Genius Sports And FanDuel Announce Partnership
Some slots players have little interest in other casino games or sports betting, while others like to have a variety of options when they choose the best online slots sites for them. If you fall into the latter group, and enjoy sports betting as well as casino action, then this news may interest you.
Genius Sports, a sports technology group with headquarters in London, announced its new partnership with the FanDuel Group, a premier US online sportsbook. While this partnership will help to improve FanDuel's sports data and content offering, it will also help Genius Sports to expand its already enormous reach in the sports technology sphere.
“We are delighted to partner with FanDuel to help them create the most compelling and contextual sports betting experience possible,” said Genius Sports CEO Mark Locke. “With official data at its heart, this partnership enables FanDuel to better engage and monetize its customer base at every step of their journey. We couldn’t be more proud to be expanding our relationship with a clear giant of US sports betting in a way that entirely validates our long-held strategic vision.”
According to the press release that announced the partnership, in April 2021, Genius Sports became the National Football League's 'exclusive live streaming partner and distributor of real-time official play-by-play statistics', while FanDuel became one of the NFL's official betting partners around the same time. Basically, this partnership was a match made in NFL heaven.
Niall Connell, General Manager of FanDuel Group said, “We are always looking for ways to improve our product and the data opportunities gained via this agreement help FanDuel achieve that objective. The new suite of offerings including official NFL data will enable us to better serve our customers and enhance America’s #1 Sportsbook.”
