NOVOMATIC signs with Sportradar for Sports Betting solution
With ICE just a few days away, NOVOMATIC has announced a partnership with leading sports betting solutions provider Sportradar to develop an innovative line of sports betting products and services. NOVOMATIC will initially focus on developing a turnkey solution for retail and other channels that is built around Sportradar’s Managed Trading Services (MTS) and includes cash desks, as well as Self-Service Betting Terminals (SSBTs) with intuitive player environments, and will be first rolled out in the Italian market.
Visitors to ICE Totally Gaming in London will be able to preview the solutions on both the stands of Sportradar brand Betradar #S1-150 as well as the NOVOMATIC Italia area of the NOVOMATIC Group stand #S5/S6. Admiral Sport terminals will be presented on both exhibits with Betradar showcasing a wide range of functionality that includes managed trading services, odds feeds for pre-match, live and virtual sports, statistics and live match centre tools for retail, and NOVOMATIC Italia will demonstrate the highly adaptable, scalable and responsive sports betting system.
Speaking about the partnership, Bartholomäus Czapkiewicz, Managing Director NGI, said: “It has become clear that sports betting is a growing opportunity that we are making serious in-roads into.
