Bookmakers set to take up to £500m in wagers during seven-day World Cup/Royal Ascot betting bonanza

 

Monday 18th June, 2018 – Two World Cup games for England and five days of punting at Royal Ascot could see the UK wager half a billion pounds in the next seven days alone.

Leading online bookmaker Betway and the whole of the betting industry is in for an ultra-busy week, with the Three Lions’ opening game against Tunisia on Monday getting the ball rolling before Flat racing’s biggest betting event runs from Tuesday to Saturday, finishing with England’s second World Cup test against Panama.

Betway predict £30-40 million will be wagered per day at Royal Ascot, nudging total bets placed towards £200 million, while England’s participation on Monday and Sunday bookends a betting bonanza that could see total stakes rise to £500m.

Betway’s Alan Alger said: “Every four years, the collision between Royal Ascot and the World Cup results in one of the biggest betting weeks of the year but this year is extra special.

With England games both kicking off and closing a week that has Royal Ascot sandwiched in between, we could be set to see around half a billion pounds bet in just seven days.

Spearhead Studios is thrilled to announce the launch of the video slot Wilds of Wall Street II. The new title is the sequel of the very successful Wild of Wall Street game which was launched earlier this year. Optimised for perfect mobile gameplay, the new slot brings huge potential wins.

Wilds of Wall Street II is a dynamic, new video slot from Spearhead Studios that places players’ in 1980s New York as newbie stock market traders aiming to make it big.

The game’s theme is heavily influenced by classic movies set in that crazy-exciting era that players all know and love. The unique, high-intensity soundtrack builds anticipation of big wins and sets the player in a typical New York atmosphere.

Kevin Corti, Game Development Director at Spearhead Studios, comments: “Wilds of Wall Street was one of our top performers when it was released back in January 2020. Players loved the core expanding reel mechanics and the overall theme, and we felt that a sequel would be a great addition to our growing gaming portfolio.

“In Wilds of Wall Street II, we switched to a ‘ways pays’, rather than pay lines, mechanics as it was a better fit with the core expanding reels gameplay feature. In addition, we wanted to make the free spins features much more accessible, exciting, and volatile, hence we came with the idea of adding more and more wilds to the reels as the free spins progress, leading to an ever-higher potential for big wins.”

The features are designed to perfectly compliment the theme, with any paid base game win triggering free re-spins and expanding reels. Hit a sequence of six wins, and the game will take you into the free spins which are ‘endless’ – terminating only after 3 ‘closing bells’ have been rung.

PandaScore raises $6M to drive esports betting with AI-powered data
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

PandaScore, a startup that provides real-time data for the esports betting industry, has raised €5 million (~$6M) in recent funding. The funds will be used to expand the company’s products for bookmakers, enabling more and better esports betting experiences.

Paris-founded startup PandaScore, which supplies esports bookmakers with AI-powered statistics and odds, announces today that it has raised €5M (~$6M) in funding. The round is led by Serena, with other investors in the round being Alven, sports-tech investor KB Partners and esports owner and investor aXiomatic Gaming.

Esports is estimated to have close to 500 million fans worldwide and the industry accounts for about $1bn in global revenues. Still, it has room to grow when it comes to betting. PandaScore’s real-time AI-powered odds empower betting traders to better leverage this massive entertainment industry.

“Providing game-changing data for bookmakers is our way to fuel the growth of esports,” says PandaScore founder and CEO Flavien Guillocheau. “When bookmakers can offer great esports betting it also helps in raising sponsorships for teams and tournaments.”

Collecting data in real-time from ongoing esports matches and from official sources, PandaScore uses its proprietary artificial intelligence to sift out and analyze the most useful pieces of information as it happens. Betting traders gain an edge utilizing machine learning to set better odds and a larger esports offering.

“Bookmakers are some of the most data dependent companies out there,” says Mr. Guillocheau. “With esport tournaments and fantasy leagues becoming a more significant component of sportsbook offerings around the world, access to PandaScore’s abundance of real time esports odds and data is vital to all the bookmakers we work with. Our vision is to help esports grow by providing the data resources for any esports business.”

PandaScore taps into the trend of a new generation tuning in to esports for entertainment and betting just as much as their older peers have done with traditional sports. The trend has only been emphasized by the recent lockdowns in many countries, which have disrupted regular sports more than they have the online gaming esports industry.

Pandascore has recently signed some of the fastest growing companies in the esports entertainment and esports betting industries as clients, including fantasy esports company Sleeper and leading companion app Strafe, esports betting platform Pixelbet and leading LATAM sportsbook BetCris. The company will use the new funding for further expansion, including hiring for the team in Paris and in Malta, as well as to cover more esport titles.
