Lottery supplier INTRALOT has announced that 2021 will see it launch its own digital sports betting solution in Washington DC, having already congratulated the DC Lottery on its sports betting start.
DC Lottery’s GambetDC sports betting platform, launched on May 28, provides responsible entertainment while generating revenue supporting public programmes , services, and initiatives that benefit the residents and the District of Columbia ‘s economic vitality.
In turn, INTRALOT deployed its INTRALOT Orion sports betting platform as part of its contract with the DC Lottery to enable the mobile and desktop sports betting offering GambetDC. In addition to the technology, INTRALOT also provides a complete suite of supporting sports betting services to DC Lottery, such as Managed Trading Services (MTS), Marketing Services (MS), and Customer Support (CS).
Group CEO Dr Chris Dimitriadis said: “We would like to thank the DC Lottery for their trust on our partnership. Our state-of-the-art digital sports betting platform, INTRALOT Orion, will allow players in the District of Columbia to enjoy the convenience of easily wagering anytime, anywhere allowed, while offering them an unparalleled gaming experience.
“We look forward to continuing our partnership with the DC Lottery and provide them with our next-generation portfolio and advanced services to drive its performance and accelerate its growth.”
With the native iOS and Android apps set to be deployed in the coming weeks, the initial soft release of the sports betting platform has seen the GambetDC web site available to the general public.
GambetDC is broadly accessible throughout the District to players 18 years of age or older, except for federal enclaves falling within the region established by the Shipstead-Luce Act and within the two-block zones surrounding the four major sporting arenas of the District.
Discussing the demand for sports betting in Washington, DC, Byron Boothe, Interim CEO of INTRALOT US, concluded: “We are thrilled that GambetDC is live in Washington DC and couldn’t be prouder that this was such a successful brand launch for our long-term partners at the DC Lottery.
“We know the passion for sports in DC and hope that this betting experience will satisfy both loyal sports players and novices alike. Most importantly, we are excited to provide the DC Lottery with a complete solution to maximise sports wagering revenues and returns to the District’s General Fund aiding the city’s economy thus benefiting all District residents as well as commuters and visitors to the nation’s capital.”
