Sportium inaugurates its first betting corner in Puerto Rico

San Juan, February 23, 2024. Sportium, a global leader in sports betting and entertainment, has officially begun its operations in Puerto Rico this February, opening its first betting corner at the Hipódromo Camarero, an emblematic place for horse racing in the country. The inauguration of the space, called Sportium Camarero, coincided with the celebration of the Super Bowl, an event that arouses great interest and expectation in a country where American football has a great fan base. All those attending the event were able to enjoy the match while placing live bets with the Sportium terminals.

The event was attended by prominent authorities, including the mayor of Canóvanas, Lornna Soto, and the director of the Equestrian Sports Bureau of the Gaming Commission of the Government of Puerto Rico, Mónica Andreu.

The alliance with Camarero allows Sportium to complement the equestrian offer already established in the country with sports betting, both at racetracks and in agencies, thus continuing its commitment to extend its leisure and entertainment offer throughout Latin America.

The international expansion of the betting house began in 2016, and currently it already has a presence in 8 countries: Spain since 2008; Panama, since 2016; Colombia since 2017; Peru and Mexico, from 2022; in Italy and the Dominican Republic, from 2023; and now Puerto Rico. At the same time, it continues working to carry out a progressive expansion to other countries with regulated markets.

“The opening of this first point in Puerto Rico represents a strategic step in our Latin American expansion plan. We are proud to have been able to close an agreement with a partner with the recognition and excellence of Camarero, allowing us to inaugurate this first point in a place as emblematic and representative of the country as the Hipódromo Camarero. We hope that it will be well received by the public and that our sports betting offer can be complemented with the already established equestrian offer,” highlights Joan Agut, director of International Development at Sportium.
