Intralot’s Polish bookmaker, Totolotek, will become the first company in Poland to provide betting on virtual sports events following a partnership with Betradar.
Betradar will power Poland’s first virtual sports betting offer via Totolotek following amended Gambling Law’s in the region around virtual betting as of April 2017.
Totolotek claims Łódź Reds, Warsaw Military and Gdynia Herrings will be just some of the teams debuting in their virtual Premier League.
Intralot’s Totolotek is the first regulated bookmaker in Poland to make betting on virtual sports events available to customers, with simulations of football matches, dog racing and horse racing.
“Betting on virtual sports events is increasingly popular in other countries, and has been available for many years. In Poland, betting on such events was made possible by the provisions of the amended Gambling Law, effective since April” says Adam Lamentowicz, CEO at Totolotek. “We believe that this kind of gaming will be of great interest to our customers. It is fast and much more accessible than betting on real games. We have put a lot of work into making the simulations as realistic and elaborate as possible, and placed a lot of data inside so as to enable players to analyze possible results” he adds.
Totolotek’s offering is powered by Betradar and speaking about the partnership, Neale Deeley, MD Virtual Gaming at Betradar said: “We are really excited to launch with Totolotek. Punters around the world place millions of bets on Betradar virtual sports every week and now punters in Poland can enjoy the same thrilling experience.”
In addition to virtual football clubs, horse races and dog races, May will see Totolotek provide simulations of games played by national teams and the company aims to provide virtual basketball and tennis in the future too.
Details of ongoing virtual games and bets offered by Totolotek are displayed on screens at sales outlets, and will be on Totoloteks’s website soon.
