FansUnite Entertainment is expanding its services across North America after being awarded a sports gaming supplier license from the Ohio Casino Control Commission, permitting it to provide its services in Ohio.
With this license, FansUnite – a British Colombia-based firm listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange – will become a legal gaming supplier for micro-betting brand betr and other potential operators in the Buckeye State when it launches its sports betting market on January 1.
Reflecting on the license, FansUnite CEO Scott Burton highlighted how the entry into Ohio was part of the firm’s overall North American expansion plan, helping the company grow across the region.
“This license represents a major milestone for not only our US licensing strategy and B2B business but also our overall North American expansion plan,” commented Burton.
“The state of Ohio is the latest jurisdiction to legalize sports betting and as a major sports hub, we expect it to generate significant gaming revenues for our B2B clients and our live activation team at Betting Hero. This license will enable us to gain an early-mover advantage in a new market.
“Furthermore, as we secure more client contracts for our B2B solutions and/or affiliate operations, we intend to gain access to new betting jurisdictions where our customers operate; additional state license applications are underway.”
Back in March, FansUnite was also granted a gaming-related supplier-manufacturer license from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario.
Earlier this month, the firm also announced the departure of Darius Eghdami from his roles as Director and President of the company.
Eghdami handed in his resignation to attend to personal matters unrelated to his tenure at the global sports and entertainment company.
FansUnite thanked Eghdami for his service and wished him well in his future endeavours. He will stay in touch with the company through an advisor role.
