Shakedown Fees

The messenger with this new need, Sports Manage has learned, has been the Switzerland-based Sportradar itself. The company has proposed specific Nevada sportsbook operators concerning the new fee at the NBA’s directive.
Resources state Sportradar approached multiple sportsbook operators who have obtained the company’s betting data feed called Betradar, and used it to access the NBA data feed, with the new terms prior to the onset of the NBA playoffs.
Around precisely the same period, Sportradar, doing the bidding of Major League Baseball, told particular sportsbooks they will need to fork over a»royalty» of 0.25 percent of wagers shot on MLB contests for entry into the league’s official feed via Betradar, sources said. These discussions stay ongoing.
«What I have heard, and individuals are hesitant to go on record, is that the leagues are demanding this to find the official Betradar data feed, you finally have to pay a quarter percentage of handle,» said Robert Walker, Director of Sports Book Operations for Nevada-based bookmaker USBookmaking. «I have discovered the leagues, that are the NBA and MLB, want a charge for in-game wagering data, in addition to the existing fees.»
Walker previously ran a few of the biggest sportsbooks in Nevada including those at the MGM Mirage and also for Boyd Gaming.
«My sources inform me that the need is coming from the data supplier, Betradar,» Walker explained. «I don’t understand if the leagues actually reached themselves out. I think that they’re strong arming Betradar, who’s coming back and saying this is what we must get.»
The NBA, MLB and Sportradar didn’t respond to Sports Handle’s request for comment for this story.
By way of history, the NBA, in lockstep with MLB, has lobbied state and national lawmakers since January 2018 for what was initially called an»integrity fee» — a fee that would call for state-licensed sportsbooks to cover expert leagues a 1 percentage off-the-top cut of all legal sports stakes on each individual leagues’ games. At the moment, the NBA and MLB are asking for 0.25 percent and calling it a»royalty» rather or simply»compensation.»
So far, no state has obliged the leagues’ petition. However this week,Tennessee became the first state to pass a legislation (Governor Bill Lee will leave it unsigned and let it become law) that includes a»data mandate» requiring, with a few murky language, that licensed books buy»official league info» to electricity any in-play gambling markets it may provide.
