Commenting on the agreement SBTech CEO Richard Carter said, "I'm very pleased to confirm our latest strategic partnership with a major US operator. Golden Nugget fully shares our vision of leveraging the power of innovation to achieve sports betting success, and as the US market matures, I'm confident of the potential for further collaboration in multiple jurisdictions."
Golden Nugget's Thomas Winter added: "Since sports betting is a critical component of our successful expansion for online betting and gaming in the US, SBTech persisted through our arduous review process. In the end, we knew SBTech was the right partner for us because of its industry-leading retail and online technology, their significant and diverse regulatory experience as well as its innovative product-driven approach."
