Fox Bet, the sports betting joint venture between The Stars Group and broadcaster Fox Sports, has been named an authorised gaming partner of Major League Baseball (MLB) in the US.
This sees Fox Bet gain the right to use the league’s official data feed and trademarks for both its real-money wagering app and free-to-play product Fox Sports Super 6.
The pair will also collaborate on developing responsible gaming controls to protect players, as well as developing best-in-class practices to uphold the integrity of MLB games.
The league’s executive vice president of gaming and new business Kenny Gersh said the agreement would ensure fans have a choice of partners in the market. It has already signed up the likes of DraftKings, FanDuel and MGM Resorts as authorised partners.
