Digitain and Pokerdom launch new sportsbook ahead of World Cup

Armenian sports betting and casino platform provider Digitain has linked up with Pokerdom, the world’s largest Russian-language poker community, to launch a new online sportsbook.

The new site takes in 65 different sports, 7500 leagues and 3000 betting markets, and comes just a few months before the 2018 Russia World Cup.

Powered by Digitain’s fully-managed sportsbook platform, next year’s World Cup is one of 30,000 live events that Pokerdom players will now be able to access each month.

Suren Khachatryan, Digitain CEO, said the site was the first they had developed for a poker network, and demonstrated their ability to diversify the platforms of industry leaders across the globe.

He added: “We have been working hard to forge new partnerships in different parts of the world, and Pokerdom represents the next step for us.

“We are very excited to have teamed up with the number one online poker site in the CIS [Commonwealth of Independent States] to offer their players sports betting, and we can’t wait to see how business builds in the run-up to next year’s big tournament.”

Digitain continues its expansion into new markets after a successful 2016 saw them recruit a number of new European clients, such as Austria’s Tipp1, Xlivebet.com of Bosnia and Spain-based Mediatech Solutions.

Sergii Romanenko, Head of Sportsbook at Pokerdom, said: “It’s great to be teaming up with Digitain who have a wealth of experience in offering sportsbook solutions across both retail and online environments.

“Our players will now be able to benefit from a huge range of pre-game and in-play sports betting markets thanks to their cutting-edge platform, and the imminent arrival of the World Cup means the timing of our launch couldn’t be any better.”

Nominated in the ‘Poker’ category at the forthcoming EGR Operator Awards, Pokerdom is ranked among the top ten largest poker rooms in the world, with over one million registered users.
