Earlier this year, bet365 and Genius expanded their collaboration to include additional streaming solutions. This helped bet365 develop more diverse content while at the same time strengthening the duo’s B2B relationship. More recently, Genius inked a strategic exclusive data and integrity partnership with the Australian Professional Leagues. The announcement came last week and saw the company become the exclusive Official Data Partner of the Isuzu UTE A-League Men and the Liberty A-League Women. At the same time, Genius agreed to protect the integrity of sports under the terms of the deal.
