Kambi Group plc has unveiled a multi-year deal to give online US betting company Rush Street Interactive with sportsbook technology and solutions.
Following this week’s U.S. Supreme Court choice to repeal the country’s national sports gaming ban in complete, Rush Street plans to establish a Kambi-powered Sportsbook within pick states where permitted, the company advised in a press statement Thursday.
Chicago-based Rush Street Interactive is connected with Rush Street Gaming, which owns and operates bricks and mortar stores in three of the country’s largest states — New York, Pennsylvania and Illinois.
Rush Street Interactive also operates the rapidly rising PlaySugarhouse.com online casino website in New Jersey’s regulated gaming marketplace.
In two of those four states where Rush Street operates, local lawmakers have enacted sports gambling legislation, and another two have been in the process of developing a legal framework for regulated sports gambling now that the prohibition has been lifted.
The agreement will see the Kambi Sportsbook incorporated into Rush Street Interactive’s proprietary platform, and covers the provision of online and retail solutions, as well as markets outside of the U.S., if Rush Street Interactive is to expand its business globally.
“Kambi has long kept a close watch on this U.S. market, carefully building a business and technology to match the probable state-by-state regulation of sports gambling, as well as meet the prerequisites stakeholders have for a protected and secure sportsbook,” Kristian Nylen, Kambi Chief Executive, said.
“This agreement with Rush Street Interactive, one of the most admired and advanced gaming companies in the U.S., is recognition which Kambi not just has online premium sports gambling providers prepared to appeal to American sport enthusiasts, but those that will help protect the integrity of sports. ”
