On Wednesday, Fanatics Sportsbook received a mobile sports betting operator license in Tennessee. On Thursday, the mobile sports betting platform launched its beta version to a select group of Tennessee users.
While the app is not available to the general public, it’s the company’s first mobile entrance into a state in any capacity.
“We started this journey with the goal of developing the best product and experience for sports fans,” a company spokesperson told Sports Handle. “Today, in Tennessee, we are giving a small group of customers access to our beta product to help us do just that. We are incredibly excited to work with our customers, get their feedback, and deliver the product that sports fans deserve for our public launch later this year.”
Little detail was provided as to the specifics of the beta platform and launch, but Fanatics Sportsbook is using Amelco source code.
Fanatics Sportsbook’s growing U.S. presence
Fanatics opened a retail sportsbook at FedEx Field in Maryland toward the end of January. Fanatics Sportsbook also plans to launch a mobile betting platform in Maryland soon, although no official timeline has been provided for that launch.
The mobile sportsbook is expected to go live in Massachusetts in May, a couple of months after the state’s March 10 mobile sports betting launch.
Additionally, Fanatics is licensed in Ohio, which launched mobile betting on Jan. 1. It’s unknown when exactly Fanatics Sportsbook will go live in Ohio, but it is expected to happen sometime in 2023.
