Kambi Pens Multi-State Deal with Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma

The agreement cements Kambi as the preferred sportsbook partner of tribal entities in the US

Kambi Group, a leader in the provision of sports betting solutions, has formed a multi-state sportsbook partnership with the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, one of the largest Indian communities in the US. Under the deal, Kambi will supply the tribal nation with its cutting-edge sports betting services and tech.

Under the agreement, the Choctaw Nation will pair its digital and ecommerce experience with Kambi’s sportsbook excellence. By capitalizing on the provider’s market-leading turnkey sportsbook, the tribal entity seeks to expand its presence across online and retail sports betting.

The Choctaw Nation operates Choctaw Casinos & Resort, a casino & hospitality brand with properties across southeastern Oklahoma. The tribe is also the official and exclusive casino and resort partner of the Texas Rangers, the MLB’s World Series Champion.

Choctaw Nation’s flagship resort is located near the Texas border and close to the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex with a population of more than 8 million.

For Kambi, this partnership represents another opportunity to cement its position as the preferred sportsbook partner of Indian Nations in the US. According to the announcement, the Choctaw Nation opted to pick Kambi because of the latter company’s proven tech capabilities and collaborative approach to delivering tailored solutions.

Kambi’s co-founder and CEO, Kristian Nylén, commented on the new tie-up, praising it as a “landmark partnership” for his company. In addition to noting that the deal has exciting long-term potential, Nylén lauded the Choctaw Nation for its fantastic gaming facilities and experience in the digital sector.

Not only does Choctaw Nation have fantastic, well-positioned gaming and entertainment facilities in Oklahoma, but its proven track record in developing successful digital businesses gives me every confidence that together we will create thrilling sports betting experiences for its players.
