Only a few weeks after launching a retail location of its flagship-brand Unibet Sportsbook at Mohegan Sun Pocono in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, Kindred Group went live with online Unibet sports wagering and iGaming in mid-November.
The brand is partnered with sport betting platform provider Kambi Group and online gaming platform provider Pala Interactive in the Keystone State.

The parent company of 11 global online gambling brands, including Unibet, Kindred Group has more than 26 million customers in over 100 countries around the world.
Aviram Alroy, vice president of interactive gaming at Mohegan Gaming and Entertainment, said, “We’re thrilled to introduce to our customers an opportunity to place bets and game online within the state borders. Our sportsbook lounge is a highly engaging and joyful experience on-premises and Kindred Group are able to extend that experience online through our strategic partnership.”
