This week, Scientific Games Corporation and FanDuel Group, a subsidiary of Flutter Entertainment, strengthened their relationship by the former deploying its sports betting technology in Illinois and Indiana. The dual launch follows FanDuel debuts in Colorado and West Virginia, solidifying SG and Flutter Entertainment’s 20-year partnership.
The new agreement brings the total number of states where FanDuel is using OpenSports technology to four, with six more scheduled to launch in the coming months.
OpenSports is a core component of Flutter Entertainment’s global sports brands, which include Betfair, Sky Bet, and Paddy Power in Europe and Sportsbet in Australia, in addition to FanDuel.
SG said in a statement: “OpenSports has a proud history of performing at the highest levels during the biggest sporting events across the globe – demonstrated with 100% uptime during the biggest annual sporting event in the US, February’s Big Game.”
Jordan Levin, Group CEO, Digital at SG, commented: “World class operators like FanDuel need sports technology partners like Scientific Games. We have a long and successful partnership with Flutter and it’s exciting to see our leading sports betting technology go live in more states with their iconic FanDuel brand.
“Providing them with renowned platform stability and scalability gives them a rock-solid foundation to maximize player engagement and market share.”
