SPORTS BETTING SUPPLIER OF THE YEAR: SBTECH made great strides during the past year with its arrival in the US market and a string of contracts in Europe. Furthermore, it has continued to innovate, building out its product with innovations such as its PulseBet feature, and has continued to build its team.
The US market was where it was at for sports betting suppliers in 2018, and SBTech was one of the first out of the blocks, when it announced an agreement with Churchill Downs. The pair teamed up in Mississippi and New Jersey, and SBTech followed that up by agreeing a deal with New Jersey’s iGaming market leader Golden Nugget. If Stateside progress grabbed the attention, SBTech had already reinforced its reputation in the European lottery market. In early 2018, Danish state lottery Danske Spil selected SBTech as the full turnkey platform solution supplier for its new Youbet.dk brand.
Deals with the likes of Mansion and Bethard showed that SBTech will not lose focus on its core markets. To top it all off, SBTech closed the year with an extension to its deal with Czech lottery operator Sazka Group. Nobody made progress like SBTech in 2018.
