Two stalwarts of the sports betting market have teamed up to launch a new in-play experience. Sports betting and eGaming product specialist, Zukido have teamed up with Stan James to power the latter’s new in-play application. Input from Perform’s live streaming product means the punters can watch the game live whilst betting on it at the same time.
David Sargeant, Commercial Director at Zukido, says “The new in-play product brings media to its core in a way no other bookmaker product does. Zukido are proud to be working with such a famous brand as Stan James and we look forward to the next phases of this partnership.”
It comes in five different languages and will allow users to bet on the 20+ sports that Stan James offers. There will also be specialist scoreboards for six of those sports including football, tennis, basketball, cricket, snooker and darts.
Denis Kelly, CEO StanJames.com said, “Zukido falls perfectly in line with the best in-play gambling experience that we seek to offer our players. Married to the Perform Live Streaming, the Zukido in-play platform is entirely complimentary to the service and we are extremely excited to be moving forward with David Sargeant and Zukido by building upon what is already an industry leading, in-play experience.”
Gala Coral, meanwhile, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Playtech. It will allow the bookmaker to move a number of its platforms onto technology provided by Playtech.
According to eGaming Review, although the MOU isn’t binding, Gala Coral said the deal with Playtech will “enable a number of key improvements to all the sites [i.e. galacasino.co.uk, coral.co.uk and galabingo.co.uk].”
