Kambi to power Liberman Media’s sportsbook launch in Puerto Rico

Kambi Group has agreed to support LMG Gaming (LMGG), owned by Puerto Rican media business Liberman Media Group, with the launch of a new sportsbook product in the unincorporated US territory.

Under the long-term partnership, Kambi will provide its sportsbook technology to power LMGG’s ApuestaPR betting brand, which will initially launch online and potentially be expanded to retail in the future.

LMGG will also make use of Kambi’s application programming interface (APIs) and range of marketing tools to help promote the brand on LMG’s Teleonce television network in the region.

“After extensive research the choice was clear, Kambi is by far the best-in-class sportsbook in the industry and we are honoured to build our business in Puerto Rico with them,” LMGG partner Winter Horton said.

“With our top-rated Teleonce television network providing unlimited marketing and our key retail relationships, we are very confident that ApuestaPR will be the number one sports betting platform in Puer..

Playing the long game

Last week, sports betting solutions provider Kambi and Penn Entertainment finalised the terms of their long-awaited migration deal, wherein Penn’s online and retail sportsbooks will migrate to its proprietary technology. Marese O’Hagan speaks to Kambi CEO Kristian Nylén about the future of the deal and the rise of vertical integration.

In August 2021, Penn Entertainment – then known as Penn National Gaming – announced that it would acquire Canadian sportsbook theScore for $2.0bn (£2.79bn/€2.05bn). The plan was to migrate Penn’s betting products onto a platform created by theScore, which did not yet exist at the time of the deal.

Having worked with Penn since 2019, this deal came as a disappointment to Kambi. From Kambi’s perspective, it was losing a vital client to a platform that had not yet been created. And it certainly didn’t help that the announcement came on the back of the migration of another high-profile client in DraftKings.

Kambi pens multi-channel sportsbook deal with Oaklawn Racing Casino Resort

Kambi Group has entered into a multi-channel sportsbook agreement with Oaklawn Racing Casino Resort in the US state of Arkansas.

Under the deal, Kambi will provide its on-property and online sportsbook solutions direct to the thoroughbred racetrack and casino.

Kambi will support Oaklawn with the launch of its online sportsbook operations under the brand “Oaklawn Sports”, subject to Arkansas passing the relevant laws. Online gambling of any kind is not yet legal in the state.

In addition, Kambi will continue to provide its retail sports betting solution to Oaklawn. The venue has been offering sports wagering through Kambi’s retail sportsbook since last year, with the new, multi-channel deal replacing the existing agreement.

“Oaklawn has been one of the most trusted brands in Arkansas for more than 100 years and we are excited to now offer our loyal customers yet another great amenity with our much-anticipated mobile wagering platform,” Oaklawn general manager Wayne Smith said.

Kambi to launch in up to seven provinces of Argentina

Online sports betting provider Kambi has penned an agreement with Ondiss to exclusively provide its sports betting technology services to an Argentinian group of three operators.

The deal will see Kambi grow its Latin American footprint with launches in up to seven new Argentinian provinces with the BetWarrior, Casino Magic and Casino Club brands.

Kambi will grow from providing its sportsbook technology services from three today to as many as ten Argentinian provinces in the coming months.

Kambi CEO and co-founder Kristian Nylén argued to the potential that the Latin America has for the supplier.

“The Latin American market continues to hold great promise for Kambi, so I am delighted to sign this exclusive agreement with Ondiss to support these visionary operators across Argentina,” he said.

“BetWarrior and Casino Magic have proven fantastic partners for Kambi since going live and we look forward to working with the two brands, as well as Casino Club, even more closely as they loo..

Kambi pivots to modularisation as DraftKings exit continues to hit Q2 revenue

Betting supplier Kambi will increase its focus on modularised products rather than its full sportsbook solution – and may seek to make acquisitions – after key client DraftKings’ migration away from Kambi’s sportsbook continued to affect its earnings in Q2.

Revenue for the supplier for the quarter ended 30 June was down by 18.8% from Q2 of 2022 to €34.7m (£29.2m/$35.2m), a change the business said was due to the migration of US betting giant DraftKings away from Kambi’s platform and onto the SBTech product it acquired in 2020.

While DraftKings has already completed its migration, two other key clients are also taking steps to move away from its platform in favour of in-house options. Unibet operator Kindred has been building its own platform, set to launch when its partnership with Kambi ends in 2024.

If DraftKings – which produced 25% of Kambi’s revenue the prior year – is excluded, revenue was up 16% from Q2 of 2021.

Penn National gaming, meanwhile, acquired theScore last year, ..

DIY or third-party: the sportsbook technology debate

The debate over whether operators should build their own technology or use a third-party solution has raged for decades, but it appears to have grown more intense as the US market opens. However, as Daniel O’Boyle reports, it may not be a question with a clear answer

It’s said that if you want something done well, you should do it yourself.

That appears to be an adage many sports betting operators have taken to heart.

Hop on any earnings call for a US operator, and there will no doubt be plenty of mentions of “proprietary sportsbook technology”.

The demand among operators for in-house solutions is backed up by their money. In 2020, DraftKings merged with SBTech, valuing the supplier at $634.1m. Last year, Caesars acquired William Hill for $3.7bn, mostly for its proprietary technology.

Meanwhile, theScore announced a long process to build its own sportsbook technology, which surely played a major part in Penn National Gaming acquiring it for $2bn.

“I don’t want to get distracted b..
