Kindred Group has followed the land-based launch of its Unibet brand in Pennsylvania by rolling out online and mobile sports betting and casino gaming in the state, through a partnership with Mohegan Sun Pocono.
The Unibet land-based sportsbook, which went live in Pennsylvania at the end of September, will now be complemented by both online sports and casino services.
Kindred will use Pala Interactive’s online gaming platform and the Kambi sport betting solution to power its Unibet brand in Pennsylvania.
“After a successful launch of our betting lounge, Unibet Sportsbook at Mohegan Sun Pocono, we are thrilled to take the partnership with Mohegan Sun online and bring the Pennsylvanian guests a state-of-the-art online gambling experience, including the best online casino games and an impressive online sportsbook,” Kindred US senior vice president Manuel Stan said.
“Mohegan Sun has been a great partner throughout the preparation for this launch and we are confident that this will be a long-term and successful relationship in bringing a top-quality product to Pennsylvania.”
Aviram Alroy, vice president of interactive gaming at Mohegan Gaming and Entertainment, and owner and operator of Mohegan Sun Pocono, added: “We’re thrilled to introduce to our customers an opportunity to place bets and game online within the state borders.
“Our sportsbook lounge is a highly engaging and joyful experience on-premises and Kindred Group are able to extend that experience online through our strategic partnership.”
The launch marks Kindred’s second online roll-out of Unibet in the US, having also introduced the brand to the New Jersey market in September, through a partnership with Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City.
