Two months ago in August, Penn Entertainment signed a 10-year $2 billion stock and cash partnership with ESPN to allow the media giant to use ESPN’s name on its online betting platform. In this regard, Penn also suspended its relationship with Barstool Sports to soften the path to the aforementioned partnership. 슬롯머신사이트
Jay Snowden, CEO of Penn Entertainment, commented on the partnership when the company was looking to transition from Barstool Sportsbook to ESPN Bet in November, saying, “It will definitely be done before Thanksgiving.” The official date has not been decided yet.
In addition, the mentioned date, or mid-November, will be exactly the 11th week of the start of the NFL season. Also, a football match representing the 2022 Super Bowl rematch between Kansas City and Philadelphia was scheduled for Nov. 20. In this regard, Snowden recently reiterated that ESPN Bet’s debut in the middle of the NFL season would not be detrimental. According to LSR, he said, “I also think the middle of the season we start is actually good. … I think we can make a lot of noise and get a lot of attention.
And I think you’re probably showing that people can reload in the middle of the year with new apps and new experiences that are fully integrated with ESPN because they burned most of their free bet promotions and deposit matches throughout the year. And based on what we’ve seen in Ontario and all the improvements we’ve made to our products, we’re really pleased with our ability to sustain people even after they’ve been at the top of the year
According to the aforementioned sources, ESPN is currently primarily engrossed in its debut and is refusing to provide additional information at this time, but the company may try to provide promotional opportunities to customers with its new product, ESPN+.
In addition, at this point, ESPN already has many existing sports league rights contracts. That could contribute to a one-day stream with integrated betting slips that are almost identical to Genius Sports’ BetVision products used by Fanatics Sportsbook in the NFL during this season.
