MGE deals with Kambi to power its online and on-property sports betting products at Mohegan Sun.
Mohegan Sun is consistently being ranked among the world’s top resort and entertainment destinations.
Mohegan Sun property is situated in south-eastern Connecticut and boasts both Casino of the Earth and Casino of the Sky, a state-of-the-art poker room and three major entertainment venues.
MGE deals with Kambi because of its track-record of lawful and responsible delivery in the US, including the quality and flexibility of its sports wagering products, trading and risk management capabilities and unrivalled speed to market—both online and on-property.
In the meantime, the Kambi Sportsbook will be integrated into Mohegan Sun’s iPro gaming platform to power a free-to-play sportsbook, enabling Mohegan Sun patrons to familiarise themselves with the Kambi product ahead of a regulated real-money launch.
Kristian Nylén, Kambi Chief Executive Officer, said: “Kambi’s strategy in the US is to partner with the biggest and best gaming operators each state has to offer. In Mohegan Sun, not only have we partnered with one of the two largest casinos in Connecticut, but also one of the leading gaming and entertainment destinations across the whole of the country.”
Aviram Alroy, VP of Interactive Gaming for Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment, said: “Mohegan Sun’s goal is to utilise our brand and strong presence in the state and after a long vetting process, we found that Kambi was best positioned to complement that, as they’re the most sophisticated and comprehensive Sportsbook out there. That, along with a highly experienced and responsive team, placed Kambi well above the competition in the selection of a sports betting strategic partner in Connecticut.”
