Amanda Brewer, the Canadian country manager for Kindred Group, and Will Hill, Canadian vice-president of business development for Sightline Payments, provided their insight into the first quarterly report presented by iGaming Ontario on the province’s regulated sports betting and igaming business. Brewer and Hill both call for patience, pointing to a market making the transition from grey to white, a soft spot in the sports calendar between April and June, and the industry missing major players such as Super Group, PokerStars and Pinnacle in the opening quarter.
Aubrey Levy, the senior VP of content and marketing for The Score, also joined the show to talk about the addition of Jon Lovitz, Russell Peters and Patrick J. Adams to theScore Bet’s “Get Into Bet Mode”campaign. Levy, Brewer and Parleh Media Group CEO Mark Silver discussed the anticipation for the betting industry around the start of a busy fall sports season, highlighted by the NFL’s regular season getting underway.
Host Steve McAllister also brought in sports bettor Tony Luccisano to give his best bets for the U.S. Open tennis men's and women's finals.
