Just a couple of weeks after the PlayFallsview online sportsbook and casino went live, Kambi and Mohegan are expanding the scope of their partnership in Ontario.
In addition to powering the online sportsbook, Kambi will also provide the platform for the retail sportsbooks at both Fallsview Casino Resort and Casino Niagara.
“Following our online sports betting partnership with Mohegan, we are thrilled to bring the same high-quality sports betting experiences to Fallsview Casino Resort and Casino Niagara in Ontario,” Kambi Co-Founder and CEO Kristian Nylén said in a release. “This exciting partnership enables Fallsview Casino and Casino Niagara to leverage their long-standing brands to provide their guests with a place to enjoy a leading sports betting product.”
Casino Niagara will convert its existing sports bar into a functioning retail sportsbook. Additionally, the two properties will install a combined 36 Kambi kiosks.
“We are very excited to partner with Kambi as we prepare to launch sports betting at Fallsview Casino Resort and Casino Niagara,” added Niagara Casinos President Richard Taylor. “With the changing landscape in gaming, we are working collaboratively with the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation, Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario and the Province to develop sports betting in Ontario. Our partnership with Kambi will continue to elevate our offerings at Niagara Casinos.”
The PlayFallsview brand is currently the only online gambling brand with ties to a land-based casino in Ontario. The launch also represented the first time Mohegan launched a digital product outside of the US.
Back in July, Mohegan officially rebranded from Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment to simply Mohegan to reflect its mission, which has grown beyond land-based gaming to include the digital realm as well.
