SportOdds Mobile Bets Launched in Aus
By dave
An internet sports betting firm, SportOdds, is offering a mobile phone betting system in Australia, and says it is in talks with the main mobile phone companies. The system also transmits details of the odds as they change.

`Phone companies see it as one of the new and exciting services that will be key drivers in selling more new handsets,’ SportOdds' marketing manager, Mick Robbins, said.

Until the soft launch of the M-bet mobile phone service two months ago, about 90 per cent of SportOdds bets were placed via the internet, but now some clients have switched almost entirely to phones, Mr Robbins said.

While casino-style gambling is banned in Australia, online betting on sports events is legal, under licence. The same legislation will cover mobile phones.
