Renowned Swedish mobile gaming provider Mobenga provided its solutions to help Australian sports betting operator Sporstbet launch a mobile product. One of the best online sportsbooks in Australia will now be able to accept wagers via iPhone, iPad and Android based devices.
Australian Senator Xenophon, a long time opponent of all forms of entertainment including sports betting, reportedly became enraged upon hearing the news of the new mobile sports betting app. Details are still sketchy, but reputable sources report that for the only time in his career, Xenophon was completely speechless.
Paddy Power commands a controlling interest in the Australian group and decided it was high time to introduce mobile betting in the land Down Under. Paddy Power’s own mobile betting application has been a huge success with European bettors.
Mobile manager at Sportsbet, Raymond Smit, told Australia gambling news: “With smartphone penetration in the Australian market at 37 percent and growing, developing a mobile platform to suit this demand became our top priority.”
He also added: “We were very impressed with the work Mobenga has provided to European betting companies and partnering with such a leading mobile development house was the obvious choice.” Sportsbet operates in full compliance with Australian gambling laws and the launch of the mobile app will help the operator achieve new heights in regards to market share.
The Swedish specialist in mobile gaming says that the new iPhone and Android apps are one of the most advances solutions in Australia and guarantee only the best sports betting offerings.
CEO of Sportsbet, Cormack Barry, had the following to say: “We’ve already seen fantastic growth since going live with this new product, with more than a quarter of our customers now enjoying our mobile betting platform. We will continue to invest heavily in the mobile betting space as we strive to provide our customers with an unrivalled mobile betting experience.”
Mobenga CEO, Christian Rajter, also commented the partnership: “The teams of both Sportsbet and Mobenga have been working very hard to deliver the most advanced and comprehensive client in the world for the Spring Carnival and have done a fantastic job! This is only the beginning of an extremely exiting journey and we look forward to together pushing the limits of the mobile media.“
