BetConnect launches new platform to allow bets with “all major bookmakers”

| By Daniel O'Boyle
Betting exchange operator BetConnect has launched a new platform that will allow players to bet with “all major bookmakers” in Great Britain through their BetConnect account.

The operator said that through this new platform, “users will be able to place a bet at the best bookmaker price without having to understand exchange betting”.

“We believe the industry needs to be opened-up and far more transparent for everyday punters and professional gamblers like,” BetConnect founder and chief executive Daniel Schreiber said. “Our new platform is built to deliver this, ensuring the proposition is accessible and far easier to use for the mass market whilst also enabling pros to get their bets matched.

“Whilst our look and feel has become more aligned to a modern sportsbook look, our underlying ethos and core proposition remains very different. What we have created is a unique proposition in the market that is pushing the boundaries and challenging the status quo, but at the same time can be easily understood.”

Since its launch in 2018, BetConnect has obtained 20,000 customers, and has seen more than £240m worth of bets matched.

“I have been blown away by BetConnect’s success since launch and am very proud of

what the team has built as we launch our latest platform,” Schreiber added.

“We have made huge strides and grown incredibly quickly in our first two years, but to scale and have a wide-ranging impact for all punters we needed to build on our core foundation by simplifying the platform so that it’s accessible to all. This marks an exciting new phase for BetConnect and we look forward to bringing transparency, choice and fairness to more and more punters in the years ahead.”

The operator also said it planned on offering a number of new markets later this year, including esports in the second half of the year.
