Innovative Australian horse racing data specialist teams up with the United Kingdom’s leading independent sports entertainment group

Planet Sport and Racing and Sports have today announced the founding of a joint venture partnership. The two sporting businesses from either side of the world have teamed up to support each other in their respective commercial plans to develop and grow new markets for sports media and content.

Australian technology, data and media company Racing and Sports is eager to raise its profile in the United Kingdom and Irish media and gaming markets and has signed an agreement with Planet Sport to leverage its long-standing experience in developing direct-to-consumer and B2B markets.

The partnership will enable ASX-listed Racing and Sports to tap into Planet Sport’s owned and operated network of sports media titles, its audiences and commercial relationships. Racing and Sports meanwhile will offer both Planet Sport B2B clients and end-user consumers the captivating and expert content and data that has brought considerable success in the Australian market.

“The opportunity to provide Racing and Sports best-in-class racing content in collaboration with Planet Sport is an exciting opportunity and we look forward to working with the Planet Sport team headed by Barrie and Mike to open up mutually beneficial opportunities,” the Managing Director for Racing and Sports, Brent Dolan, said.

Planet Sport, a United Kingdom-based sports entertainment and media business, has a rich history of engaging international audiences with engaging content but will hugely benefit from Racing and Sports’ incisive and innovative data, honed across decades of experience serving the competitive Australian sport media market. The first elements of this partnership are now available in the racecards on PlanetSport. com.

Hailing the launch of the partnership, the Betting and Gaming Managing Director for Planet Sport, Mike Grenham, said: “Racing and Sports are market leaders in the provision of horse racing and greyhound data, so we’re delighted to be working with it in this exciting and mutually beneficial partnership. We’re looking forward to developing some truly innovative propositions together and driving both our businesses to even greater heights.”

As part of the venture, Planet Sport is set to utilise its design, UX and tech build know-how to design and develop Racing and Sports’ fresh new United Kingdom and Ireland website. Planet Sport will also be leveraging its team of expert sport journalists to provide editorial content for the site.

Though today marks the first formal partnership, the two businesses are no strangers having collaborated on a variety of betting and gaming projects in recent years. The two businesses now look forward to working in tandem to provide fans with a seamless and exciting racing experience.

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

EGT’s jackpot Gods & Kings Link made its debut in Bulgaria. The first local gaming establishment to install the product is the largest casino in the country GoldenEye, located in Svilengrad.

“We are very happy to once again have the opportunity to support our partners from GoldenEye by providing them with one of the latest developments from our slot portfolio,” commented Biserka Draganova, Sales Manager for the Balkans and Egypt at EGT. “The fact that out of a total of 500 machines in the casino, 320 are EGT’s is a testament to the great confidence they have in us, and I believe that Gods & Kings Link will show the excellent results expected from it.”

The product is currently available on several cabinets of the G 50 J2 St model, and will be installed on more by the end of June. Gods & Kings Link has 4 levels of jackpot: Minor and Mini, that are fixed for each machine and Grand and Major, which are progressive and can be won with every bet made on any of the 4 games Rise of Ra, Olympus Glory, Ape of luck and Glorious Alexander. The Grand and Major levels are common with EGT’s bestseller jackpot Bell Link, thus creating even greater chances for wealth.

Gods & Kings Link has definitely caught the attention of our customers and in the short period of time we’ve been offering it, we’ve seen a lot of interest in it,” said Mert Caliskan, Casino Operation Director. “The titles in the mix are extremely interesting and provide lots of bonuses and fun during play. This in combination with the possibility of getting even bigger winnings thanks to the connection to Bell Link, which is very popular in our casino, is a guarantee that this will be another very successful EGT product.”
