The sports betting and data supplier now boasts 40 licences or similar regulatory approval documents in the US and Canada, in places where it is legal to provide betting services.

The state of Kansas became the most recent to open up to sports betting and several sportsbooks launched to consumers on the 1 September, including DraftKings, BetMGM, FanDuel, Caesars and Penn Entertainment, when it officially became legal. 

Upon the legalisation of sports betting in Kansas, Governor Laura Kelly commented: “Legalising sports betting is a common-sense solution that keeps Kansans’ money in Kansas and drives business sporting events, casinos, restaurants and other entertainment venues. I want to thank all our partners for working with us to get this done in time for football season.”

Meanwhile, the Bay State of Massachusetts is set to become the next to offer sports betting to its citizens, following the recent approval by the state’s house and senate.

After the agreement was struck Speaker Ron Mariano tweeted: "I am proud to announce that the Sports Betting Conference Committee has reached an agreement on legislation that will legalise wagering on professional and collegiate sports in Massachusetts, bringing the immense economic benefits of a legal sports betting industry to MA."

The NFL season begins again this week and new partnerships are subsequently being signed en masse.

For example, Churchill Downs Incorporated (CDI) has entered into a multi-year agreement with FanDuel Group.
