SG Partners With FanDuel For Sportsbook Launch In West Virginia

Scientific Games Corporation has partnered with FanDuel Group, a subsidiary of Flutter Entertainment, marking the first online sportsbook launch by the US operator in West Virginia with the company’s sports betting engine.

Since 2019, FanDuel’s online sportsbook has been live in West Virginia, but this new partnership will see it debut its new global sportsbook solution built in collaboration with Scientific Games, using the OpenBet betting engine from the OpenSports platform of the company.

In a tweet, SG said that going live with FanDuel Group in West Virginia marks the next step in Flutter Entertainment’s long-standing sports betting relationship, which spans over 20 years.

In addition to FanDuel, OpenBet is a key component that drives the global sports betting network of Flutter Entertainment for popular brands such as Betfair, Sky Bet and Paddy Power in Europe and Sportsbet in Australia.

CEO Matt King of FanDuel commented: “We are excited to roll out our next generation sportsbook technology throughout the United States, starting with West Virginia. Our global sports betting platform will offer customers an unrivaled betting experience and will cement FanDuel’s place as America’s number one sportsbook.” 

Group CEO, Digital at Scientific Games, Jordan Levin, said: “Going live with FanDuel’s new sportsbook is a truly landmark moment in our rich history of servicing Flutter Entertainment brands. Utilizing OpenSports technology is a game changer for FanDuel and will introduce a new way of betting for its customers. Our dedicated team has been extremely agile and flexible, providing the operator with excellent service in West Virginia.”
