Perform has signed a new deal with World Snooker which means the gambling industry‘s legion of sportsbooks will be able to stream even more billiards than before. The five-year-deal gives Perform the rights to offer live streaming of all World Snooker tournaments online via the liveworldsnooker.tv site. Bookmakers will be able to benefit via the company’s uber-successful Watch&Bet service.
Oliver Slipper, Joint-CEO, PERFORM commented: “We’re delighted to add the World Snooker tournaments to our portfolio of LIVESPORT events and across Watch&Bet. These platforms provide snooker with an opportunity to reach millions of fans globally and also provide an opportunity to commercialise content in regions and sectors that were not previously available.”
In all there will be around 800 snooker matches made available to sites that have signed up to Watch&Bet and it will be an added extra to any punters that enjoy the odd flutter on matches taking place over the green baize.
