Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma Partners with Kambi Group plc for Sportsbook Expansion

Kambi Group plc (“Kambi”), a trusted provider of sports betting solutions, has secured a significant multi-state sportsbook partnership with Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma (“Choctaw Nation”), one of the largest Indian Nations in the United States. This exclusive agreement will see Kambi providing its sports betting technology and services to Choctaw Nation’s gaming establishments.

Choctaw Nation, which operates Choctaw Casinos & Resorts, boasts a network of gaming and hospitality venues across southeastern Oklahoma. Notably, Choctaw Nation is the official casino and resort partner of the Texas Rangers, adding to its prestige in the industry. Its flagship resort, strategically located near the Texas border and the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, serves a population exceeding eight million people.

This long-term partnership aims to leverage Choctaw Nation’s digital expertise alongside Kambi’s cutting-edge turnkey sportsbook technology, positioning them to emerge as a formidable force in both online and retail sports betting. Pending regulatory approvals, the agreement also presents opportunities for expansion into multiple states.

For Kambi, this collaboration underscores its reputation as the preferred sportsbook partner for Indian Nations across the U.S. Choctaw Nation’s selection of Kambi is based on the latter’s track record in online and retail sports betting technology, as well as its collaborative approach in tailoring solutions to meet specific requirements.

Kristian Nylén, Kambi CEO and Co-founder, said: “This is a landmark partnership for Kambi with exciting long-term potential. Not only does Choctaw Nation have fantastic, well positioned gaming and entertainment facilities in Oklahoma, but its proven track record in developing successful digital businesses gives me every confidence that together we will create thrilling sports betting experiences for its players.

“Due to these exciting credentials, Choctaw Nation was an obvious partner, so I am therefore delighted it saw the benefits of Kambi’s proven technology and recognised our shared values. Trust remains paramount through each tribal partnership, and we look forward to delivering a best-in-class sportsbook that generates long-term sustainable revenues for the Choctaw Nation.”

Heidi Grant, Senior Executive Officer of Commerce for Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, said: “We are thrilled to have entered into a long-term agreement with Kambi. Adding Kambi’s best-in-class technology and custom player offerings to Choctaw Nation’s brand and market positioning, Choctaw Nation is poised to remain well positioned as the premier, full-service, vertically integrated gaming operator throughout our region.”
