The rapid development of esports betting over the last few months has seen a glut of sportsbook services seeking to improve their esports offering. That trend continues with the news that BetCris and Pixel.bet have both agreed to a deal with PandaScore to install the company’s real-time esports odds and data onto each betting site.
The news is great news for PandaScore, who have increased the number of providers they are working with by two and who now have the chance to offer their esports service in two relatively new global markets.
BetCris is a popular sportsbook service that operates largely in Latin America and the news to extend their esports service was met with a very satisfied response from Adam Bjorn, the COO of Plannatech/BetCris.
“We’re delighted to have access to PandaScore’s abundance of real time esports odds and data.” Stated Mr. Bjorn.
“They have feeds for every in-play market we need across all esports and thanks to their efficient collaboration with our development team, we completed the integration in no time.”
The agreement with Pixel.bet is slightly different. The company, part of LeoVegas AB, has launched a number of PandaScore ‘widgets’ across its services. The widgets then allow customers to garner more information about a number of popular esports betting markets and games.
The data tends to focus on information about players and teams competing in esports, such as comparing head to head records of two individual players, or two teams. Furthermore, customers are able to review in-game performance and stats all at the click of a button.
Pixel.bet intends to utilise the PandaScore service to further strengthen its esports offering across the board, particularly focusing on the most popular esports betting games such as CS:GO, League of Legends, and Dota 2.
As Eirik Kristiansen, the CEO of Pixel.bet revealed, his company was the first to utilise the PandaScore widgets on their betting platform.
“We were very impressed with the content capabilities of PandaScore’s esports Widgets,” stated Mr. Kristiansen.
“And I’m exciting that Pixel.bet is the first esports betting operator in the world to offer such an innovative data delivery tool to our players.”
Coup for PandaScore
The two deals, signed within a very short time of each other and integrated across both sites in double-quick time, are a real coup for PandaScore. Since the company was founded back in 2015, it has been one of the companies offering a wider than usual selection of both pre-match and In-play betting markets for all the top esports titles.
Their success has, according to CEO Flavien Guillocheau, been built on the company’s commitment to developing technology, as well as fostering knowledge from leading esports trading experts and data teams.
“Successful esports betting is a matter of good luck and good judgement,” explained Guillocheau.”and whilst PandaScore can’t help with the former, the latter can be greatly enhanced through the data provided to players and [through] our new esports Widgets.”
“We’re delighted to launch this new innovation with leading esports betting operator Pixel.bet and to be providing esports data to a brand as well-regarded as BetCris. We look forward to integrating with more leading operators in the near future.”
