Mobile sports betting operation FOX Bet has become the latest operator to be named as an authorized gaming operator by Major League Baseball (MLB) in the United States.
The multiyear deal means the newly formed betting operator will be granted access to use MLB’s official data feed and League marks across its FOX Bet sports betting app and FOX Sports Super 6, its free-to-play game available nationwide.
Under the terms of the agreement, the group and MLB will also collaborate on responsible gaming, as well as working to develop “best-in-class” practices to protect the integrity of the league’s games.
“Adding The Stars Group and FOX Bet to our authorized gaming operator program continues our vision for ensuring we are serving fans with opportunity and choice,” said Kenny Gersh, MLB Executive Vice President, Gaming & New Business Ventures.
“Our official data feed, including real-time and reliable game statistics, and league marks will enable The Stars Group to build unique and engaging gaming products around our sport.”
FOX Bet is an online and mobile sports betting product that was developed through a national media and sports wagering partnership in the US between The Stars Group and FOX Sports, a unit of Fox Corporation. It is currently operating in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
FOX Bet has joined MGM Resorts International, DraftKings, and FanDuel as official data licensees under MLB’s Authorized Gaming Operator program. Financial details about the deal were not disclosed.Follow us on
