Sports betting operator Tipico is taking its US expansion a step further, announcing a new technology hub in the Centennial State.
Indeed, the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade has confirmed Tipico has chosen the state as the location for its new development.
Tipico expects the Colorado offices «to add as many as 441 jobs over the next eight years.»
Currently, the brand owns a 42-person office in Hoboken, New Jersey, having recently launched its sports betting app in Colorado.
Governor Jarid Polis said: “Colorado voters voted to make Colorado one of the first states to legalise sports betting and use the revenue generated to protect our way of life, and precious water resources that support our outdoor recreation economy and agricultural community.
«This move proves what we already know: Colorado is the best place to live and work and 441 new jobs will be created in Colorado thanks to this voter-driven decision.”
Adrian Vella, Tipico US CEO, added: “We are thrilled to announce, in partnership with Governor Polis, our intention to establish a Tipico Sportsbook technology hub in Denver.
“From the world-class universities and collaborative technology community, down to the well-documented high quality of life in the state, every metric during our nationwide search pointed us right to Colorado.
«Now that football season is here and our sportsbook is live in the state, we’re confident that the deep pool of technology talent in Colorado will help us take the Tipico brand to the next level in the US.”
