Ohio-based land casino group JACK Entertainment has announced that they've signed a content deal with Kambi Group to power their sportsbetting platform moving forward.
The deal will see a sportsbook powered by Kambi being offered at JACK Cleveland Casino as well as JACK Thistledown Racino in North Randell, Ohio. The books will allow punters in the Buckeye State and within the properties to lay down bets on a variety of different sports, including football, basketball, baseball, and more.
While the deal is good for the two Ohio properties, there is a chance to expand into other territories as additional states as sportsbetting becomes legal there.
Speaking about the deal Kambi CEO Kristian Nylen noted, "JACK Entertainment is clearly a major player in the Ohio market, and has been a primary target for us in the US as we build on our strategy to create unique and engaging sports betting experiences with visionary operators.
"The management team at JACK Entertainment were quick to recognize the comprehensive omni-channel excellence offered by the Kambi sportsbook, and how effectively this will complement their ongoing delivery of top-quality gaming and entertainment.
JACK Entertainment VP of Sports and Digital Gaming Adam Suliman added: "JACK Entertainment is thrilled to announce a long term strategic partnership with Kambi to support sports wagering in Ohio, should enabling legislation come to fruition. We feel strongly that Kambi's best in class platform, combined with JACK Entertainment's properties and brand, will allow us to deliver the very best sports betting products and experiences to our patrons in Ohio."
