The Casino Magic sportsbook is expected to go live in Neuquén during the first quarter of 2021, complementing the operator's existing online casino offering.

“Kambi's ability to efficiently pivot our technology to satisfy the compliance requirements within any regulated market is evident, and we are very excited at the prospect of leveraging this to deliver fantastic sports betting experiences to Casino Magic's players in Neuquén and continue our expansion in Latin America.”
Casino Magic general manager Eduardo Nanton added: "Kambi has established itself as the clear sportsbook of choice in regulated markets in Latin America and across the world, so we are pleased to have agreed this long-term partnership.
