The Stars Group signs 11-state partnership with Eldorado Resorts
By Tim Poole

The Stars Group has announced an 11-state partnership with operator Eldorado Resorts in the US.

The agreement allows The Stars Group to operate online betting and gaming in states Eldorado currently owns or operates casino properties, or in any it will own or operate in the future.

Currently, the partnership covers 11 states: Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada, Ohio and West Virginia. When combined with The Stars Group’s existing deals in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, this provides the operator with access to 13 states.

In terms of sports betting, The Stars Group will provide first skin access in states where Eldorado owns or operates more than one casino property and second skin access in all other states covered in the agreement where sports betting is legal.

The Stars Group CEO Rafi Ashkenazi said: "This agreement establishes the foundation for our US strategy as we tactically pursue access to other key states and opportunities with potential media partners."

Gary Carano, Chairman and CEO of Eldorado, said: "We are excited to work with The Stars Group to capitalise on their proven ability to leverage their products to gain share in the growing market for online gaming."
