Fubo Gaming partners Caesars for access in Mississippi, Louisiana and Missouri


The Fubo Gaming subsidiary of FuboTV has secured three further market access agreements in Mississippi, Louisiana and Missouri via its partnership with Caesars Entertainment.

Each agreement provides state-wide mobile access for sports betting, with the launch of Fubo Sportsbook subject to obtaining regulatory approvals and, in Missouri, the enactment of legalization for regulated wagering.

Louisiana launched its legal sports betting market last month, while Mississippi’s market has been open since August 2018.

A series of bills are currently in progress in Missouri with the aim of legalizing sports betting, including Senate Bill 764, which was filed last month. It would allow sports betting at casino boats in Missouri and state-wide via online wagering.

Fubo Gaming launched Fubo Sportsbook in the fourth quarter 2021 and the sportsbook is currently live in two states, Iowa and Arizona, though market access deals are in place in a total of 10 states.

The trio of agreements mark Fubo Gaming’s second round of market access deals agreed with Caesars, following a deal in March 2021 that covered New Jersey and Indiana.

Additional market access deals include Arizona with the Ak-Chin Indian Community, Iowa with Casino Queen, Pennsylvania with The Cordish Companies, Texas with MLS franchise Houston Dynamo and, earlier this week, Ohio with NBA team the Cleveland Cavaliers.

“We are pleased to have the opportunity to extend our relationship with Caesars Entertainment as we expand access to Fubo Sportsbook across key markets in the US,” Fubo Gaming president Scott Butera said.

“Mississippi, Louisiana and Missouri all have passionate fan bases, particularly around college athletics, who will embrace our unique, immersive sports and wagering entertainment platform.”
