US-based igaming and sportsbook technology platform supplier Bet.Works has appointed Dr Laila Mintas as chairwoman of the company’s Advisory Board.

Most recently, Mintas served as deputy president for Sportradar US. She has also received a number of awards, including  the Sports Business Journal’s Game Changers Award.

David Wang, Bet.Works founder and CEO said: “We are thrilled to have Dr Mintas chair our Advisory Board. She is an extremely well respected leader in the US sports betting industry with significant experience in integrity and working directly with sports leagues, including the NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, NASCAR, MLS and CONCACAF, which will be invaluable in leading our advisory board and driving the continued growth of Bet.Works”.

Mintas added: “I am very excited to join Bet.Works as the company is uniquely positioned to capitalise on the growth of the US sports betting industry.

“Bet.Works’ cutting-edge enterprise sports betting platform will fill a major void that exists in the marketplace today. In addition, the company’s US-based management team dedicated solely on the American sports betting landscape will serve the company well.

“David will continue to build on their early successes, including the signing of the first nationwide media partner to enter into the sports betting sector with theScore and adding a signature partnership with Dennis Drazin and Monmouth Park in New Jersey,” she continued.

“I look forward to working with my fellow Advisory Board members in bringing Bet.Works across all future regulated sports betting markets in America.”
