The latest reports from the US have indicated to us that Kambi will use their newly-signed deal with Jack Entertainment to expand the operator’s facilities in Ohio. This will lead the casino to have an integrated sportsbook. The multi-channel partnership should be a win-win for both, if it gets the necessary approval from the state. Let’s take a look.
It’s only been a few months since Ohio became a legalized sports betting state in the US, with a report only last week on how successful the Ohio casinos performed in the past two months. You can find similar stories to that at the latest online gambling news, where it is our duty to bring to you the best bits of what goes on in the gambling world.
Jack Entertainment May Use Kambi Sportsbook
The partnership between the two is still waiting for approval but should the state give both parties a green light, then the use of Kambi’s sportsbook will be good to go. Jack Entertainment will integrate the sports betting options at Jack Cleveland Casino and Jack Thistledown Racino, with an online launch to follow afterwards.
The contract has also been extended to include potential partnerships in other states should further opportunities arise.
Here’s a few words from the Kambi CEO, Kristian Nylén:
“Jack Entertainment is clearly a major player in the Ohio market, and has been a primary target for us in the US as we build on our strategy to create unique and engaging sports betting experiences with visionary operators.”
This latest advancement will be the fifth deal which Kambi has signed this year, following partnership agreements with Mybet, Mohegan Gaming and Entertainment, Betwarrior and Penn National Gaming.
Last month, Kambi’s Penn National partnership will see the supplier’s online and retail sportsbook integrated into the operator’s facilities ahead of a rollout in jurisdiction with active sports betting legislation.
A few weeks ago, Kambi credited it’s 25% increase year-on-year revenue growth to the supplier’s operations in the US gambling market.
It appears as though Jack Entertainment will be fully satisfied with the latest deal, given the popularity of Kambi in the US.
