he deal represents a landmark development for both companies. Gamesys will enter the sportsbook business for the first time, while Metric Gaming establishes itself among the market leading suppliers of sportsbook solutions.
Metric’s SuperLive platform has already garnered industry attention for its mobile-optimization and seamless handling of the company’s flagship SuperLive markets, enabling in-game, instant gratification betting opportunities (such as whether a goal will be scored in the next sixty seconds) while customer accounts are credited in real time. The platform has now been outfitted with best-of-breed traditional pre-game and in-game sportsbook content as well, representing the first truly mobile, next generation full sportsbook technology.
“This is an exciting step for Gamesys,” said Lee Fenton, Gamesys‘ CEO. “We see tremendous potential in Metric’s technology, and believe our companies‘ visions are aligned for this industry’s future.”
“Gamesys’ track record in the gaming industry speaks for itself,” added Metric’s President & CEO, Peter Bertilsson. “They themselves build great technology so we are honored that they recognized the power of our platform to help them enter the Sports market.”
