This new partnership begins with the 2023-24 NBA season and provides the NBA with an equity stake in Sportradar.
This agreement with the NBA, WNBA and NBA G League maintains Sportradar as the exclusive provider of NBA data worldwide that will help fans across the globe engage with the three leagues. Sportradar will continue to be both the authorized global distributor of official NBA and WNBA betting data and the distributor of live game video that is available to international sports betting operators for fans to experience in real time.
In addition, the new relationship includes expanded distribution rights regarding the use of player tracking data. Sportradar will also establish a dedicated team to innovate and transform the fan experience. This will include utilizing data to create a deeper understanding and appreciation of the game, developing new data products to enrich fan engagement, and revolutionizing how sports betting data is utilized by betting operators and media partners.
“We are delighted that the NBA has chosen Sportradar as the Official Partner who can support the global popularity and explosive growth of the game,” said Carsten Koerl, global CEO, Sportradar. “Basketball is the largest U.S. sport in the world by popularity and, as a market leader, we are best positioned with the technological expertise and industry relationships to help the NBA entertain fans globally.”
Continued Koerl: “We believe that this agreement will contribute to Sportradar’s profitable business and continued growth. The remaining time left on the existing deal, and this new multi-year agreement, gives us significant runway to partner with the NBA and develop exciting solutions across our teams, betting and sports entertainment verticals.”
“Sportradar has been a terrific partner as the league has navigated its exploration into the global sports betting landscape,” said Scott Kaufman-Ross, Senior Vice President, Head of Gaming & New Business Ventures, NBA. “As the market matures, we are thrilled to extend our partnership with Sportradar to utilize data and insights to create new fan experiences and innovate around the NBA globally.”
This deal extends a relationship that began in 2016, when Sportradar and the NBA announced a multiyear partnership, which made Sportradar an Official Provider of Real-time NBA League Statistics.
The NBA and Sportradar will continue to collaborate on best-in-class practices to protect the integrity of games, which includes the use of Sportradar’s Universal Fraud Detection System (UFDS) to monitor global betting activity and trends worldwide.
Over the course of 2021, Sportradar has signed data rights deals with leading leagues and governing bodies across five of the most popular global sports, including Union of European Football Associations, International Tennis Federation, International Cricket Council, the National Hockey League and the NBA.
NJ Online Casinos Acquires The Domain NJ-Online-Casinos.io
NJ online casinos, a website that lists and reviews all the regulated online gambling sites and casinos in New Jersey, is proud to announce that it has now acquired the domain nj-online-casinos.io.
The website is well established and relied upon by the online New Jersey gambling community for its unbiased, honest, and comprehensive reviews of online casinos that legally operate within the state. With the procurement of the new domain, NJ Online Casino hopes those seeking access to the latest promotions and bonuses offered at New Jersey casinos will discover the website and its extensive resource of gambling sites more easily.
NJ Online Casinos provides visitors to its website with an extensive list of the available online casinos in New Jersey and guides them through the ideal options to pick based on their unique preferences. These include casinos with a wide variety of casino games, such as blackjack, poker, or baccarat, the sites with the best promotional codes or welcome bonuses, and those that offer the most accessibility for users by additionally offering mobile versions of their websites or as downloadable apps.
A spokesperson from NJ Online Casinos said, “Considering all the online casinos New Jersey has to offer, it’s not a surprise that people from other states are willing to travel to NJ to play. NJ casino online experience is something pretty unique. There are so many online NJ casino rooms with different characteristics that it is almost impossible to rank them. Thanks to the huge number of online casinos, the number of casino games and online slots NJ has to offer is simply incredible.”
As well as its guidance on the most lucrative or immersive online casino to join in New Jersey, NJ Online Casinos also has a useful section on its website that is devoted to showing visitors the warning signs for non-reputable gambling sites and how to easily spot casinos that do not have a license to operate in New Jersey.
This commitment to user safety is furthered in the website’s specialized section that discusses the most effective ways to set gambling limits (by placing a credit card limit, for example), as well as the true incentive of casinos’ bonus offers, such as referral bonuses, welcome bonuses or no-deposit bonuses and what common terms utilized on gambling sites mean, like RTP (return to player.)
Ontario, get ready! RAW Group Hits the Market Ramping Up its Distribution Scope
Provider behind SuperSlice®, SuperTracks® and SuperSymbols™ gets the nod to launch in Ontario
RAW iGaming, the studio that considers itself the pink shark in the sea of sameness, is set to blast monotony out of the market in Ontario after being given the green light to launch its games in the province for the first time.
RAW’s full suite of in-house games will debut shortly with big name operators while players are being told to strap themselves in for the thrill ride.
RAW iGaming has made a name for itself through innovative, patent-pending mechanics such as SuperSlice®, SuperTracks® and SuperSymbols™, which deliver entirely new experiences that players in Ontario will now be able to enjoy for the first time.
For example, SuperSlice uses wheels instead of reels while SuperTracks uses pathways or tracks and the positioning of symbols on those to determine wins. SuperSymbols is the latest RAW innovation and sees adjacent matching symbols combine to create bigger image pixel counts, which in simplicity means the bigger the SuperSymbol, the bigger the win potential.
Some of RAW iGaming’s exciting titles to hit lobbies in Ontario include Ave Caesar DynamicWays™, Raging Super2Ways SuperSymbols™ and the new Aztec SuperTracks™.
RAW’s entry into Ontario forms part of wider plans to make its titles available to operators in all core regulated markets across the world. The studio already holds approvals in the UK, Sweden and Malta along with more than 10 other regulated markets and a busy roll out pipeline adding more soon.
Tom Wood, CEO of RAW Group, said its studio, RAW iGaming, believes its titles will bring something entire new to the Operator sites in Ontario and will help differentiate their portfolio’s to stand out from rival brands.
“From the outset when we founded RAW in 2021, our mindset was fixed on pushing creativity, and mechanics to deliver games that excite players in ways that other slot games haven’t even thought of. Our innovative products push boundaries but still deliver experiences that players recognise and want to play – a balance that is hard to strike.
“Our partners in the market either have a fast growing or an established player-base that exemplifies our growth strategy. We are honoured to see our titles in Canadian lobbies and for players to see why we are the pink shark in the sea of sameness.”
