UK online bookmaker Star Sports has enhanced its sportsbook offering with the addition of LVision’s Betting & Animation Widget to accelerate customer turnover and player engagement levels.
Based on LVision’s proprietary AI algorithms and historical data, the product serves as a unique live match tracker by converting broadcasts into meaningful data and high-quality sports visualisations.
Initially launched with tennis, with other sports to come later this year, the AI-driven widget provides Star Sports customers with exciting second screen entertainment with real-time in-play odds, insights, and statistics and coverage across all matches including all professional players and tournaments. One customer registered session time and engagement level increase of 65%, while others have reported similar numbers.
Several LVision customers have seen session times and engagement levels increase by up to 65% from using the product.
The widget is also integrated with players’ bet slips offering sportsbooks instant bet stimulation and providing Star Sports’ valued customers with advanced betting tips associated with real-time markets and offers. It covers everything from players’ location and position to shots, serves, balls, patterns, win ratio and much more.
As part of the agreement, Star Sports will also benefit from LVision’s BetBooster insights which are integrated into the widget. BetBooster is a fully automated, data-driven service based on historical data, live incidents, and AI analysis, covering both pre-match and in-play across soccer, tennis and basketball and stands at an average of 20 million insights per year.
Launched as Star Racing in 1999 and rebranded in 2009 to reflect its wider portfolio of services, Star Sports has grown to become the UK’s leading luxury bookmaker with a comprehensive online offering.
LVision has struck deals with several high-profile brands since the beginning of 2021 including Rivalo, STS, EuropeBet and more.
Ido Lazar, Founder and CEO of LVision, said: “I’m really excited to make our debut in the UK with Star Sports that has built a reputation as one of the leading sportsbook brands in the market.
“I’m thrilled they have chosen to integrate our leading data-driven tennis product and I’m sure their valued customers will benefit from a unique betting experience that takes sport to new levels.”
Luke Tarr, Head of PR, Star Sports, said: “The tennis season got off to a great start with a very exciting Australian Open but, with the addition of LVision’s new Betting & Animation Widget, our customers now have access to a unique and stimulating tennis experience making it the ideal complementary product to betting on live events across 2021.”
