New York-listed Scientific Games has expanded its partnership with FanDuel to four US states after powering the operator’s sportsbook launch in Illinois and Indiana.
The dual rollout follows on from earlier launches with FanDuel in Colorado and West Virginia, cementing a 20-year relationship between Scientific Games and FanDuel parent Flutter Entertainment.
The partnership brings the number of states that FanDuel is live with Scientific Games’ OpenSports technology to four, with a further six launches planned over the coming months.
“World class operators like FanDuel need sports technology partners like Scientific Games,” said Jordan Levin, group CEO of SG Digital. “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 maximise player engagement and market share.”
OpenSports is also a key component of Flutter Entertainment’s global sports brands that include Betfair, Sky Bet and Paddy Power in Europe, and Sportsbet in Australia.
