UltraPlay shaping the future of eSports
In comparison to traditional sports, eSports is a very dynamic and fast-developing sector dedicated to answer the audience’s requirements for thrills, entertainment and superb betting experience. It is mostly attracting Millennials – one slice of the betting market that has always been of great interest to the gaming operators around the globe.
Driven by the constant desire to set trends by offering innovative and top-notch products to the iGaming industry, in 2014 we decided to start covering eSports. It is worth pointing out that at that time eSports was still new and widely unknown. We built the foundations of the eSports betting that we know today. A lot of resources were invested in order to build the high-quality product that appeals to both players and operators. Now, our eSports betting suite has all it takes to operators to be a leading eSports betting brand by offering the widest coverage on the market, the most in-play events and the richest range of markets of the most favorite competitive games worldwide.
The reason behind the fruitful business partnerships we subsequently achieved and continue to develop comes from our combined knowledge, quality products and approach towards all involved in the international eSports scene. UltraPlay’s eSports division holds exclusive rights for most if not all eSports tournaments and works closely with numerous organizations, which enables the company and in-house traders to have a strong advantage in the live odds provision.
We have recently presented our enhanced eSports live betting model which was tremendously boosted in terms of markets offering on the most favorite eSports. Players definitely feel the next level of gaming experience by having the chance to place more bets such as on Decider Map Played, Correct Score, Map Advantage. UltraPlay was also the first to provide live odds on FIFA WorldCup Interactive and gathered a great interest from all over the world as the first odds provider to cover it live. The pre-match and in-play betting coverage by UltraPlay goes beyond the most popular titles as CS:GO, Dota2 and League of Legends, with new and exciting titles as King of Glory, Heroes of the Storm, GWENT and many others.
It’s the knowledge, expertise and experience that we provide our clients so that they stand out from the crowd. Knowing the target audience is step number one. Millennials are a main audience for our products, and we work to address every innovative concept that could be of interest to them. We also build a different relationship with them not only based on bonuses and slim margins. Even though the market in sports betting is quite saturated, this is not the case in eSports betting. It has a huge potential, you just have to know how to tap into this new market.
