Las Vegas-based gaming and sportsbook technology provider Bet.Works has appointed Laila Mintas as chairwoman of the company’s advisory board.
Mintas most recently served as deputy president for Sportradar US, one of several roles which has seen her work directly with a number of professional sports leagues in the US.
Prior to Sportradar, she was director of sports integrity for the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF), and was head of legal and international development for the FIFA Early Warning System.
She joins Bet.Works as the supplier prepares for the launch of a new mobile sportsbook for Toronto-listed sports app developer theScore and its partner, Darby Development’s Monmouth Park Racetrack.
“We are thrilled to have Dr. Mintas chair our advisory board,” said Bet.Works founder and CEO David Wang. “Dr. Mintas is an extremely well respected leader in the US sports betting industry with significant experience in integrity and working directly with sports leagues, including the NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, NASCAR, MLS and CONCACAF, which will be invaluable in leading our advisory board and driving the continued growth of Bet.Works.”
Mintas said she was “very excited” to join Bet.Works, with the company uniquely positioned to capitalize on the growth of the US sports betting industry.
“Bet.Works’ cutting edge enterprise sports betting platform will fill a major void that exists in the marketplace today," she said. "In addition, the company's US-based management team dedicated solely on the American sports betting landscape will serve the company well.
“David will continue to build on their early successes, including the signing of the 1st nationwide media partner to enter into the sports betting sector with theScore and adding a signature partnership with Dennis Drazin and Monmouth Park in New Jersey. I look forward to working with my fellow advisory board members in bringing Bet.Works across all future regulated sports betting markets in America.”
