The Royal Panda brand, best known for its online casino games, has entered the competitive world of sports betting. The online gaming operator based in Malta and the UK announced that it signed a partnership agreement with software provider BetConstruct in June.
The announcement followed that of Royal Panda’s three-year Queens Park Rangers Football Club sponsorship.
Royal Panda CEO Mark Podd said that choice of partner was one the online gaming operator took seriously. He said the variety of betting options available on the software provider’s platform were among the reasons BetConstruct was chosen for the job.
Podd added that he believed the agreement will allow the brand to further its expansion and evolution.
In the meantime, the gaming operator is focussing on being able to offer players and punters online sports betting on as many as 30 000 events every month, as well as matchless betting during certain sport seasons such as football.
BetConstruct commercial director George Voyatzis said the timing of the Royal Panda agreement meant its sports betting offerings would go live as Europe’s football seasons were about to kick off.
He added that this, together with Royal Panda’s vision and the software provider’s platform, could see the operator’s brand become one of the continent’s fastest-growing.
According to Voyatzis, the gaming operator’s sports betting offerings would complement its online and mobile casino games, rather than detract from them.
This continues to be a busy year for BetConstruct. In addition to the Royal Panda agreement, the software provider also penned agreements with companies such as the Atlantis Gaming Corporation, Tipsport, and Booming Games.
In addition to a sports betting platform, the provider also offers an online and mobile casino platform.
The Atlantis agreement will see BetConstruct and the corporation develop a US casino operator-focussed platform. The Tipsport agreement, on the other hand, will see the Czech sports betting operator use the software provider’s live scouting data in close to 1000 land-based outlets throughout the Central European country.
BetConstruct had other important news of its own last month as well. The software provider announced that it had grown its games offerings through an agreement with developer Booming Games.
The software provider hopes that these, together with other agreements made in the past few years, will further enable it to expand its global footprint to reach many more operators, punters, and players.
