Gambling software supply group OpenBet has announced that they have agreed to supply the British Columbia Lottery Corporation's PlayNow.com gambling website with sports betting pools.
The new sports pools product is set to give punters an opportunity to bet on sports without having to know about how the odds system works. The product will allow players to buy in for $5, and using the platform can bet on the outcome of a game, wherein a jackpot can be won by a player who ends up selecting the correct number of outcomes.
Commenting on the deal OpenBEt CEO Jeremy Thompson-Hill said, "OpenBet is focused on working with our customers to develop technology that offers a superior player experience with new entertaining ways to play. Sports Pools is a great new product for BCLC and one we have been pleased to work with them in developing."
PlayNow is an online betting site that is sanctioned by the BC state lottery, and offers casino, lottery, keno, and sportsbetting products to customers located within its provincial borders. The site is Canada's oldest run state-run betting site, as it launched back in 2010.
