NBC Sports broadcasts to have in-play bettingReading Time: 1 minute

 

NBC Sports Washington is planning to go live with an alternative broadcast that will feature in-game betting when the Washington Wizards play the Milwaukee Bucks on January 11. This will be the first time a broadcasting will have this facility. There will be seven more games of this kind to follow in this season. “We’ve been lucky because sports betting has rolled out in a way that has overlapped with our RSNs,” said David Preschlack, president of NBC Sports Regional Networks, “We’re trying to figure out ways to appeal to casual sports bettors to make the games more interesting … One of the real differentiators of the RSNs business is being able to try new things in different markets.”

At least initially, the feed is likely to appeal more to fantasy sports players than hardcore bettors, but it may set up real betting in the future. A free “Predict the Game” sweepstakes will involve simple questions such as how many points a specific player will score in a quarter or how many assists a player will reach in a half. Fans can visit NBC Sports Washington’s website to answer those questions for a chance to win $500.

“It’s the 1.0 version of where we’re ultimately going,” said Zach Leonsis, senior vice president of strategic initiatives at Monumental Sports & Entertainment, the group that owns the Wizards. “This will get more advanced … The challenge for operators will be to make sure that the game play is supportive and not interruptive of the broadcast itself.”

Google Allows NJ iGaming Companies to Advertise Using Google AdsReading Time: 1 minute

 

Google has updated its Google Ads policy. The behemoth tech corporation will now allow sports betting companies in New Jersey to advertise using the Google Ads.

This decision is a complete reversal of a previous decision by the company to narrow down the presence of gaming apps in the Google Play Store. A number of high-level gaming executives especially in New Jersey have welcomed the new decision.

According to Yaniv Sherman, an 888 executive, the new Google Ads policy update would enable the company to have “a competitive edge, and it broadens the marketing pie for us to choose from.”

The new version of the Google Ads policy is very effective in helping its users to differentiate between regulated-market operators and unlicensed sites targeting users from other parts of the world.

“The Google ads policy on gambling and games will change in june 2019 to allow state-licensed gambling entities to promote sports betting content in new jersey, as part of a limited beta. After the update, advertisers who wish to promote online sports betting content in new jersey must submit a gambling certification request through the updated policy page,” reads a section of the update.”
