The flagship Unibet brand of the Kindred Group has extended its U.S. existence after opening alongside Mohegan Sun Pocono in Pennsylvania in its second jurisdiction.
Running initially in a land-based capability, with internet plans to follow later this year, it follows the product making its US debut previously this month in collaboration with Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Atlantic City.
The offer of the casino is to be coupled with the digital customer experience and information analysis capability of Unibet, as the Mohegan Gaming and Entertainment estate strives to produce “a unique and strong offering in sports betting in the state”.
The Unibet sportsbook, powered by Kambi sports betting supplier, offers wagering possibilities for a multitude of games including NFL, NCAA, NHL, NBA, PGA, professional tennis, wrestling, UFC, rugby, NASCAR and MLS, and also Premier League, La Liga and Bundesliga football.
Kindred US’s SVP Manuel Stan said: “We are excited and proud to partner with Mohegan Sun Pocono to welcome patrons to our new sportsbook, and offer a great extension to our online product in one of the largest states to regulate both online sports betting and casino.
“We wanted a strong partner who shares our dedication to customer experience and values, and we know that together we will offer Pennsylvanians a truly unmatched in-house and soon-to-come online sports betting and casino experience.”
As portion of the partnership agreement, which will be accessible via Apple and Android mobile devices, Unibet will also release its sportsbook and signature casino online later this year along with Mohegan Sun Pocono.
Aviram Alroy, vice president of interactive gaming at Mohegan Gaming and Entertainment, added: “We’ve aligned with one of the world’s best online casino and sportsbook operators in online regulated markets, which will allow us to offer a best in class experience to our current clients and attract new fans. Introduction of the Unibet offering to the market is a great positive for Mohegan Sun, as well as the state of Pennsylvania.”
