Its primary purpose is to provide a safe and convenient place for sports fans to wager on their favorite teams and players. In addition, a sportsbook allows customers to play fantasy football and other games as well. This type of gambling is very popular with young people.

Flutter, the parent company of fan-favorite sportsbook FanDuel, has reported impressive growth in the US market. In the three months ended June 30, its gross gaming revenue in the US was 51% higher than the year-ago period. The company also operates an online casino and fantasy sports games.
The company is moving closer to opening its own retail sportsbook in Las Vegas. The Nevada Gaming Control Board has recommended that the company open a FanDuel-branded sportsbook at the Fremont Hotel and Casino. The decision will be finalized by the Nevada Gaming Commission on Aug. 25. The sports betting business is legal in more states than ever, but it’s still largely unregulated. This has helped Flutter stock skyrocket.
In addition to FanDuel, Flutter also owns the betting technology firm The Stars Group. Its acquisition of The Stars Group helped it launch its Fox Bet mobile sports betting platform. Last May, Fox purchased a five percent stake in The Stars Group, and has an option to buy 50% of the company within 10 years. The deal was worth $6 billion.
