Multi-year online sports betting partnership extended between Kambi Group and RSI

Rush Street Interactive (RSI) and Kambi Group have extended their US online sports betting partnership.

The companies did not reveal the length of the extension. However, it’s safe to assume the collaboration will continue for the next several years

Kambi and RSI joined forces in 2018 following the repeal of the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA). Since then, Kambi has supported RSI’s entry into the online sports betting market. 

Partnership successfully launched US online sports betting in 15 states

In a press release, Kambi CEO and Co-Founder Kristian Nylén said:

“RSI was the first US-based operator we partnered with post-PASPA, and it has been fantastic to witness RSI become one of the leading online gaming players in the Americas.

This contract extension ensures Kambi’s sportsbook will continue to complement RSI’s proprietary technology and platform, which together will provide the basis for even greater success in the future.”

The pair have successfully launched sports betting and online casino apps in 15 states, including major markets like New York, Pennsylvania and Illinois.

Additionally, Kambi has helped with international launches in Canada, Colombia and Mexico. 

Kambi Group entering 2023 on high notes

Kambi enters 2023 on a high note. The company expanded its footprint across Latin America with several new deals. Partnerships created in 2022:

  • LMG Gaming (Puerto Rico)
  • Rei do Pitaco (Brazil)

Rei do Pitaco is the largest daily fantasy sports operator in Brazil. Liberman Media Group owns LMG Gaming.

As for RSI, it entered into a strategic partnership with Penn Entertainment and secured access to several new markets.

RSI will offer its BetRivers online casino and sportsbook app in Ohio, which recently launched sports betting, as well as Maryland and Missouri.

“The addition of Ohio, Maryland and Missouri to our market access portfolio, specifically, builds on RSI’s success in neighboring states and will create enhanced marketing efficiencies for our BetRivers.com brand,” said RSI president Richard Schwartz.

“We continue to engage in productive dialogue with industry participants, such as tribal and commercial casinos and other stakeholders, to further our expansion into new states. We expect to continue entering into additional market access arrangements in the future, as other opportunities arise.”
