sis live logo 2009SIS will market a new pool betting based game in August after a successful trial during Euro 2012. Contagious offers bettors the chance to bet into a pool in-play with a jackpot awaiting the winner. SIS is providing data for the service and are targeting both retail and iGaming sectors. Dominic Atkinson, head of business at SIS, added: “We have worked closely with Contagious on getting this product to market. We believe it’s the first of its kind where you can bet into a pool during a football match. It also has a lottery element and it’s risk-free to the bookmaker and, taken all together, those factors make it an exciting product. It’s appropriate that Contagious has received the stamp of approval from the testers in the week that the new football fixtures have been released.”

Stan James has added virtual sports streaming to their offering thanks to an update from game developer Zukido. There are six new games in total including football, greyhounds and horse-racing thus giving customers more variety. Zukido has also added new specialized scoreboards for rugby and ice hockey, in the process bringing the number on the site up to ten. Stan James CEO Denis Kelly, commented: “Stan James is committed to continually advancing our product and technology and this latest version of the in-play product is a real step forward.”

CryptoLogic have applied to delist their shares on the NASDAQ with the last day of trading planned to be June 26 2012. The Amaya Gaming Group owned firm won’t be floated on any other U.S. stock market and they will be terminated once removed from the NASDAQ.
