FanDuel to use Scientific Games technology in Tennessee and Michigan

Flutter Entertainment-owned FanDuel has built on its existing partnership with Scientific Games by launching its sports betting technology in Tennessee and Michigan.  

Tennessee once held the record as the fastest state to reach the $1bn mark; meanwhile, Michigan managed to reach the same total after only four months of legal sports betting.  

After the latest launch, FanDuel is now live with Scientific Games’ OpenSports technology in six states: Colorado, Illinois, Indiana and West Virginia.  

The OpenSports platform also powers other Flutter Entertainment brands around the world, including Betfair, Sky Bet, Paddy Power and Sportsbet.  

Scientific Games says the platform has a “proud history” of performing at the highest levels during big sporting events around the world.

The supplier adds there has been a 100% uptime experienced by US operators during events this year. 

Jordan Levin, Group CEO, Digital at Scientific Games, said: “There is simply no substitute for true platform stability and scalability, and our burgeoning partnership with FanDuel enables this iconic brand to maximise player engagement and market share free from worries over potential downtime. 

“As the next staging post across a long and successful journey alongside Flutter, going live in two top-performing states with our leading sports betting technology is an exciting moment for both parties.” 

Over in the UK, Flutter executives recently spent a day working behind the counter at Paddy Power shops.
