Igaming software provider BeyondPlay has announced it has been acquired by FanDuel.

BeyondPlay will now become part of FanDuel Casino, FanDuel’s igaming brand, and will have a focus on product development and innovation.

The company’s flagship products are a Jackpot Management System and Multiplayer Software which allows multiple users to participate in the same casino game sessions and pool their stakes.

“As a founder, witnessing the journey of our start-up from its humble beginnings to becoming part of the world’s leading online sports betting and igaming company is an incredibly gratifying experience. This acquisition validates the hard work and dedication of our team and the vision behind our products,” said BeyondPlay CEO Karolina Pelc

“We are excited to join forces with FanDuel Casino to amplify the impact of our technology on a global scale. This milestone marks not just the culmination of our tireless efforts, but the beginning of an exciting new chapter.”

According to FanDuel, the addition of BeyondPlay’s jackpot technology and multiplayer software capabilities will further enhance its igaming offering as it seeks to become the number one operator in the vertical.

“I’m absolutely delighted with the acquisition of BeyondPlay. Our U.S. strategy is about investing to win, and continuously improving our igaming proposition for our customers is a key part of that,” added FanDuel Casino Managing Director Asaf Noifeld

“This acquisition further strengthens FanDuel Casino’s leading customer experience, by adding BeyondPlay’s best-in-class jackpots and multiplayer technology. We’re also excited to welcome their experienced team to FanDuel and look forward to working together to continue to grow our rising share of the US iGaming market.”

Last month, Flutter Entertainment, the parent company of FanDuel, reported that FanDuel Casino’s market share grew to 26% in Q4 2023 which cemented its position as the second-largest igaming operator in the country behind BetMGM.
