Illinois and Indiana are the third and fourth states respectively in which SG will offer its dedicated OpenSports platform to FanDuel Group.
SG Extends OpenSports to FanDuel in Two New States
Scientific Games continues to expand on its partnership with Flutter Entertainment’s leading sports betting brand in the United States, FanDuel Group, through a new technological partnership for Illinois and Indiana.
Moving forward, FanDuel will benefit from the OpenSports platform, making for a total of four states in which the companies work together leveraging this tech, including Colorado and West Virginia. Flutter and Scientific Games have been collaborating for the past 20 years.
Six more states are expected to join the partnership with OpenSports empowering FanDuel’s portfolio in each. Outside of the United States, Scientific Games provides the same solution for Flutter Entertainment’s brands in Europe and Australia with Betfair, Sky Bet and Paddy Power for the former and Sportsbet for the latter.
OpenSports brings inherent benefits that allow it to stay competitive and offer a flawless service to businesses and customers. Scientific Games’ solution has a 100% uptime, including during crunch-time events, such as the Super Bowl, March Madness, and any other traffic-intense events.
Flawless Offer and Execution
The platform handled a total of 50 million bets with 115,000 bets per minute in the United Kingdom on the occasion of the Grand National making it one of the most dependable solutions in the sector.
Commenting on the partnership, group CEO digital Jordan Levin praised FanDuel as a world-class operator that benefits from SG’s advanced technological solutions, and added:
“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.”
Levin reaffirmed Scientific Games’ commitment to providing FanDuel with scalability and stability, especially given the context of FanDuel’s reach in the sports betting market in the United States.
The company still owns around 33% of all market share on average in each jurisdiction it operates in. This platform, argues Levin, “gives them a rock-solid foundation to maximize player engagement and market share.”
FanDuel remains tied with DraftKings as the leading provider of mobile sports betting solutions in the United States.
