Stockholm-listed operator Kindred Group has launched its second retail sportsbook in the United States under its flagship brand Unibet.

The Kambi-powered sportsbook in partnership with Mohegan Sun Pocono in Pennsylvania marks the operator’s second US launch following the rollout of its New Jersey sportsbook earlier this month.

“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,” said Kindred US senior vice president Manuel Stan.

“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.”

Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment vice president of interactive gaming, Aviram Alroy, 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.”

Shares in Kindred Group plc (STO:KIND) were trading up 1.62 per cent at SEK56.32 per share in Stockholm Friday morning.
