Quinton Singleton is now the Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Bet.Works.
Singleton formerly worked for Scientific Games, where he was responsible for the rollout of US sports betting.
This appointment is the second senior role that Bet.Works filled this month. At the beginning of January, the company announced Dr. Laila Mintas would serve as chairwoman of its advisory board. Mintas is a former US deputy president for sports data company Sportradar.
What Singleton’s role will entail
As COO, Singleton will focus on market strategy and operations. He will take responsibility for delivering Bet.Works’ “omni-channel sports betting and iGaming platform into existing and newly regulated jurisdictions across America.”
Bet.Works’ Founder and CEO David Wang expressed his pleasure with the appointment:
“Bet.Works is very pleased to have Quinton join our management team. He has been at the forefront of the U.S. gaming industry for many years and significantly involved, specifically, in the legalization and expansion of sports betting in the U.S.
Quinton’s experience will be tremendously valuable in accelerating the growth of Bet.Works into multiple existing and emerging regulated states.”
Bet.Works plans New Jersey launch in 2019
The first state where Bet.Works will launch is New Jersey. Media company theScore will utilize Bet.Works for its mobile platform and will partner with Monmouth Park Racetrack.
Bet.Works will provide the sports betting technology as part of an “exclusive nationwide multiyear agreement.”
Singleton referred to the deal in his reaction to the new position:
“Bet.Works is building an industry leading team to complement its market-leading technology and targeted rapid U.S. expansion. Obtaining the first dual certification of GLI 19 and 33 standards was a key step to establishing our readiness for the U.S. market and we are looking forward to going live with theScore in New Jersey in 2019.”
Despite a new Wire Act opinion from the federal government, the sports betting industry remains optimistic and pointed toward expansion.
