Bet365 Named as Industry Leader
Gambling Compliance Limited recently provided the results of its GamblingData subsidiary’s In-Play Tracker survey. This is one of the leading data and news providers for the online gaming industry.
This study compared the offerings of eight of the leading sports books during a 14 day period that lasted from the 26th of November to the 9th of December. The survey showed that two firms, Bet365. com and WilliamHill. com are closely tied for the leading spot in terms of the number of events and sports covered.
Bet365. com leads the industry in the number of sports covered at 20, and they also enabled bettors to wager on 358 events. SportingBet .com was second in the number of events that were offered with 358 events. Ladbrokes. com and UniBet. com were tied for the number of sports covered with 15 apiece.
Gambling Compliance also announced that their survey was the first of their quarterly reports, and that when the first two days of the study were discounted; 12Bet. com was second in the events covered with 279. SportingBet. com was then third with 276 events covered, and Bet365 .com was in the lead with 419.
First Place Lead
The study also shows a number of marked improvements from the last study which was conducted during April last year. The total number of events and the sports that were covered has risen steadily.
Industry insiders are curious to see whether Bet365. com will keep its first place lead, or whether other sites will be able to take advantage of the abundance of events that will be offered during this years sporting calendars.
