Roar Digital CEO Adam Greenblatt said: “Matt brings a unique combination of experience and expertise in Europe’s most competitive betting environment with a deep understanding of the US consumer and media landscape.

“Matt further strengthens Roar’s foundations and will help us compete for leadership over time as the US market evolves.”

Prevost, who will be based at Roar’s new head office in New Jersey, added: “I am thrilled to join the team at Roar at this historic time for the US sports betting and gaming sector.

“The combination of brands, technology, and market access of the two parent companies will provide a significant opportunity to build a world class sports-betting operation in the US.”

According to GVC, Roar Digital has been selected as the new name for the JV to “give it a distinct identity as it builds market share in the regulating US market” and to combine with MGM’s lion logo.
