UK and Malta-licensed online gambling operator, Royal Panda, is launching a new sportsbook for UK punters ahead of the 2017/18 European Football season. The new sportsbook will be powered by gaming software and platform provider, BetConstruct, and will be the first time that Royal Panda is expanding beyond its primary online casino product.

“We are delighted to have partnered with Royal Panda to launch its sportsbook ahead of the start of the European football season,” commented George Voyatzis, commercial director at BetConstruct. “Royal Panda is very likely the fastest growing independent casino brand in Europe.”

Launched three years ago, Royal Panda has grown significantly to offer a wide range of options for its customers. This new partnership will allow them to add a sportsbook solution to their established online casino throughout the UK, Europe and emerging markets.

The sportsbook will offer odds on Premier League and Championship matches, as well as a wide range of major sports from around the world. It will provide access to odds on more than 30,000 live events each month, in addition to a range of matchless betting options via its website.

“At Royal Panda, we like to do things properly, especially when it comes to selecting our strategic partners,” said Mark Podd, chief executive of Royal Panda. “BetConstruct’s combination of a great platform, comprehensive selection of bets and first-rate support made them a logical choice for our grand entrance into the exciting world of sports betting.”

This partnership comes at the same time as Royal Panda has signed a three-year sponsorship agreement with English Championship second tier football club, the Queens Park Rangers. The agreement, which runs through to the 2019/20 season, will see the Royal Panda brand logo appear on the front of players’ shirts.
