Genius Sports scores data deal with Resorts World in New York

Genius Sports has entered a data partnership with Resorts World in New York to support the Genting Group-owned operator with the recent launch of its new sports betting app in the state.

Under the deal, Genius Sports will provide its LiveData and LiveTrading solutions, powered by official data, to Resorts WorldBET, which went live in New York earlier this month.

The partnership will include Genius Sports’ Nascar official data-driven in-race betting markets, as well as exclusive National Football League official sports data-powered products such as access to the league’s real-time statistics, proprietary Next Gen Stats (NGS) and official sports betting data feed.

In addition, Resorts WorldBET will receive real-time data feeds and in-play pricing for football’s English Premier League alongside International Basketball Federation events and International Volleyball Federation leagues around the world.

“We are excited to partner with Genius Sports and offer the most cutting-edge technology with real-time data so that customers stay ahead of the game,” said Darlene Monzo, chief marketing officer of Genting Americas East, which operates Resorts WorldBET.

“Mobile sports betting in New York is primed to lead the nation and our world-class platform offers exactly what customers are looking for: an innovative mix of speed, reliability and access to the most advanced data available.”

Genius Sports chief executive Mark Locke added: “With over 20 million people and a rich sporting history, the New York online sports betting market has enormous potential.

“Resorts WorldBET is set to be one of the key players in the market and Genius Sports will be central to their offering, providing premium exclusive content on top tier competitions including Nascar, EPL and NFL.”
