Scientific Games, Flutter Entertainment Renew Sports Betting Partnership

Scientific Games, Flutter Entertainment Renew Sports Betting  Partnership

Scientific Games Corporation announced it has secured a five-year contract renewal with long-term customer Flutter Entertainment PLC to continue providing its OpenSports technology to the operator’s portfolio of global brands.

Flutter Entertainment is one of the world’s leading sports betting, gaming and entertainment providers, serving over 13 million customers worldwide through brands including FanDuel in the U.S., Paddy Power, Betfair and Sky Bet in the U.K., and Europe and SportsBet in Australia.

The five-year renewal comes on the back of FanDuel selecting Scientific Games to power its sportsbook offering across all current and future regulated markets in the U.S. Flutter Entertainment and Scientific Games first partnered with Paddy Power in 2000, making this the 20th anniversary of the companies’ partnership.

Together, Flutter and Scientific Games teams have achieved a number of industry milestones. In 2010, Paddy Power accepted its first Live Odds bets, and the following year saw the sportsbook become the first to launch the innovative Cashout feature, both powered by the OpenBet engine. Following the merger between Paddy Power and Betfair, the OpenSports team was heavily involved in the migration of the two brands onto a single customer platform.
