Kindred signs sports betting deal with Pennsylvania casino
Kindred Group has signed a strategic partnership with Mohegan Sun Pocono in Pennsylvania to launch Unibet in the state.
Kindred will launch its Unibet brand’s online casino and sportsbook at the resort should the deal gain full regulatory approval.
The deal will see Kindred and Mohegan Sun Pocono partner for an initial five year term.
The deal can then be extended for two additional five-year terms. Kindred will be able to offer both online and offline sports betting in the state.
The Unibet sportsbook and casino will be available online, while there will be a Unibet sports betting lounge at the casino resort. Mohegan Sun Pocono is located in Plains, Pennsylvania.
Speaking about the deal, Aviram Alroy, VP interactive gaming at Mohegan Gaming and Entertainment, said:
We’ve aligned with one of the best online casino and sport book operators in online regulated markets which will allow us to offer best in class experience to our existing customers as well as attracting new ones. Introduction of the Kindred offering to the market is a great positive for Mohegan Sun as well as the state of Pennsylvania.–Aviram Alroy, VP interactive gaming at Mohegan Gaming and Entertainment
This is the second US state in which Kindred will be active in. The group is already active in New Jersey, after singing an agreement in August last year with the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City.
Speaking about that deal, Manuel Stan, Kindred US senior vice president, said:
This is a very exciting moment for Kindred as we have been working hard to take this first important step into what will most likely become the largest betting market in the world. I’m also delighted that we have been able to team up with a true lifestyle and entertainment brand and I am confident that Kindred and Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City will give New Jersey customers an absolutely great sports betting and gaming experience.–Manuel Stan, Kindred US senior vice president
