LAS VEGAS, Feb. 02, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Sport and Gaming are a powerful combination for consumers, closely intertwined in their minds and with content in the sports betting and iGaming industries more important than ever. MeridianBet Group has been implementing a content-led strategy for two decades, long before it became mainstream.
In order to carve out its own niche and expand its prominent position in the sports betting market in the territories in which it operates, the MeridianBet Group has been building its brand identity through, among other services, Empty Bet.
Empty Bet is a unique offering and differs from a typical and more common place bet builder offer from a bookmaker. While a traditional bet builder allows customers to combine several selections from different events or markets within a game into one custom bet, the Empty Bet service takes it a step further by allowing customers to submit their own unique wager ideas. Whatever its nature might be, provided it fulfills legal, ethical and industry good practice standards, the over 3.2 million players acquired by MeridianBet worldwide (via both retail and online channels) can formulate the bet and wager on it either online (desktop and mobile) or by virtue of its global retail network of 735 shops throughout the Europe, the Americas, and Africa.
This allows for a greater and a very unique level of customisation and the ability for customers to tap into their own expertise and creativity to create custom wagers that are not available on traditional betting markets. This feature is not limited to sports betting and can be applied to any measurable event, as long as it is legal and ethical. This is the feature setting MeridianBet apart from other, both traditional and digital, betting platforms and provides a unique and engaging experience to sports bettors.
MeridianBet is committed to providing a unique and engaging experience for its customers, and to continuously innovate in order to stay ahead of the competition. This is a part of Group’s approach to constantly broadening the product and content portfolio, driven by a passion for invention and delivering both the betting services customers ask for, and those the customers didn’t know they wanted but make their entertainment experience meaningfully better.
With the iGaming industry is forecast to experience significant growth in the coming years, it is more important than ever for companies to offer a diverse range of content options to attract and retain customers. As announced on 12 January 2023, MeridianBet has entered into a conditional definitive acquisition agreement with Nasdaq traded Golden Matrix Group. On completion, with Golden Matrix’s extensive portfolio of games and white-labeled solution, and MeridianBet’s unique Empty Bet feature, the combined group will be in a strong position to capitalise on the forecasted growth in the iGaming industry.
