BETDAQ launches Streaming API to provide instant pricing for commercial partners
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

BETDAQ has launched a new Streaming API service for its commercial partners that automatically provides instant pricing information across an increased range of markets.

The product improvements remove the need for customers to pull the data via manual requests thanks to an always-on system that constantly streams a tailored selection of updates on price movements and available volumes.

BETDAQ has utilised the Streaming API push technology on its main dotcom website since 2016, ensuring traders and retail clients always have the most up-to-date pricing information.

Full connection to BETDAQ’s ultra-reliable Commercial API feed allows sportsbook operators to take advantage of automated risk management and hedging. The platform processes 18 billion orders annually and has gone a record 500+ days without an unplanned outage.

BETDAQ’s commercial partners can also benefit from the platform’s growing liquidity, which has been significantly boosted since the exchange’s permanent switch to a 2% commission structure that has driven player and liquidity partner acquisition.

Alan Casey, BETDAQ Commercial Manager, said: “The launch of Streaming API takes the BETDAQ Commercial API feed to the next level, ensuring further efficiencies as well as a greater reduction in overheads and resource requirements for our sportsbook partners.

“The successful introduction of 2% commission has been responsible for a marked uplift in trading volumes that has resulted in improved prices and ever-increasing liquidity levels. There has never been a better time to become a Commercial API partner.”

Players at over 1,000 online gambling sites able to submit disputes to eCOGRA

 

The Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) has authorised eCOGRA, the independent testing laboratory, to make available its Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) service to players at certain MGA licensed online gambling operators.

eCOGRA’s fast and impartial dispute resolution service has been available free of charge to players for over 15 years as part of the organisation’s self-regulation activities, and since 2015 eCOGRA has been approved by the UK Gambling Commission to provide its ADR service to remote gambling operators licensed in the British market.

To date, over 10,000 disputes have been handled by eCOGRA, involving leading operators such as 888, White Hat Gaming, bwin.party, Sportingbet, Unibet, 32Red, Bet-at-home, Casino Rewards, Betway, Gamesys, Skill On Net and Mr Green.

Tex Rees, a Clear ADR Accredited Civil and Commercial Mediator, is in charge of eCOGRA’s dispute resolution service, which includes an experienced team committed to resolving most disputes within a week.

“All Malta licensed operators are now required, in terms of the MGA Player Protection Directive 2018, to provide their players with access to an impartial third party dispute resolution service. Since many of our multi-jurisdictional clients are licensed by the MGA, we’ve made available our ADR service to these operators. We know, from their perspective, how important it is that they can come to us for a full suite of compliance services”, Rees said.

Players can currently access eCOGRA’s dispute resolution services at 1,159 online gambling sites listed on www.ecogra.org.
