Betway pay out early on three MLB outright markets

Published

on

 

Betway has announced an early pay out on three outright markets in Major League Baseball.

Despite not even being halfway through the season, Betway are convinced that there is no stopping the New York Yankees (American League East Division), the Los Angeles Dodgers (National League West Division) and Houston Astros (American League West) in their respective divisons and are settling all win single bets immediately. This is not the first time that Betway, owned by NYSE listed Super Group, has paid out early. The betting brand have a reputation for settling bets prior to competitions finishing, including on the English Premier League, when most notably, they paid out on Liverpool to win the 2019/2020 Premier League title after just 13 games had been played, the earliest early pay out on English football in betting history.

Chad Yeomans, Global Head of PR and Communications for Betway, said: 

“We know there are risks attached to paying out early, but it looks as though it’s going to take a minor miracle for the Yankees, Dodgers and Astros to slip up and not win their divisons, so we’re happy to be settling these markets now.”

Super Group, the parent company of Betway, a leading online sports betting and gaming business, and Spin, the multi-brand online casino, announced that it has entered into definitive agreements to assume full control of its sportsbook software technology licensed by Apricot, Super Group’s long-standing software partner.

The transaction brings Super Group closer to its goal of fully owning and controlling its sportsbook technology across its worldwide markets, giving the company the capability to apply this technology stack to any properties it may buy or build in the future.

Super Group has agreed to acquire this technology for a total consideration of c.€140 million from Apricot’s licensor, plus additional amounts payable if certain earn-out conditions are achieved. The upfront consideration consists of c.€100 million, which will be paid in the form of cancellation of an outstanding loan. Super Group will pay an additional €40 million in two equal payments over the next two years, of which up to €20 million may be paid in ordinary shares of Super Group at its sole discretion. Additional payments of up to €210 million could be made through a contingent earn-out mechanism if Super Group’s sportsbook revenue more than doubles during the earn-out period which runs through December 31, 2035. The earn-out is calculated as a percentage of monthly sportsbook net gaming revenue, ranging from a low single-digit to high single-digit percentage.

Neal Menashe, Chief Executive Officer of Super Group, said: “I’m delighted that we have now concluded terms for the sportsbook – we have been working closely to agree to an equitable deal with a favorable structure for both parties. This is an exceptional opportunity for Super Group to take full control of our sportsbook technology, which would enable maximum flexibility for organic growth as well as M&A opportunities. We’ll continue to deliver the best sports betting and gaming experience to our customers around the world as the benefits of this deal are realized.”
