80% Bets Made Mobile: SOFTSWISS Sportsbook Q3’23 Overview

Published

Reading Time: 2 minutes

In Q3’23, the SOFTSWISS Sportsbook saw a remarkable 37% higher average bet on League of Legends compared to football – the sports betting platform team shares valuable insights.

In terms of statistics, traditional top 5 sports by the number of bets did not bring any surprises:

  1. Football 
  2. Tennis 
  3. Basketball 
  4. Table tennis 
  5. Baseball 

 

Counter-Strike continues to hold its ground in the top 10 most popular disciplines by bets, keeping its leadership among cybersports. Another cyber leader, League of Legends, outshines football with a 37% higher average bet. In addition, Dota 2 has become the most profitable among all betting categories. These facts underline the hidden potential of focusing on esports, particularly in light of seasonality. Notably, in Q3, there were more tournaments across various esports than in Q2, positioning cybersports as a potential lifesaver during the low season of traditional summer sports.

Compared to Q3 2022, this year’s Q3 has witnessed a notable uprise in the number of bets, turnover and GGR towards mobile devices. Precisely, 80% of bets were placed via mobile, marking a substantial increase from 65% recorded in the previous year. The growing trend of players opting for mobile phones for betting underscores a strategic shift driven by the inherent convenience these devices offer, especially in live betting scenarios.

Alexander Kamenetskyi, Head of SOFTSWISS Sportsbook, comments: “In contrast to the third quarter of the previous year, we note a gradual increase in the share of combo bets. It is a favourable sign for operators, given that the likelihood of winning a combo bet is lower than that of a single one.

Overall, I am delighted to mark our sustained growth from quarter to quarter. When we compare our performance with the corresponding period last year, we see an extraordinary increase of 438% in the number of bets and that our GGR has surged by an astounding 523%. These remarkable results are a testament to the dedication, professionalism, and unwavering commitment to innovation demonstrated by my colleagues at the SOFTSWISS Sportsbook and other product teams. I extend my heartfelt gratitude to them for their outstanding contributions.”

In the previous month, the SOFTSWISS Sportsbook made a huge step towards new regulated markets, obtaining vital GLI-33 certification. The team representatives will be happy to meet you at Stand 2129 during SiGMA Europe in Malta on 14-16 November.

Through a new data partnership with Betinvest, Kambi subsidiary Abios gets access to an additional 4,650 matches of esoccer from the tournaments CyberLive!Arena (CLA) and Esport Pro Club (EPC). This allows Abios to power its partners with fast and engaging betting experiences, perfect for sportsbooks looking to capitalise on the combination of digital esports and analogue sports.

Last year, Abios released its esoccer offering featuring an odds feed, widgets and accompanying streams, creating an all-in-one betting experience. It proved to be a popular product for sportsbooks looking to increase live content after big events or during season downtime.

To increase coverage, create a more consistent offering and enable larger customer differentiation, Abios has partnered with sportsbook solutions provider Betinvest. Through the deal, Abios gets access to over 4,650 monthly events across CyberLive!Arena (CLA) and Esport Pro Club (EPC) tournaments.

This allows Abios to price and provide data and streams for an increased number of events, making sure there is live content available in the sportsbook, even during breaks in the seasonal football season.

The events are played in EA Sports’ FC game, formerly known as FIFA, which allows two players to control teams of players on a high-tech, simulated football field. In its simplicity and likeness to football, the game and its esports segment cater to fans of both football and esports, making it a bridge connecting both worlds.

Dariia Petrus, Business Development Team Lead at Betinvest, says: “Looking forward, our partnership is poised for significant growth and innovation. We’ve established a solid base for collaboration, opening up a range of exciting opportunities for us to explore together. The synergy of our shared expertise and efforts sets this venture apart, making it a noteworthy endeavor. This collaboration goes beyond achieving shared goals; it’s about the enriching experiences and mutual growth we’ll achieve along the way. We’re genuinely excited about what lies ahead and eagerly anticipate the start of our joint efforts.”

Oskar Bonnevier Fröberg, Managing Director and Founder of Abios, comments: Abios has recently taken significant strides to facilitate our esoccer product reaching new heights. With proprietary modelling, access to best-in-class data sources and a team of esports experts, we’ve been able to build a reliable odds feed coupled with exciting bet offers.

To help us provide 24/7 content to partners across the globe, we’re thrilled to have Betinvest onboard. With the content they provide, we can ensure even higher flexibility and availability for our partners, ultimately leading to more differentiated and optimised sports betting offerings.”
