Platform provider Digitain has revealed that it has gained exclusive betting rights with the Table Football Federation of Armenia to provide real-time odds in a series of table football tournaments, making the agreement the first of its kind for the sport.
The competition, which is being trialed by Digitain, will feature a total of 400 matches during the week-long process, with games being played in parallel to each other every 30 minutes.
The service will only be available to domestic customers, however Digitain has revealed its ambitions to scale its services further if the trials are successful.
Harutyun Vardanyan, COO at Digitain, stated: “At Digitain, we’re all about delivering the next generation of sportsbook by ensuring our partners are always ahead of the game when it comes to differentiating themselves from the competition.
“We are delighted to become the world’s first supplier to offer live odds and streaming for table football to an international audience. The sky’s the limit for this sport’s untapped potential, so we are proud to lead the way in this exciting new vertical. Players far and wide consider themselves to be masters of the sport, and we are confident that our offering will do wonders for attracting even more players given its global popularity.”
The move will see Digitain collaborate with a national operator, providing the unnamed bookmaker with the first worldwide table football tournament that offers live betting.
Digitain will also live stream the event, which is based in a custom built state-of-the-art studio, alongside other international sporting fixtures, with plans to collaborate with upcoming international tournaments to take its offering worldwide.
Participants from Digitain’s international operator network will also be offered the service if the table football betting goes global, offering both pre-match and live betting for the sport in 2020.
