There’s only one week to go until Betting on Sports kicks off, and SBC has been catching up with the sponsors of the event.
Speaking to Conall McSorley, Business Development Director of GBE Technologies (gbet), he explained that the industry should keep a keen eye on the developing relationship between Fox Sports and The Stars Group in the US.
What are you looking forward to at Betting on Sports?
Meeting existing and potential customers, moderating a forum on LIVE betting on Thursday and catching up with industry friends at the networking events.
What are you promoting at Betting on Sports?
gbet has a mobile first, sports book first, proven and highly scalable platform that currently processes 25,000 bets a minute. We want to speak with Operators who want to have greater ownership of their platform and sports book offering and/or suppliers who are looking to offer white-label solutions to multiple brands across multiple jurisdictions from one player account management platform.
What industry innovation will capture the most attention in 2019?
I am fascinated to see how Allsported, the Racing Post collaboration with TXOdds and Banach, designed to provide a horse-racing managed solution for Operators will fare.
Which sports betting operator has impressed you the most in 2019?
Skybet had received one or two knuckle wraps from the regulator a number of months ago, but has really reacted positively and are now standard bearers for the entire industry with their approach to responsible gambling. I think that dedicating TV advertising inventory focusing on responsible betting and creating a dedicated responsible betting department have demonstrated an exemplary approach.
What sports betting partnership has stood out in the past 12 months?
The relationship between Fox Sports and The Stars Group in the US, really could be a “game changer”, so interested to see how that progresses.
If you could attend one sporting event, what would it be?
I’ve been lucky enough to have attended most events on my bucket list… but to see Ireland in a Rugby World Cup Semi-Final this year would definitely be very special!
Which parts of the conference agenda have caught your eye?
The live betting discussion that I moderate on Thursday looks unmissable… !!
