Betinvest lays foundation for esports' future through OMG.BET partnership
Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

Strengthening its goal to develop the esports industry internationally, Betinvest’s latest platform integration with OMG.BET showcases why their new iFrame integration, innovative marketing tools and 24/7 client support is the ideal launching pad for the next wave of esports developers. Vitalii Humeniuk, eSports Development Manager at Betinvest, uncovers the nuances behind the B2C platform partnership and why the ‘Oh My God’ phrase exemplifies the solution’s winning charm!

What’s the background behind the concept and design for OMG.BET?
OMG.BET is our client and as a B2B provider we worked with them to supply a platform, odds and expertise to chime ahead of the site launch at the end of April. We helped develop the platform in accordance with the global move towards minimalism and fewer devices, meaning that it has been optimised to look great and to run smoothly across mobile, computers, tablets, laptops and TV screens as well.
The idea behind the brand’s logo and the platform name was the “Oh my God!” feeling that people often experience in their lives and because it best describes the feeling of winning. Of course, all players experience both positive and negative emotions – sometimes our favourite teams lose – but in general, playing and watching games puts fans in high spirits.
Despite the fact that OMG.BET has only recently launched, we are proud it has already distinguished itself from other bookmakers in a few ways, primarily through the simplicity of its design.
The idea is that, when you are on OMG.BET, you’ll dive right into the world of esports, the world of games. Fans love this world. There aren’t many bookmakers that offer esports separately from traditional sports. Our customers who aren’t interested in sports like football or basketball see this as a real advantage.
The second distinction is that Betinvest’s team of traders and analysts provide odds for special markets that nobody else in the industry offers. For example, you can place a bet on the probability that a particular player will leave their team or return to it, or even bet on the probability that the Dota 2 heroes will be released as little surprises in Kinder eggs.
In addition, we can proudly and confidently say that OMG.BET is among the top five leaders for the number of live and pre-match events offered. All of these distinctions from partnering with Betinvest as their provider are part of our esports strategy, which allows any provider or bookmaker to integrate with our iFrame solution and benefit from our progressive eSports platform and odds capabilities.

The platform aims to raise betting culture and help popularize and develop eSports, what new ideas are Betinvest and OMG.BET bringing to the table?
We want to help young people to realise that playing or watching games isn’t a waste of their time, but actually can help them to build a good career. We plan to hold our own competitions as well as supporting the development of amateur leagues and tournaments. We’ll be creating opportunities for young players to put themselves out there and move up to professional teams. We hope to make a significant contribution to the development of the esports industry and to young people’s experience of it.
Creating original content and sharing news about esports is an integral part of the OMG.BET platform and their team is very adept at engaging with the target audience. Our partner closely follows all the tournaments, famous athletes and industry innovations so every customer can find up-to-date news.
As their provider we have been able to provide our expertise and experience, and as we work with other organisations we are able to develop strategies for other brands – even those that have no relation to betting, like game studios and esports tournament organisations.

Which markets is OMG.BET targeting?
Betinvest traders cover all the top esports events from around the world, 24/7.  To begin with, OMG.BET is targeting predominantly at Europe and CIS countries, but once they find some good strategic partners who want to develop the betting industry in Asia and the States, they’ll be delighted to work with them. Esports has reached substantial level in both those markets, so we’re looking forward to providing them with a unique betting product.

How does it feel to be forging a new path in esports wagering?
It’s certainly an interesting experience for us to be concentrating so many of our resources on the development of a product with customers who are different from traditional sports enthusiasts. A love of games unites all esports fans and it’s no secret that people love playing games. The desire to play does not disappear with age, it is only the games that change.

Where do you see esports’ growth over the next few years?
Over the past few years, the esports industry has grown dramatically. For example, we’ve seen the addition of the Battle Royale genre which is designed for big maps where teams or individuals must try to stay alive. It is well-liked by much of the audience, with games becoming popular in the blink of an eye. Looking to the future, the industry will continue to develop rapidly and we envisage that one of the next steps will be to make use of more virtual reality technology.
