Newly established Puerto Rican sports betting operator Ballers Sportsbook has announced plans to go live in the unimported US territory through a new partnership with Sportradar.
Under the multi-year agreement, Sportradar will supply Ballers with its Orako sportsbook solution, with Ballers planning to fully integrate this with R. Franco Digital Player Account Management technology to allow for omni-channel betting.
Ballers customers will have access to Sportradar’s betting portfolio, enabling them place a range of bets such as parlays, in-game wagering, teasers, futures and player props across their favourite sports.
Regulated sports betting was launched last year in Puerto Rico, with Ballers Sportsbook to become one of the first operators to launch in the market. The operator expects to go live during the second quarter of this year.
“As we prepare to launch our unique online sports betting offering and experience throughout Puerto Rico in the next few months, we are tremendously pleased and excited to count one of the world’s most prestigious sports-betting and gaming platform providers as our partners,” Ballers founder Daniel de Ontanon said.
“We are proud to be the local sportsbook operator and look forward to offering a unique and tailored experience to our players, full of great content and a true local flavor.”
Sportradar’s managing director for managed sportsbook services Jacob Lopez Curciel added: “The region of Puerto Rico as part of the Americas represents a unique and growing opportunity for Sportradar. We are pleased to power Ballers Sportsbook through our Orako solution and use the breadth of Sportradar’s technical capabilities to cover the full scale of the sports betting spectrum.”
