DC Circuit denies West Flagler’s motion to stay

The US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit has denied West Flagler Associate's motion to stay.

The motion, which was filed last week, was objected to by the US Department of the Interior (DOI) earlier this week (26 September).

West Flagler’s request to stay was its latest attempt to block the Seminole Tribe of Florida from rolling out Hard Rock Bet. The Seminoles were permitted to exclusively offer sports betting in Florida in May 2021. This was after Florida’s governor, Ron DeSantis, approved a compact agreement with the tribe.

The DC Circuit Court of Appeals filed the denial yesterday (28 September).

“Upon consideration of appellees’ motion to stay issuance of the mandate pending the Supreme Court’s disposition of a petition for writ of certiorari or, in the alternative, to stay issuance of the mandate for a reasonable time to permit appellees to seek a stay from the Supreme Court, and the opposition thereto, it is ordered that the motion be denied,” read the filing.

Kambi scores extended sportsbook deal with Sweden’s ATG

Kambi Group has signed a multi-year extension to its sportsbook partnership with Swedish horse racing and sports betting operator AB Trav och Galopp (ATG).

Under the deal, which extends a relationship that began in 2018, Kambi will provide ATG with its complete sportsbook. This covers sport betting across online and ATG’s retail network of nearly 1,500 outlets in Sweden.

Kambi has been able to renew the partnership after recently securing new approvals in the Swedish market. The provider picked up its B2B gambling permits in June in line with new regulations in the country that require suppliers to hold a B2B licence.

“Our strategy has always been to power market leaders or those with the potential for market leadership,” Kambi co-founder and CEO Kristian Nylén said. “In ATG we have a valued partner that has achieved just that since launching with Kambi in 2019.

“A sportsbook which offers the flexibility for operators to differentiate is vital in such a highly competitive market. ..
