A new feature for punters in Italy has been announced by software provider Inspired Entertainment.
Known as the Multi-Stream Matchday, it allows bettors to view streams of up to 8 soccer matches at a time all whilst placing bets and accumulators at enhanced odds.
Long term partner of Inspired Entertainment, Sisal, is set to be the first brand to launch it in Italy and if received well there, expect it to go live in more countries in the future.
As well as watching the games live, players can watch highlights of each game that are shown on dedicated channels as opposed to the single-game display which is currently the norm.
Their Matchday Ultra product enables players to bet on each of the 8 games if they wish with accumulators giving better than expected odds if players wish to do so.
Steve Rogers, the Chief Commercial Officer for Virtual Sports at Inspired Entertainment, told us: “Sisal has been one of our partners since 2014 when the Italian market opened up and in that time we have worked hard together to introduce a number of new and exciting concepts to the market. Our full suite of products soccer-related includes V-Play Penalties, V-Play Soccer, women’s soccer products and now the Multi-Stream Matchday and Matchday Ultra which we believe will be a great addition to the squad.”
As it is hosted and delivered from the Inspired Entertainment cloud platform, it is a cost-effective and flexible way to stream content to players on both online and mobile devices.
“Multi-Stream Matchday feedback has been enthusiastic, to say the least, and helps confirm the popularity of the virtual products that we have. We are looking forward to seeing new players join up who are attracted by this unique feature and look forward to seeing it grow across new jurisdictions in the not too distant future.”
