2 minutes read
DraftKings has extended its supply agreement with Mansion Group's MansionBet brand.

Under the extended agreement, DraftKings’ B2B technology – that it owns through its acquisition of SBTech in April – be used for the operator’s online sportsbook and casino offerings.

The deal will also include the provision of a suite of managed services covering compliance, payments and anti-fraud protocols.

MansionBet has worked with DraftKings – originally SBTech – since February 2018, with that agreement facilitating the operator’s expansion into sports betting.

“DraftKings’ B2B platform has been instrumental to the success of MansionBet since we launched,” Mansion chief executive Karel Manasco said.

“The extended deal will allow us to provide our players with the ultimate sports betting experience, including increased offerings and an enhanced horse racing product, utilising the impressive platforms and services that DraftKings provide.”

DraftKings’ chief international officer Shay Berka added: “Our renewal and extension with MansionBet, a tier one operator in the highly competitive UK market, is another example of the strategic value DraftKings’ cutting-edge B2B technology provides to our clients.”

The extended deal comes after DraftKings last week partnered up with South African gaming and hospitality group Peermont Hotels, Gaming and Resorts to launch a new mobile and online sportsbook in the country.

On the B2C side, DraftKings this month also entered a wide-ranging partnership with the Turner Sports division of WarnerMedia. This sees it become the exclusive sportsbook and daily fantasy sports provider for select Turner Sports and Bleacher Report assets.
