Hoory wins Innovation of the Year award

The effort that BetConstruct has put in to delivering creative player interaction to the igaming websites of its partner operators hasnโ€™t gone unnoticed after the software developer won Innovation of the Year in Sportsbook and Casino at last night’s SBC Awards.

In the summer of 2019, BetConstruct presented a beta version of its innovative voice-activated gaming assistant called Hoory.ย 

Functionality-wise, the solution bears much resemblance to built-in intelligent assistants on smartphones, said the company, with capabilities which range from navigating users across the device to performing actions on their behalf.ย 

Hoory, it added, was created to deliver a hands-free betting and gaming experience. A simple command is enough to take a user to sportsbook, show the forthcoming matches of a chosen team and their latest statistical data. One request and Hoory is ready to show products from across the whole gaming suite including poker, backgammon and live casino.ย 

A statement read: “BetConstruct will keep on challenging the status quo with its groundbreaking solutions and help the industry to challenge itself.”
