OpenBet and OPAP partner to deliver enhanced retail betting experience

Leading Greek gaming company leverages a wide range of betting markets and odds, as well new features, and functionalities, across its retail estate

November 28, 2023: – OpenBet, a leading content, platform, and service provider to the sports betting industry, has extended its long-term partnership with OPAP, the leading gaming company in Greece to deliver an enhanced retail betting experience.

In this new framework, OpenBet’s technology platform and products are now leveraged across OPAP’s retail estate.

The migration involved more than 3,000 OPAP stores across Greece and an estimated 20,000 terminals, which are powered by OpenBet’s full suite of world-class betting technology and trading content.

Established in 1958, OPAP, a member of the Allwyn Group, is the leading gaming operator in Greece and one of the most renowned in its sector globally. As part of its business strategy, the company is seeking to develop a compelling retail betting proposition and provide more options and greater entertainment experiences to its customers.

OpenBet’s platform enables OPAP to offer new features and functionalities to its retail customers. From a back-end perspective, OPAP benefits from numerous software capabilities, including multipricing that allows the company to provide different odds and betting markets across retail and online. The launch of the new retail betting platform follows the successful launch of OPAP’s new online sportsbook, which is also powered by OpenBet.

Jan Karas, CEO of OPAP, commented: "The launch of a new betting platform across a retail estate of more than 3,000 stores was a major undertaking, which was completed successfully thanks to close collaboration between the OPAP and OpenBet teams. We firmly believe that the new retail betting platform will enable us to further enhance customers’ entertainment experience at OPAP stores."

Jordan Levin, Group CEO of OpenBet, added: “We’re proud to have facilitated the next generation of OPAP’s retail betting offering, particularly so soon after the success of our online launch together. This is a significant milestone for both companies and strengthens our own position as a trusted provider to lotteries worldwide.”
