|August 25, 2005 (London, UK) – GameAccount, the #1 Skill Game and P2P network supplier (www.gameaccount.com) has been chosen by Betcorp (ASX.BCL) a leading group of companies publicly traded on the Australian stock exchange, to power their flagship online sportsbooks, BetWWTS.com (www.betwwts.com) and CyberSportsBook.com (www.cybersportsbook.com). |
Both brands are confident that the addition of popular skill games, such as Backgammon, Gin Rummy and Hi-Lo Solitaire, will attract a wider demographic to their sportsbooks, as well as appealing to their core of recreational and serious gamblers.
'Big cash tournaments and P2P (Peer-to-Peer) skill games like Backgammon resonate with sportsbook clients that visit our site as they are able to wager in a secure environment that offers the opportunity to back themselves to win,' said Andy Bell, Head of Casino & Games at Betcorp.
Meir Moses, Marketing Manager at GameAccount, agrees: “This deal proves that the sportsbook market recognizes the incremental revenue potential of P2P gaming. Differentiating your gaming products is a serious marketing priority in a highly competitive space. We’re pleased to be able to work with these leading sites and provide their customer base with a unique gaming experience that really delivers returns to the operator and user.”
The integrated sites offer the opportunity for CyberSportsBook.com and BetWWTS.com customers to win a share of the more than $2,000,000 worth of monthly winnings paid out within the GameAccount network. This includes a share in the world's biggest skill-based tournament, SuperCash, offering over $36,000 in prize money.
GameAccount powers more sportsbooks than any other skill gaming provider. Betcorp’s choice of GameAccount means that it will be the first Antiguan sportsbook ever to offer a fully-integrated skill games suite.
