Leading global sportsbook supplier will support the launch of the first tribal sportsbook in the state of Kansas with award-winning sports betting technology
Kambi Group plc, the world’s trusted sports betting partner, has signed a sports betting partnership with Prairie Band Casino & Resort, owned by the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation, to open the first tribal sportsbook in the state of Kansas.
Prairie Band Casino & Resort, located close to Topeka, Kansas, received approval earlier this year for an on-site sportsbook at the casino on tribal land.
The multi-year partnership will see Kambi Group plc and Prairie Band Casino & Resort launch the first tribal sportsbook in the state, adding a sportsbook to its 35,000 sq ft casino with ten kiosks and four bar-top terminals featuring a best-in-class sports betting products including Kambi Group plc’s award-winning Bet Builder product.
“We’re very proud to partner with the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation’s casino and resort as we continue to support tribes in their sports betting endeavors,” the co-founder and Chief Executive Officer for Kambi Group plc, Kristian Nylen, said. “Its successful and long-standing reputation in Kansas, combined with our award-winning sports betting technology, will create a one-of-a-kind experience for its current customers while also attracting a whole new demographic.”
“When sports betting was legalized in Kansas last year, we received so many positive comments and questions from our guests,” the Gaming Director for Prairie Band Casino & Resort, Chris Garrow, said. “Mostly asking when we start offering it and we continue to get those questions. Now, we finally will be able to answer those questions with certainty. We are excited to launch our retail sportsbook as another amenity for our guests to ‘play your way’. This will be the first true locals’ sportsbook in Kansas.”
Gambling.com Group Ready for Launch of Online Sports Betting in Kentucky with BetKentucky.com
Gambling.com Group Limited (Nasdaq: GAMB), a leading provider of player acquisition services for the regulated global online gambling industry, today announced that it is ready to provide marketing services to licensed online sports betting operators in the state of Kentucky as legal online sports betting goes live on Thursday, September 28, 2023.
The group launched BetKentucky .com in April of 2022 ahead of the legal online sports betting market in Kentucky going live to help sports bettors find trusted, comprehensive and up-to-date information on sports betting and legislative updates in ‘The Bluegrass State’. With seven approved online sportsbook operators available on day one and one more expected at a later date, access to comparison websites like BetKentucky .com enables consumers to read expert reviews of all legal sportsbooks in the state to help them choose their best option.
Through its portfolio of informational websites, Gambling.com Group helps operators acquire players, reducing their reliance on more intrusive forms of advertising. In addition to BetKentucky .com, the group is ready to help licensed online gambling operators in Kentucky with its national and international websites including Gambling .com, Bookies .com, RotoWire .com and USAToday .com through its media partnership with Gannett Co. Inc as well as with the Lexington Herald-Leader (at Kentucky .com) via its media partnership with The McClatchy Company and the Louisville Courier Journal (at Courier-Journal .com) via its media partnership with Gannett.
Kentucky with a population of over three million adults, launched retail sports betting in the state on September 7 with Governor Andy Beshear announcing bricks-and-mortar sportsbooks posted a handle of over $4.5 million after the first two weekends. BetKentucky .com in late-July commissioned a survey reporting that 42% of Kentucky adults say they are ‘very likely’ or ‘likely’ to bet on sports once it is legalized. Kentucky has a strong college sporting history with college teams at the University of Kentucky, University of Louisville and others receiving undivided attention from fans across the state.
“Kentucky has been one of the quickest states to launch sports betting after legislative approval and ‘The Bluegrass State’ is taking the right approach by keeping the barriers to entry low and allowing a variety of operators to enter the market,” the Chief Executive Officer for Gambling.com Group Limited, Charles Gillespie, said. “We believe that this will foster competition and ultimately benefit consumers as the operators with the best products rise to the top. Kentucky has a rich sporting tradition and Gambling.com Group Limited is excited to help guide and educate sports bettors in the state to get the most out of their online sports betting experience.”
“Kentucky allowing sportsbooks to take legal sports bets just as the NFL season is kicking off and with the MLB post-season on the horizon is a huge win for sports bettors in the state,” the Vice-President for Gambling.com Group Limited, Caroline Smart, said. “The competitive marketplace in Kentucky will guarantee plenty of choices and opportunities for customers, who can count on our dedicated websites that feature trusted, comprehensive and up-to-date information on sports betting as well as reviews of the legal sportsbooks to provide them all of the resources needed to navigate these exciting times.”
