he Gold Package is essentially a pure revenue sharing proposition provided through a delivery and support platform - supplied and managed by Inspired - therefore reducing any barriers to the uptake of Inspired’s Virtual Sports for small and medium-sized online operators. Bet1128, the European online gaming operator, went live with Inspired’s Gold Package and core suite of Virtual Sports this week at www.bet1128.com.
The Inspired Virtual Gold Package is an accessible way for operators to provide virtual sports betting including football, horse racing, greyhound racing, motor racing, speedway, and virtual numbers games (including Roulette and Lottery Draw derivatives), which are easily integrated with their existing bet management solution. New events and upgrades will be added to the content offer as they are developed by Inspired’s award winning team. The content – be it a race, match or numbers draw – is generated by Inspired’s sophisticated Virtual Sports Platform (VSP) and streamed using the latest encoding and streaming technology to Gold Package customers.
Steve Rogers, Managing Director of Inspired’s Virtual Sports division, said: “We see the launch of the online Gold Package as being demonstrable of the success of our products online. We have seen through our existing online customer base that the revenues generated are material and are growing parallel with online activity. We are so confident in the performance of our virtual racing products that we are willing to invest in both the upfront and ongoing costs of delivery of the content, to remove what can be costly barriers to entry. We have a significant proportion of the Power 50 signed up as customers, but we also value the small and medium-sized online operators whether they are sportsbooks or more casino-orientated sites. We are excited about making our Virtual Sports more accessible to them and their customers. The launch of our Virtual Sports this week at Bet1128.com shows how easily it can be integrated into existing systems and I am sure that it will be a big hit with their customers.”
Fabrizio Festari, Poker and Casino Manager at Bet1128, commented: “It is clear to see that Inspired has the best quality Virtual Sports out there and also offers the widest range of sporting events, but we were certainly sold on the flexibility of the new revenue-share plan. To be able to have access to this fantastic package of content is extremely attractive to ourselves and our customers. On the back of a successful launch this week, we look forward to a long and prosperous relationship with Inspired.”
