|Ukbetting has added a new range of in-game bets on Cricket in time for the World Cup, which is currently being hosted by South Africa, Kenya and Zimbabwe.|
The betting system is courtesy of Interactive Systems Worldwide Inc. (ISWI), and it enables punters to bet on a wide range of propositions for in-game betting. Customers at ukbetting’s sites, ukbetting.com and totalbet.com can now bet on, for example, whether runs will be scored off a single ball, whether a wicket will fall in a particular over and how the next batsman will be dismissed.
Ukbetting plc's CEO, Eric Semel, said that Cricket is the perfect sport for in-run betting, and the Cricket World Cup is a perfect opportunity to debut the technology: “This World Cup is in a similar time zone as the UK, allowing our customers to access the Internet service at the same time they are likely to be in front of a computer screen. Once logged on they can bet straight through the game if they wish, with any winnings instantly credited back to their accounts.'
World Cup matches began on February 8th, 2003 and will continue until the final contest scheduled for March 23, 2003.
