Super Group Acquires Digital Gaming Corporation to Enter the U.S. Gambling Market
Super Group currently operates in 23 countries across Europe, Africa and the Americas. Most sportsbooks that are popular in non-U.S. markets do not have licenses in the U.S. Therefore, this is a big opportunity for SGHC. This is because as DGC hold a license in 12 States and are currently in operation live in 8 of them.
At the moment, they are live in Iowa, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Arizona, Colorado, Indiana, Virginia and Ohio. However, by first quarter of 2023, they expect Louisiana to join Arizona, Virginia and Ohio on their Sports Betting Platform.
In addition, last Sunday, DGC had the launch of their Betway brand in Ohio during NFL Sunday. This was done in partnership with Belterra Park.
