The NetEnt Live’s Sports Betting Widget is its latest addition to the 2018 FIFA World Cup roadmap and gives the users a chance to play live casino games while betting on the actual sports at the same time.
The Widget functions on the basis of unique streaming technology and content management tools to provide the ultimate gaming experience to its user base. With this new tech, operators can offer live odds on any sport or provide third-party services to any NetEnt Live Game table. The first name on the operators’ list is Stoiximan, with many others following suit. Stoiximan will be able to propound pre, as well as in- play odds. Players can bet on these while using the live casino actions simultaneously.
In the words of Henrik Ferguland (Chief Product Officer, NetEnt Co.), “This product has never been seen before in the market and we are launching it at a very crucial time, with the FIFA tournament being only a few weeks away.
“will be a big opportunity for the operators as the players can use both sports betting feature as well as other features at the same time. In this way, they don’t have to worry about missing out on the subsequent revenue generation.”
According to Stoiximan’s Head of Casino, Ioannis Kalambokis, “We are always concerned about the quality of content provided to our customers. We entered into a deal with NetEnt to offer our users a most innovative product, where Sports Betting would be combined with Live Casino.
“Thanks to the Sports Betting Widget, our members will now be able to enjoy live casino games and not get freaked out about missing the parallel in- play betting during World Cup.”
The Sports Betting Widget is a product of the Chroma key technology. It comes after the launch of NetEnt’s Live Sports Roulette which keeps the players updated with real- time info and game scores during the World Cup matches.
