Penn National Gaming has selected Malta-based supplier White Hat Gaming to provide a player account management platform as it prepares to launch real-money betting in multiple states across the US.
The operator is aiming to leverage its land-based presence to make a push to become a leading sports betting operator in the market, having selected Kambi as its sportsbook technology partner in July this year.
This solution will be integrated with the White Hat platform, with the first state launches scheduled for the third quarter of 2020.
The supplier’s chief executive Phil Gelvan said it was an “honour” to be selected as a supplier to an operator of Penn National’s size and reputation following a competitive tender process.
“In Penn National, we have found an ideal partner, who share our passion for the consumer gaming experience and are committed to the highest standard of regulation,” Gelvan explained.
“We look forward to partnering with them to build one of the leading businesses in American sports betting and online casino.”
Jeff Kaplan, vice president of strategy and finance for the operator’s Penn Interactive Ventures subsidiary added: “We’re proud to be partnering with a leading platform provider like White Hat Gaming.
“The team at White Hat shares our vision for providing a best in class, intuitive product experience for our customers.”
