Hard Metrics, the online sportsbook and casino platform and services joint venture between Metric Gaming and the Bethard Group, has signed its first operator partner, Toro Bet.
The operator is now to be powered by innovative platform from Metric Gaming and Bethard Group joint venture. The deal allows Toro Bet to enter the Mexican sports betting market powered by the state-of-the art Hard Metrics platform.
The technology includes Metric Gaming’s trading, operations, risk management and suite of innovative and proprietary betting products, as well as Bethard’s business intelligence, player account management system and casino platform.
Toro Bet is the first operator within America to take advantage of the Hard Metrics turnkey solution, which provides an enviable level of product autonomy from a B2B supplier.
Uniquely, the Hard Metrics platform allows operators to configure distinct offerings to meet the competitive and regulatory needs of divergent markets. In the case of Toro Bet, it will allow them to establish their brand in Mexico and then move into other Latin American territories with offerings unique to that particular market.
Martin de Knijff, Metric Gaming CEO and founder said: “We are thrilled to have signed our first operator partner through Hard Metrics and look forward to helping Toro Bet establish itself as a major player in the Mexican online sports betting market.
