Intralot has agreed a new deal to become an authorised gaming partner of Major League Baseball (MLB).
Under the agreement, which came into effect ahead of yesterday’s (23 July) start of the 2020 regular season, Intralot will have access to official MLB data, marks, and logos for its sports wagering platforms.
According to Intralot, the deal will benefit lottery customers and their players by providing them with an enhanced player experience across retail and online platforms.
Intralot agreed the new partnership through its Intralot Inc. US subsidiary.
“We are excited to work with MLB to bring our players and MLB fans an enhanced sports betting experience,” Intralot Inc. chief executive Byron Boothe said.
“The 2020 season will be one to remember for years to come, and at Intralot Inc., we are ready to bring our players the best sports betting platform by incorporating this new and thrilling partnership.”
The New York Yankees and the Los Angeles Dodgers both claimed victory in the opening day double-header, with the Yankees beating the Washington Nationals 4-1 and the Dodgers seeing off the San Francisco Giants 8-1.
Games are currently taking place behind closed doors, with no supporters in attendance, due to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.
