Soccer is ripe with opportunities to tap into live betting, and we are gearing up for an immense surge in soccer betting activity by delivering our Soccer OddsFactory integration ahead of what will no doubt be an incredible tournament. We are investing the necessary resources to make PointsBet the go-to sportsbook for World Cup betting – and we have the technology in place to prove it. Soccer bettors will have more live options with PointsBet than anywhere else,” Johnny Aitken, CEO at PointsBet USA, said.
“Our continued investment in elevating our in-house sports betting technology and OddsFactory, our proprietary trading feeds solution, has allowed PointsBet to produce up to 8 billion calculations in less than one second when we have a full suite of live games running in parallel. This positions PointsBet to offer bettors with an immense amount of live betting options across all sports, especially for fans who are looking to take part in the World Cup action. PointsBet gives bettors more live betting options on more matches than anywhere else in the US,” Mark Hughes, Chief Product Officer at PointsBet USA, said.
