Betting systems provider Kambi has strengthened its US hand with the launch of a sportsbook based at the biggest gaming venue in Pennsylvania.
Following a short period of testing overseen by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB), approval was given for the sportsbook at Parx Casino to become operational. The decision means that Kambi now provides three of the state’s four live sportsbook platforms.
Speaking about the launch, the senior Vice President at Parx Casino, Matthew Cullen, said that the venue was delighted to be able to offer sports betting to its customers:
“Parx Casino is thrilled to launch legalised sports betting on property this week, and to do so with such a high- quality product from Kambi is particularly exciting.”
The sportsbook will be operated through seven teller windows and 45 kiosks, running on Kambi technology, and customers at the Parx will also be able to use the Betslip Builder mobile application produced by Kambi. This app enables punters to bet through their mobile devices by creating a QR code before they get to the sportsbook window, speeding up the betting process.
Parx is also aiming to launch a branded online betting site in Pennsylvania, though this will be dependent on approval from the PGCB. Kambi is also eyeing new projects, including the launch of sportsbooks at the South Philadelphia Turf Club and Valley Forge Turf Club, with the former due to be ready for testing as early as next week.
