|Australian software developer BEToptions has announced that its WAGERplayer system will power a new sportsbetting website for South Africa’s Atlantic Sportsbet at Sportsbet.co.za.|
Melbourne-based BEToptions, which also has offices in Europe and South Africa, employs 20 people and specialises in the delivery of race sportsbetting systems to clients around the world. Its WAGERplayer system powers some of the busiest retail, Internet and call centre operations in the world and can deliver a consistent 10,000 bets per minute.
The company stated that the system has been through stringent technical and security audits in 2002 and 2003 by Ernst and Young in Australia with state government approval of the system for bookmaking operations.
'We are pleased to welcome Atlantic Sportsbet to our growing client base,' said Stuart Cashen, General Manager for BEToptions.
Lisa Haines, General Manager for Atlantic Sportsbet, stated that the Cape Town-based firm wanted a scalable, robust system that would deliver both fixed-odds and spread betting while also offering integrated online, telephone and retail betting.
