FanDuel launches in Connecticut with OpenBet™ Sports Technology


Scientific Games and OpenBet have entered the newly-legalized market of Connecticut with long-term partner and leading sportsbook operator, FanDuel Group.

Following a successful soft launch period that was exclusive to FanDuel and a limited number of operators, the Flutter Group brand is now live with a comprehensive offering that is powered by OpenBet’s modern, scalable and robust betting technology.

Connecticut becomes the 12th U.S. state that FanDuel has launched a digital offering utilizing OpenBet technology to offer a safe and responsible betting experience. Last month, the operator entrusted the industry’s leading sports betting provider for its entry into Arizona, while it is also live with OpenBet across Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia.

Deploying its sports betting technology in another state with FanDuel enhances OpenBet’s position as a leading supplier within the US sports betting market and highlights the strength and robustness of the company’s modular product offering.

In addition to FanDuel, OpenBet powers Flutter Entertainment’s market leading brands including Betfair, Sky Bet and Paddy Power in Europe and Sportsbet in Australia.

Cathryn Lai, Chief Commercial Officer at OpenBet, said: “It’s fantastic to see Connecticut embrace legalized sports betting and officially open its doors. We’re proud to have delivered our transformed and modern sports betting technology to one of the biggest names in the U.S. market and support their entry into Connecticut.

“Players are sure to love the exciting new experiences on offer to them, which can be easily and responsibly accessed through their mobile devices. This latest launch demonstrates we’re once again delivering on our promise to provide world class sports betting entertainment for players worldwide.”
