Inspired Entertainment Will Make NBA Virtual Games

Gaming content creator Inspired Entertainment announced that it has signed a deal with the National Basketball Association that grants the company the rights to develop virtual sports games centered around the league.

Games will take place across all 30 of the league's teams and allow gamblers to place bets on the outcomes of the games. Wagering will include moneyline bets, spread, over/unders, and the total score. Punters will also get to bet on NBA All-Star, Playoff games, and the NBA Finals.

Inspired recently came to terms with FanDuel to offer online games throughout North America, with states like Michigan, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey already live with the content. No word on when the virtual games are going to launch in the country.

Regarding the agreement, Inspired CEO Brooks Pierce said, "We are thrilled to offer basketball fans worldwide the one-of-a-kind experience of a Virtual Sports NBA game. Our use of archived NBA footage will produce a truly distinct virtual sports offering. This will be complete with fresh gaming experiences providing a unique way for fans to stay connected with the game. Our partnership with the NBA allows us to provide an incredible offering. It will elevate our customers' brands and expand their reach to millions of basketball enthusiasts worldwide."

NBA Associate VP of International Gaming and Data Ventures Kuljeet Sindhar added: Virtual sports gaming continues to grow in popularity across the globe. We're excited to embark on this unique collaboration with Inspired to engage our fans around virtual sports with real-game action.

"Inspired is a leader in this space and will utilize immersive NBA game footage to deliver an authentic NBA experience to reach our fans in new and unique ways and continue to grow our fanbase around the world."
