PointsBet has finalized the acquisition of Banach Technologies Limited on Tuesday. The company will now move forward with Banach’s strong technological offer that will allow it to continue building on the sportsbook’s legacy as a leading in-play sports sportsbook in the United States ahead of anticipated growth for the segment.
