New Zealand Racing Board launches sportsbook through Scientific Games

By Nathan Joyes

Scientific Games has continued to build its relationship with the New Zealand Racing Board, which has launched its own sportsbook powered by OpenBet technology.

The sportsbook "TAB" is now live to punters throughout New Zealand, which allows them to bet across all mobile and digital platforms.

It has been built via OpenBet’s modular technology solutions, which also powers SG Digital’s US customers.

Features such as cashout and in-play will provide players with new betting opportunities across the fully featured sportsbook.

Keith O’Loughlin, SVP Sportsbook at SG Digital, said: "The New Zealand Racing Board fully understands their punters, so they know the value of Scientific Games’ user insight-driven experiences built on a reliable and stable perform.

"We’re proud to support them with our OpenBet technology and create a revolutionary product for punters in the market via a front-end player experience built on the latest technology also available to our US customers."

John Allen, CEO of New Zealand Racing Board, said: "This is the most ambitious and technically complex project our organisation has ever undertaken and, together with SG Digital, we’ve delivered a sophisticated, world-class betting experience for our customers."
