Sportsbet customers can now view both city and country Victorian thoroughbred live races anytime and even when on the go. This is because the online sportsbook operator recently and successfully integrated live streaming racing action as a free service feature of Sportbet's mobile betting application. The introduction of the free live stream service follows closely the deal struck with Racing Victoria last March, 2015.
Currently, and up to mid-April, the app can be accessed from the Sportsbet website. An important requisite though, is for punters to deposit and maintain funds in their Sportsbet account, in order to access the live stream of horse race events and the replays of previously streamed live events.
According to Sportsbet CEO Cormac Barry, an estimated 78 percent of Sportsbet customers have placed bets via their mobile app in February 2015. Partnering with the Victorian thoroughbred racing industry will keep up the drive for that trend. Moreover, he envision that it will significantly increase their share of the wagering pie and bring greater revenue growth for the thoroughbred system.
The Sportsbet CEO remarks that the collaboration enables horserace punters to view in real time Victoria live racing events anytime and anywhere using their preferred device. He commented that this will put live racing right in the hands of their mobile gambling customers. He added that around 1.8 million customers will be able to view live marquee events, such as the Cox Plate, the Caulfield Cup and the Melbourne Cup, whether at home, at a pub, while in a golf course or even on the road.
CEO Barry takes pride in mentioning that the developers at Sportsbet are innovators who can find ways to enhance the betting experience and value for their customers. The company considers it a major triumph for their punters and to Victoria's racing industry as well.
