Kambi has signed a partnership with Prairie Band Casino & Resort in Kansas to provide its sportsbook technology to the first tribal sportsbook in the state.
Penning a multi-year deal with the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation, Kambi will add a sportsbook in the 35,000 square-foot casino that comes with 10 kiosks and four bar-top terminals.
Kristian Nylén, Kambi CEO and Co-Founder, said: “We’re very proud to partner with Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation’s Casino and Resort as we continue to support tribes in their sports betting endeavours.
“Their successful and long-standing reputation in Kansas, combined with our award-winning sports betting technology, will create a one-of-a-kind experience for their current customers while also attracting a whole new demographic.”
The Prairie Band Casino & Resort is the first tribal casino in Kansas to open a sportsbook since sports betting was legalized and launched back in September 2022.
Located close to Topeka, the casino was approved to host a sportsbook earlier this year when it was deemed it could have sports betting on tribal land.
Chris Garrow, Director of Gaming for Prairie Band Casino & Resort, said: “When sports betting was legalised in Kansas last year we received so many positive comments and questions from our guests. Mostly asking when we start offering it, and we continue to get those questions. Now, we finally will be able to answer those questions with certainty.
“We are excited to launch our retail sportsbook as another amenity for our guests to “play your way.” This will be the first true locals’ sportsbook in Kansas.”
