Tain offers one-minute wagers through new Fast Bet service




Tain, the gaming software and solutions provider, has successfully launched its new Fast Bet sports betting service.

Fast Bet gives punters the opportunity to place wagers on whether incidents will take place within a defined period during a sports event.

Markets for football matches include whether there will be a goal, corner, free-kick, goal-kick, red card or throw-in during the period, with Fast Bet also available for other major sports. Punters simply click on an event and select the timeframe, which could be as little as a single minute.

Fast Bet – which Malta-based Tain is to showcase at next month’s ICE 2017 event in London – enhances Tain’s already comprehensive sportsbook service.

Tain Managing Director Mathias Larsson said Fast Bet offers operators the opportunity to differentiate themselves from the rest of the sector.

“Sportsbooks that can offer something different will be the ones that prosper in a competitive marketplace,” said Larsson. “Fast Bet is an exciting new service that can help operators to stand out from the rest.

“Fast Bet is ideal for those punters who become bored through having to wait until half-time or full-time to see their bet settled.


“Sports fans can put their knowledge and expertise to the test over a limited period of time. If they think a spell of attack is certain to lead to a goal, or if they think a couple of bad tackles might culminate in a red card, the Fast Bet service is perfect for them.”


Fast Bet is the latest enrichment to Tain’s service since it was acquired by XIN Gaming last June.


Last month it was announced that Tain would increase the number of live events it covers each month to 23,000. In increasing the number of sports covered to 50, Tain now offers markets on the likes of curling, biathlon and water polo, as well as traditional major verticals such as football, tennis and US sports.


Larsson added: “Tain now offers the extras that complement its fully-managed sportsbook. Operators are excited by our enhanced service, and we look forward to displaying our offering to the rest of the sector at ICE 2017.”


The Fast Bet service will be demonstrated at Tain’s stand (S1-342) at ICE 2017.

Ezugi, the leading live dealer solution provider, will go live with its first ever over the top solution, OTT, over the Roulette table, at Portomaso Casino, Malta.

The Ezugi OTT solution provides the bridge between the online and offline casino worlds, by creating a unique gaming experience. Once connected to the Ezugi network after installing the OTT product on their Roulette tables, land-based casinos can automatically drive new online traffic to their offline tables creating new revenue channels.

OTT Roulette allows players to bet on the actual roulette wheel in the casino and to play alongside online customers accessing the same game. Ezugi will present its solution at this ICE gaming show next week.

Land-based players can place bets in the traditional manner, while the live video stream can be accessed by an unlimited number of players via the internet on a desktop computer or connected mobile device.

Anton Bargel, CCO of Ezugi said: “Ezugi OTT product is a natural expansion of Ezugi Network strategy where we aim to become the biggest pool of table games by connecting land- based casinos around the world under one shared game lobby. Joining our regulated network by adding simple equipment on top of tables instantly generates money to the land-based roulette hosts. Land-based casinos are a central part of the Ezugi strategy, and OTT is an important step to strengthen our offering and is just before our next road-map release of OTT baccarat expected during Q2 2017”.

Anthony Farrugia & Patrick Demanuele of Portomaso Gaming added: “We are delighted to be the first land-based casino to offer the ground-breaking Ezugi OTT Roulette directly from our casino floor. Portomaso is already a solid and well-known reality within the online casino industry, and we see in Ezugi’s innovative live dealer solution provider, a great match and a partner with which we can grow. Joining forces we can now offer our players an innovative and different service that is unique in many ways”.
