; additional state license applications are underway.”
FansUnite was also granted a gaming-related supplier-manufacturer license from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario back in March.
Earlier this month, the firm also announced the departure of Darius Eghdami from his roles as Director and President of the company.
Eghdami handed in his resignation to attend to personal matters unrelated to his tenure at the global sports and entertainment company.
FansUnite thanked Eghdami for his service and wished him well in his future endeavors. He will stay in touch with the company through an advisor role.
