Kambi Beats Tough Competition
During a recent conference, Kambi CEO Kristian Nylén said that the company has worked hard to establish itself as a trusted brand and that the tribal gaming boards recognize their efforts. Soon after the conference news of Kambi securing a contract with the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indians to manage their sportsbooks and mobile apps in the state surfaced.
Various other companies were in the running, but tribal leaders ultimately settled on Kambi. The selection process was described as competitive, and all the stakeholders had to bid for the company of their choosing.

Kambi will manage the sportsbooks and mobile apps of all three casinos. The company plans to create self-service kiosks at each of the properties. Customers will find all the information that they might need at the kiosks. It also plans to introduce its “bring your own device” initiative to the casinos, which will allow customers to place wagers from their cell phone devices.
