SBTech to enter French market

Leading technology supplier now in 21 regulated territories

Leading sports betting and gaming technology supplier SBTech, will enter the rapidly growing regulated French market in the first quarter of 2019, with a strong pipeline of well-known operators set to integrate its proven platform and software solutions.

France will be the provider’s 21st regulated market and swiftly follows its entry into the US, after partnership agreements with prestigious casino brands in states including New Jersey and Mississippi.

A key pillar of SBTech’s strategy is to enter all major regulated markets, and the regulated French online sports betting space, open since 2010, has developed into one of the biggest in Europe.

This significant expansion comes soon after SBTech extended their key partnership with Bethard for the next five years.
