Bet365 and Watch&Bet
Bet365 has been at the forefront of the betting industry when it comes to innovation. It was one of the first online gambling companies to offer Mobile betting. And now, Bet365 is again in the news for doing what it takes to keep its existing customers happy and to make new ones join the UK gambling giant.
Bet365 has entered a partnership with Watch&Bet, a major supplier of live sports video to online sportsbooks.
Watch&Bet allows players to watch and bet in-play their sports from their mobile devices. Watch&Bet has a deal with 200 rights holders and transmits globally and streams 11,800+ fully produced live sports events every year. This makes it easy for players to watch live sports events and horse racing as they happen and on the go.
Martin Davies, Bet365′s Chief Technical Officer stated that as it is the Mobile era, they are totally set into fully exploring this sector. It is the same thrill as when internet gambling was launched 10 years ago. Bet365’s software developers had quite some challenges to face in order for them to be able to offer video streaming service across multiple and different mobile platforms. They have also made this system detect at which speed the player is on so that the latter may experience the best quality their phone can provide.
At the same time, Davies said that Mobile phones are easier to work with than computers as it is set for one size of screen. Therefore, his team of developers had to concentrate on performance and speed rather than screen size issues.
And as if this was not enough, Bet365 will be offering the tablet version of Watch & Bet during 2012.
Bet365 are an innovative gambling venue that ensure they are making full use of the technolgy avaialble to them. They ensure that their players are well catered to on whatever platform they choose to play at Bet365.
