Scientific Games secures five-year Flutter partnership renewal

By

Flutter Entertainment has renewed its partnership with Scientific Games for a further five years.

The extension will see Scientific Games continue to provide its OpenSports technology to the betting operator across its global brands, which include Paddy Power, Betfair, Sky Bet and FanDuel.

Commenting on the extension, Rik Barker, CIO of Flutter Entertainment UK and Ireland Division, said: "We're very pleased to renew our partnership with Scientific Games. 

Whilst we take great pride in our proprietary technology and product development capabilities, Scientific Games' OpenSports technology has been a key part of our sports betting platforms for many years."

Scientific Games expanded its partnership with Flutter in February. Through the extension, Scientific Games will provide FanDuel with technology for its online and mobile sports betting in the US. 

Scientific Games has also announced the appointment of a new independent member to its board of directors. Former Barclays Bank CEO, Tim Throsby, will join the company’s board from 1 October 2020.

“We are delighted to have a financial leader of Tim's calibre join our board,” said Jamie Odell, executive chair of Scientific Games.

"Tim brings extraordinary financial and operational leadership experience. I'm confident Scientific Games will greatly benefit from his expertise as we continue to execute on our strategy to drive growth across our business and unlock value for our stakeholders."
