The Flutter Entertainment-owned sports betting and fantasy sports operator has been live in the state since 2019, but has now debuted its new global sportsbook, through Scientific Games’ OpenSports platform.
The supplier’s OpenBet betting engine will be utilized from the platform by FanDuel, marking the latest step in its long-term partnership with Flutter, which has so far lasted 20 years. OpenBet also powers Flutter’s Betfair, Sky Bet, Paddy Power and Sportsbet brands across Europe and Australia.
FanDuel Group CEO Matt King said: “We are excited to roll out our next generation sportsbook technology throughout the United States, starting with West Virginia.
“Our global sports betting platform will offer customers an unrivaled betting experience and will cement FanDuel’s place as America’s number one sportsbook.”
Jordan Levin, CEO of Scientific Games’ digital arm SG Digital, added: “Going live with FanDuel’s new sportsbook is a truly landmark moment in our rich history of servicing Flutter Entertainment brands.”
Ahead of FanDuel’s planned entry into Michigan, the operator became an official sports betting partner of National Basketball Association (NBA) franchise the Detroit Pistons, at the end of last month.
