SELLS, AZ – Desert Diamond Casinos & Entertainment, an enterprise of the Tohono O’odham Nation, has signed a long-term partnership with Kambi Group to provide its online and on-property sportsbooks. The largest tribal operator in the State of Arizona, the Tohono O’odham Nation was one of 10 Arizona Indian tribes in August to receive a license from the Arizona Department of Gaming to offer sports wagering in the state.
The multi-channel agreement will see Kambi provide its full suite of sports betting technology, initially rolling out on-property across the operator’s West Valley, Sahuarita, and Tucson, AZ properties in Q4 with an online sportsbook to follow shortly under the newly created entity of Desert Diamond Mobile. Desert Diamond Casinos will utilize Kambi’s on-property offering, including the Kambi kiosk and Bring Your Own Device technology, as well as harnessing Kambi’s enhanced in-event combinability product, launched in September for the start of the NFL season.
“We are delighted to sign this multi-year agreement with Kambi, which has a proven track record in sportsbook provision across the globe,” said Mike Bean, CEO, Desert Diamond Casinos & Entertainment. “This exciting partnership provides Desert Diamond with the ability to leverage its long standing, well-regarded brand to provide our guests with a leading sports betting product across multiple channels.”
“We are very proud to partner with Desert Diamond Casinos & Entertainment, a deal which further strengthens Kambi’s strong relationship with tribal casino operators,” said Kristian Nylén, Kambi Chief Executive Officer. “Desert Diamond Casinos is renowned for offering world-class gaming and entertainment experiences and complements Kambi’s strategy to partner with market leaders. We look forward to working with them closely to deliver high-quality and exciting sports betting experiences to both its on-property patrons and online customers in the State of Arizona.”
