GAN extends FanDuel partnership into Indiana


Online betting and gaming platform provider GAN has extended its partnership with FanDuel into Indiana, after the company received a temporary supplier license.

GAN will power the account services for FanDuel’s mobile sportsbook offering, which was launched yesterday (22 October) in partnership with Blue Chip Casino in the state after receiving approval the day before.

FanDuel is the latest of three mobile sportsbook operators to receive approval from the state gaming commission, following Rush Street Interactive and DraftKings.

GAN and FanDuel had already partnered for online sportsbook roll-outs in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

Dermot Smurfit, chief executive of GAN said the pairing had been a success so far and hoped to see that record continue in Indiana.

“Our effective and compliant Platform represents a premium component of the supply chain and our team has a track record of on-time delivery for our long-standing client FanDuel, which has proven to be an exceptionally successful partnership to date in both New Jersey and Pennsylvania,” Smurfit said.

“Rapid deployment into the state of Indiana is a logical extension of our relationship to best support FanDuel in capturing early market share of Internet sports betting in Indiana.”

Earlier this month (3 October), GAN revealed that stronger-than-expected demand for its sports betting services in the US helped to drive its third quarter gross operator revenue up 202.7% year-on-year to $80.9m.

Sports betting in Indiana launched on 1 September, with Rush Street’s mobile offerings bringing that vertical to the state on 3 October. In their first month of operation, sportsbooks in the state made a combined $35.2m.
