Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

SIS (Sports Information Services), the leading multi-channel supplier of 24/7 live betting services, has agreed a deal with Polish operator Betfan for its new Esoccer Competitive Gaming esports betting product.

Betfan customers will now be able to watch and bet on live head-to-head Esoccer events between skilled gamers, with a schedule of 24 matches played out across an eight-hour period each day, seven days a week. This output is soon to be ramped up to 24/7 coverage over the coming weeks.

Betfan recently went live with Ebasketball from SIS Competitive Gaming, an end-to-end solution built specifically for sportsbooks, with the launch proving to be a great success returning significant margins for the operator. Betfan’s customers have access to live streamed pictures, commentary, on-screen graphics with betting triggers, and data, plus an extensive range of markets and prices for over 150,000 live events a year, including Ebasketball events which take place 24/7 in 5-minute quarters.

The addition of Esoccer matches significantly strengthens the SIS Competitive Gaming product and will allow operators to offer an alternative and exciting form of sports betting, complementing their core offering.

Paul Witten, Commercial Director at SIS, said: “We’re very pleased to be adding Esoccer to our SIS Competitive Gaming portfolio and are pleased that Betfan are going live with the content.

“From the initial success of our Ebasketball product with Betfan, it’s clear that their customers have really taken to the fast-paced action and multiple betting opportunities that SIS Competitive Gaming provides, and we expect that to continue now they have access to our Esoccer offering.”

Mariusz Świętochowski, Managing Director at Betfan, said: “Since partnering with SIS, Competitive Gaming has proven to be a huge hit with our customers, with the high-quality product having helped us to increase engagement and drive incremental revenues.

“Esoccer is very popular so naturally we’re delighted to be expanding our esports betting offering through this deal, while we are extremely confident it will be well received by our customers moving forward.”

Be it exciting sports games, games for the entire family, epic journeys into fantastical worlds, or action-packed adventure – 2022 offered a wide range of video game titles to choose from. This can be seen in the German annual charts for the bestselling PC and console games that were released in 2022. The hit sports game ‘EA SPORTS FIFA 23’ (Electronic Arts) captured first place in the list of bestselling new game releases in 2022. Another major success: ‘Pokémon Legends: Arceus’ (Nintendo) from the popular Pokémon series for the Nintendo Switch. This action role-playing game took second place in the list of bestselling games for the year just ended. Third place in the German charts for 2022 was secured by the award-winning open-world game ‘ELDEN RING’ (Bandai Namco Entertainment), which was the result of a collaboration between game developer Hidetaka Miyazaki and author George R. R. Martin. Just two months after its release at the end of October 2022, first-person shooter game ‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II’ (Activision) made it into fourth place. It was followed in fifth place by the action-adventure game ‘LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga’ (Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment), whose missions are based on the most important events from the nine ‘Star Wars’ films.

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

The Hungarian national lottery company, Szerencsejáték Privately Held Company Limited, becomes EveryMatrix’s sixth global lottery client and coincides with the launch of the country’s online sports betting regulation.

B2B iGaming technology provider EveryMatrix has been awarded the public tender to provide the Hungarian state-owned gaming and lottery operator Szerencsejáték Privately Held Company Limited with an end-to-end suite of advanced digital sports betting software solutions and services for its online brand TippmixPro.

Designed to create the ultimate online sports betting experience in the newly regulated market, the multi-year agreement was awarded to EveryMatrix after a 15-month competitive procurement process with more than 25 bidders.

EveryMatrix technology will transform the Hungarian national lottery company and its TippmixPro brand’s digital sports betting offering by integrating its award-winning OddsMatrix sportsbook platform and data feeds ensuring maximum productivity, stability, and scalability.

In addition, EveryMatrix will provide a full range of state-of-the-art turnkey software solutions and services across player account management; virtual sports; bonusing, acquisition, retention, and reactivation; payments and affiliate management.

The agreement comes at the ideal time for Szerencsejáték Privately Held Company Limited following the Hungarian government’s decision to regulate online sports betting which went live on January 1st, 2023.

EveryMatrix has won several World Lottery Association (WLA) and European Lotteries (EL) agreements including Norsk Tipping (Norway), OPAP (Greece), National Lottery (Malta) and Veikkaus (Finland).

Launched in 1991 Szerencsejáték Privately Held Company Limited is a leading operator in the Hungarian online sports betting market and one of the largest businesses in the country. It is a member of the WLA and offers multiple products including lottery games, lottery tickets and sports betting with more than 7,700 nationwide sales points.

The Hungarian national lottery company makes a significant annual contribution to the country’s stable economic growth, financing community, cultural, social, health and sporting initiatives and returns approximately two-thirds of its net gaming revenue – in the form of taxes, fees, contributions, dividends – to the state budget to finance public projects.

Stian Hornsletten, Chief Commercial Officer at EveryMatrix, said: “Since 2016 we have made significant inroads in the lottery sector and now work with some of the biggest organisations in the world, powering and servicing their digital offerings to millions of their customers.

“Winning SZRT ahead of many of our competitors yet again underlines the quality of our technology solutions, services, and expertise across multiple elements, from sportsbook and player account management to bonusing, payments and affiliate management.

“Operations are weighted highly within large-scale agreements such as this and I’m particularly pleased that our operational quality and experience shone through. We are delighted to be working in partnership with SZRT and look forward to supporting them in their digital journey this year and beyond.”

Zoltán Horváth, Sports Betting Director at Szerencsejáték Privately Held Company Limited, said: “We are very pleased to have agreed terms with EveryMatrix following a thorough and highly competitive tender process and we’re confident we have selected an ideal partner.

“We have ambitious plans to extend and enhance our sports betting offering at a time of market regulation to create the ultimate entertainment experience for Hungarian players, and we firmly believe we will achieve this through this partnership.
