Sports betting software provider Miomni Gaming has hit back in its legal dispute with Delaware North, accusing the US casino operator of making “inconsistent” claims over the collapse of the parties’ joint venture.
In a filing with the Court of Chancery in Delaware, Miomni said the claims made by Delaware North in its initial lawsuit last April “vary from or are inconsistent with the terms” of the arrangement between the two parties.
The joint venture saw Miomni partner Delaware North to launch the BetLucky sports wagering platform, which went live in West Virginia on December 27, 2018, but ceased operating on March 6, 2019. Delaware North then terminated the contract in April 2019 and filed a lawsuit against its former partner.
Delaware North had argued that Miomni’s representations about BetLucky were knowingly false, but Miomni has stated that the reason for the platform stopping activities in March 2019 was due to the wrongful conduct of a third party, Enterg Software Solutions. Enterg provided certain back-end elements of the platform, something Miomni claims Delaware North was fully aware of – which the operator disputes.
