news in brief 200x141Worldlink is the new betting and gaming partner of the Ryman Football League. The terms of the deal will see them supply club specific portals for any club in the Premier, North and South divisions and give fans of each club the chance to bet on their team through a personalized portal. In addition to supporting the clubs, the deal will also help the community around them and is in association with BetButler. It ensures clubs will get a share of any losing bets placed on sporting events, poker and casino games, and Neil Riches, MD of Worldlink, added: “I am absolutely delighted to announce the Ryman League as the first major League in the UK to take our unique service. As well as providing a first class service to the clubs’ fans and local community it will provide an additional income stream to go towards the ever-increasing running costs of a football club. Crucially, it can provide income all year round, particularly outside the normal football season.”

Kambi Sports Solutions have entered Spain once again and signed a deal with Egasa Group. Kambi will deliver a sports betting solution for the firm and it will be launched once the regulated Spanish market opens. The move follows a similar contract that Unibet’s B2B arm signed with Acrismatic and Carlos Lopez, general manager at Egasa, said: “I have followed Kambi and their competitors for several years and I am confident that we have signed an agreement with the best B2B Sportsbook supplier you can find on the market. With the ambitions Kambi and Egasa have, we will be one of the leaders across all channels in the Spanish betting market.”

Paddy Power is the latest company to take the Latin American plunge and invest in some horse racing streaming rights for their site. The Irish-based firm signed up to the SIS+ channel that shows racing from Chile, Argentina and Uruguay. Brent Dolan, Director of Operations at SIS, added: “We’re delighted to be working with Paddy Power who have provided valuable feedback in helping us shape the service. They were using the service across their retail estate and online was a logical next step for them.”
