Market-leading solutions offer customer convenience and engagement

 

Playtech BGT Sports will unveil a range of new products and features at next week’s ICE 2019 that will boost both customer engagement and revenues for retail operators.

The market-leading provider of omni-channel sports betting solutions will reveal the new cashless Tap2bet functionality on its market-leading self-service betting terminals. Currently being trialled in Paddy Power’s shops, the feature allows customers to simply ‘tap’ their debit card in order to place a bet.

This will be joined by PBS’ state-of-the-art content Bet Recommender engine, which uses artificial intelligence to suggest relevant selections and interesting content directly to shop customers. Available in Coral’s retail estate at the moment, it is built with anonymous users in mind and harnesses millions of previous calculations and comparisons.

In a move that brings further innovation to the retail space, Playtech BGT Sports will also be discussing its new collaboration with leading content provider Vermantia. The combined retail solution will give customers the chance to bet on over 36,000 live betting events using pictures and data supplied to in-shop screens by Vermantia, with ready access to PBS’s odds and betting markets on its SSBTs.

These unique features and others like it are set to help spearhead PBS’ move into the U.S. market this year, with a dedicated U.S. area featuring products specific to that growing market featuring on its stand too.

Another significant area of expansion is online, giving PBS the opportunity to talk visitors through a host of developments with its digital client, including its new Level Up gamification feature. This original feature encourages customer loyalty by using sports-focused challenges, milestones that educate them on the depth of the product, and achievements that can reward them with free bets or casinos spins.

Playtech BGT Sports CEO Dr Armin Sageder, MBA, said: “The PBS offering provides operators with a complete armoury of engaging content and customer-friendly tools with which to win over new customers and retain existing ones.

“Collectively, it forms an in-shop sweet spot at the junction of data, pictures and betting convenience which is proven to generate additional income for operators in markets around the globe, including the United States where retail is likely to be a key battleground.”

PBS executives will be speaking to show delegates about new functionality for its BetTracker retail mobile app, including free bets triggered by fun side games accumulator insurance, location-based betting using Sensepass, and a virtual customer card they can use to log in to SSBTs.

They will also be showcasing the company’s Bonus Engine. Integrated with IMS to allow seamless bonusing across all Playtech products, it is capable of offering free bet tokens, vouchers, Acca Insurance and Boosts, deposit bonusing and event triggered bonuses.

To experience these exciting solutions first hand visit Playtech BGT Sports on stand N6-140 at London’s ExCeL conference centre. To arrange a meeting with our commercial directors, please email sales@pbs.one.

Global sports technology company to launch comprehensive programme, combatting match-fixing and data piracy

(ARGENTINA, Buenos Aires – 20 August, 2019) Superliga Argentina, the premier football competition in Argentina and one of the largest leagues in the world, has partnered with Genius Sports to launch a comprehensive integrity and official data strategy.

Through a rigorous review of its integrity strategy and existing rules, 24/7 bet monitoring technology and a series of educational workshops, Genius Sports’ Integrity Services will provide Superliga Argentina with an unprecedented level of protection against match-fixing and betting-related corruption.

Superliga players, coaches, officials and administrators will be trained to identify, prevent and report any threats to the league’s integrity while Genius Sports’ leading Bet Monitoring System will provide 24/7 oversight on global wagering patterns by monitoring global odds movements through its unique predictive algorithms.

To protect the value and integrity of its official data, Superliga will launch a new rights enforcement initiative, identifying both unauthorised scouts operating in-stadia and unofficial data feeds that have been scraped and reutilised. Through Genius Sports, Superliga will be able to control the supply and use of its official data, expanding the league’s global audience and providing new platforms for fans to engage with the live action.

Mariano Elizondo, President of Superliga Argentina, said: “Ensuring the transparency of our games is a fundamental priority for Superliga. We aim to guarantee all our teams with the same rules for every game, which is the main requirement for providing our fans and sponsors with the spectacle that they expect.

“This agreement with a world leader like Genius Sports allows us to work together to combat any threat to the transparency of our games through the same tools used by the most prestigious leagues in world football.”

Fernando Martinez, Head of Commercial Partnerships, LATAM for Genius Sports, said: “Argentinian football is at a critical stage of its growth with increased data quality and access to content driving major developments. This partnership with Superliga sets a precedent for leagues across LATAM to proactively safeguard the integrity and future of their competitions while controlling the collection, management and distribution of their real-time data.”
