Amelco has become the second provider to go live in Arkansas in a deal that will see the Saracen Casino utilise the group’s sports betting solution.

Representing one of four licences initially issued, this alliance has seen the gaming property go live state-wide with its BetSaracen sportsbook and mobile app.

This agreement follows Betly, which is powered by the Gamewise joint venture of Delaware North and Gaming1, going live earlier in the year in partnership with Southland Casino Racing.

Carlton Saffa, CMO at Saracen Casino, noted: “We are delighted to integrate Amelco’s platform for this landmark deal, which sees sports betting go live in Arkansas for the first time. 

“Establishing an online presence is clear evidence of Saracen’s ambition in the online sports betting space, and choosing Amelco’s high-quality platform is representative of our commitment to providing the best possible offering for the state’s players.”

Following the launch of the Saracen Casino’s online platform, which is lauded as “another major landmark,” Amelco is now live across 14 states alongside the likes of Flutter, Hard Rock Digital, FuboTV and Wynn Interactive

“It’s great to be out of the blocks as one of the first suppliers in the state to go live with state-wide mobile,” stated Brandon Walker, Head of Amelco USA. 

“Arkansas is a very exciting state to go live in and Saracen Casino holds plenty of growth potential as one of the first operators to debut in the state.

“We’re all about delivering solutions for our partners that exactly fit their needs. We see this as a great example of making that happen, delivering to Saracen’s unique requirements for homegrown market conditions.”
