Amelco lauds “key tribal casino deal” with Atlantis Gaming Corporation
Sports betting software and trading services provider Amelco has lauded the signing of a “key tribal casino deal” that will see the firm produce sportsbooks for 450 properties in 28 US states.
Undertaken through a link-up with Atlantis Gaming Corporation, the agreement will create a turnkey solution for sportsbook operations across retail, mobile, online and self-service sports wagering channels, pursuant to Tribal Gaming Network’s approval to operate across its jurisdictions.
Also hailed “a historic first,” the deal will be one of the first in the US to see AGC’s Pro Football Hall of Fame partnership powered by Amelco’s technology to offer regulated betting for the first time.
AGC’s Pro Football Hall of Fame partnership features its ‘Ask-a-Pro’ format, allowing customers to obtain advice from some of the greatest players and coaches from the sport, in a bid to enable customers to place more informed bets than ever before.
Donald Bailey, president and CEO of Atlantis Gaming, commented: “We’re proud to add leading sportsbook provider Amelco to our Tribal Gaming Network team. As the sportsbook supplier to some of the biggest names in gaming, they’re perfectly matched to utilise one of the most iconic brands in US football, the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
“I am confident that with their market-leading tech and the power of our brand, we’re set to revolutionise the way sports betting is delivered across the gaming and sports communities.”
The partnership marks the latest in Amelco’s ambitious development roadmap which is leading to an increased presence across the US, following regulatory approval from multiple states, as well as partnering with Sportradar in Indiana.
Commenting on the partnership, Leon Wynne, Amelco COO, said: “We’re delighted to announce our partnership with AGC in what we see as a very exciting opportunity to continue revolutionising the US’ approach to sports betting.
“With approval to operate across tribal jurisdictions in 28 states, as well as the combination of AGC’s Hall of Fame brand and our technology, I am sure we have the makings for a powerful synergy between us both.”
In total, Amelco’s US-facing sports wagering platform is now live in three US states, including New Jersey via its partnership with the Stars Group, and will be supporting a host of launches across multiple US states as further regulation permits.
BetConstruct, in partnership with Atlantis Gaming Corporation, has entered into a relationship with the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
While a formal announcement has yet to be issued, the three entities have agreed in concept on the launch of a premium fantasy sports experience in the United States market.
BetConstruct applied a deep understanding of players’ needs to develop a fully customisable fantasy sports software with reliable fantasy data and marketing guidance to 40-plus partners around the world.
The Pro Football Hall of Fame, as one of the most recognized organisations in sports, is examining how the use of its brand can bring an instant fan base to jump start the new Fantasy Sports Platform.
Hall of Fame President & CEO David Baker said: “The Pro Football Hall of Fame is pleased to be exploring how a partnership in the gaming industry can support its important mission to Honor the Heroes of the Game, Preserve its History, Promote its Values and Celebrate Excellence everywhere.”
Jonathan Aiwazian, BetConstruct Head of US Operations, added:“We are thrilled to provide our fantasy sports technology for this exciting venture with the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the Tribal Gaming Network.
“Through BetConstruct’s world-class fantasy sports platform, the leverage of the Tribal Gaming Network, and the trusted brand of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, this partnership will deliver a truly exceptional fantasy sports experience to players.”

Mayor Ben Zahn
I am very excited to be able to share the news that Atlantis Partners has submitted a $450 million proposal for the development of the Laketown area that includes two luxury condominium hotels, a boardwalk shopping/dining entertainment complex with an outdoor stage and amphitheater-style festival grounds. Atlantis Partners is a subsidiary of Atlantis Gaming, and this is a first-class proposal that also includes a jazz club with a 1,500 seat theater, plenty of parking and a marina. All of the construction will be on floating concrete barges. Developing the Laketown area has been something that past Kenner City Councils and past administrations have talked about with no success. But this is something that my administration made a priority, and we believe this is the future of the city of Kenner. We identified some of the challenges that previously prevented companies like Atlantis Gaming from making a commitment and submitting this type of proposal. One of those issues involved the length of a lease that could be granted for the land. But thanks to State Rep. Debbie Villio, with assistance from Sen. Kirk Talbot, Rep. Joe Stagni and Sen. Gary Smith, the legislature unanimously approved allowing a lease for up to 99 years. That was a major victory, and it came during a session dominated by COVID. I also want to thank Kenner District 3 Councilman Glenn Hayes, along with the rest of the City Council and the Economic Development Board and Economic Development Department. We have heard some people ask in the past what is happening in the area of economic development, but we have been careful not to tip our hand about this project. We did that to protect Atlantis and to protect the city of Kenner as well. Please remember that even if we are not talking about economic development it doesn’t mean we aren’t working on economic development in the city. Atlantis Gaming President and CEO Donald Bailey will be in town soon to talk about this exciting proposal at a Kenner City Council meeting, and we are looking forward to the chance to hear more about what could be the most important development ever for the future of our city. As Kenner Economic Development Director Candace Watkins has said, this is both a very glamorous and ambitious proposal that could lead to significant future growth in the city and I couldn’t agree more. I want to again thank everyone who played a role in helping us get to this point, another example of the type of teamwork that makes us all “Kenner Proud.” Kenner Star January '21 "Laketown" Atlantis Partners
