“Player satisfaction remains at the very core of our strategy, and this awaited addition makes our online Sports product the most comprehensive in France

Kévin Brocard, chief operating officer at Sportnco, added: “We’re delighted to welcome a pari-mutuel specialist in our DFS common pool and strengthen our partnership with PMU. Our operating model is built around high volumes, and this is a significant step up in that direction.

“We’re very ambitious with this product and we’re 100% focused on delivering the best DFS solution to the market.”
