Fanatics completes PointsBet acquisition in New York and Wyoming

In October, Fanatics Betting and Gaming (FBG), a subsidiary of Fanatics Holdings, completed its acquisition of PoinsBet’s operations in New York and Wyoming following regulatory approvals. Fanatics last month closed its acquisition of PointsBet USA in eight states: Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia.

Fanatics entered into a $150m deal to purchase the US business of Australia’s PointsBet in May. As well as the states where the deal has closed, PointsBet is also live in Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, and Ohio, where approval remains pending. As each state becomes part of Fanatics Betting and Gaming, customers will see PointsBet rebranded to “PointsBet, a Fanatics Experience.”
