mBET combines all of Sportradar’s key strengths – including data, odds, insights and advertising – into one product, to keep sports fans engaged with content for longer by informing them of the latest betting information and allowing them to place wagers with betting operators during the live competition they are watching.

Sportradar created emBET in partnership with LiveLike, a leading technology company that transforms passive audiences into engaged communities through interactive experiences and gamification features available via its flexible software development kit. Broadcasters’ direct-to-consumer channels evolve into revenue generating platforms with emBET by optimizing the integration of betting operator partnerships; in the process, this allows them to directly benefit from the growing US sports betting market. Likewise, emBET promotes additional wagering opportunities and more effective manners of customer acquisition and retention for betting companies who are featured within the application.

 Sportradar U.S. CEO Arne Rees said: “With audience consumption habits shifting dramatically, it’s more important than ever to create a dynamic viewing experience built on rich data and featuring compelling content. Doing so eliminates the need for fans to turn to second screens or competing channels, while also bringing in new streams of revenue.

An additional benefit of emBET is its ease of integration. emBET was designed to be customizable, in order to address the habits and behaviours of particular viewing audiences. It is also extremely configurable, allowing emBET to seamlessly plug into existing video players, resulting in the ability to get it up and running quickly and smoothly.
