Optimove Releases Comprehensive NFL Betting Report: Illuminating 2023-2024 Bettor Intentions; Helping Guide Sports Betting Platforms to Boost Player Engagement and Loyalty While Ensuring a Safer Gambling Environment





Optimove, the leading CRM marketing solution for the iGaming sector, has released its Optimove 2023-2024 Report focused on NFL wagering intentions, brand loyalty and communications preferences.

Surveying 287 United States citizens who wagered on NFL football in August of 2023, the comprehensive report deeply analyzes respondents’ wagering intentions, brand loyalty and communication preferences. By providing insights into the behaviors and preferences of NFL bettors, it acts as a guide to sports gambling platforms to optimize their offerings, nurture player loyalty and promote responsible gambling practices while maintaining a safer gambling environment.

Of particular interest is that NFL bettors show deep engagement in betting as 61% of respondents said they make ‘live bets’ during the game. While NFL bettors have deep engagement while the game is on with 54% using two or more sites per week for betting and 18% use three or more.

This deep engagement in betting may result in the divergence in marketing fatigue between bettors and general online shoppers. Thirty-seven percent (37%) of bettors say they want fewer marketing messages compared to 66% of online shoppers.


Integrating a customer data platform (CDP) with a multichannel marketing hub (MMH) can drive brand loyalty:

The report provides key recommendations to sports gambling sites to enhance customer engagement and loyalty further while promoting responsible gambling practices. The core driver includes integrating a customer data platform (CDP) with a multichannel marketing hub (MMH) to implement highly personalized promotions and optimal delivery timing.

Pini Yakuel, the founder and Chief Executive Officer for Optimove noted that by aligning marketing strategies with these findings, sports gambling sites can effectively attract, engage and retain bettors while promoting responsible gambling behaviors. He added: “This report will help sports betting operators have top-line data on NFL season bettors’ intentions. Starting with data from bettors is the holy grail to assuring that marketing messaging is pertinent and timely. Operators who do not have a customer data platform seamlessly integrated into a multichannel marketing hub will struggle to keep bettors loyal. The survey results around live betting are a prime example of the importance of real-time communications and app updates that dynamically respond to game changes.”

Recommended actions for sports gambling operators:

First and foremost, sites should Integrate a customer data platform (CDP) with a multichannel marketing hub (MMH) for comprehensive insights. With that foundation, sports gambling operators can use artificial intelligence (AI) to automate personalized game recommendations based on historical data and real-time interactions. Plus, they can implement real-time event triggers for timely personalized messages during games. To unify the player experience, sports sites can deliver consistent cross-channel messages for a unified customer experience. These actions can help deepen brand loyalty before, during, and after the game.


Select Data from the report:

Marketing Fatigue: NFL bettors suffer less marketing fatigue – only 37% want fewer messages, in contrast with 66% of online shoppers.

Sixty-one percent (61%) of respondents said they make ‘live bets’ during the game: It underscores that betting platforms have multiple chances to engage betting fans after kick-off and before the final whistle.


DraftKings Set to Launch Mobile Sports Betting in North Carolina on March 11





Today, DraftKings Incorporated (DraftKings) (Nasdaq: DKNG) announced plans to launch its top-rated online sportsbook in North Carolina on March 11, 2024. This announcement is the culmination of DraftKings’ continued work with stakeholders and regulators across North Carolina to offer fans a responsible form of sports betting. Earlier this year, DraftKings and NASCAR agreed to terms on a written designation agreement, paving the way for the digital sports entertainment and gaming company to operate in the state. Once live in North Carolina, the DraftKings Sportsbook will be available in 27 United States states, in addition to Ontario, Canada.

North Carolina is known for its strong sports culture, housing the majority of the NASCAR industry, professional teams in the NFL, NBA and NHL as well as several universities competing at the Division-I level. Starting from March 11, DraftKings will provide eligible fans in the state several new and responsible ways to get in on the action. DraftKings’ online sportsbook provides a wide variety of betting markets and key offerings such as same-game parlays, in-game betting, special odds boosts and more on a safe, regulated platform with various customer protections in place such as deposit and time limits, access to responsible gaming resource materials, cool off and self-exclusion features along with DraftKings’ all new My Stat Sheet, an innovative responsible gaming feature that shows customers exactly how much time they’ve spent on DraftKings and the total amount of deposits they’ve placed on the platform.

“With the NCAA Tournament right around the corner and the NASCAR season in full throttle, we are thrilled to be launching our top-rated sportsbook app in North Carolina,” the President for DraftKings North America, Matt Kalish, said. “‘The Tar Heel State’ is home to a passionate fanbase and some of the most iconic college basketball programs of all time, making this an exciting time to introduce legalized online sports betting. We’re proud to be working alongside NASCAR as our market access partner and look forward to enhancing the fan experience across North Carolina with a fun, safe and seamless sports betting product.”

To celebrate the launch of legalized mobile sports betting going live in North Carolina, DraftKings, in collaboration with NASCAR, is teaming up with Carolina Panthers legend Greg Olsen for a ceremonial first bet on March 11, 2024. The event will take place at the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte and feature remarks from Olsen as well as DraftKings Chief Commercial Officer Jeremy Elbaum and North Carolina State Representative Zack Hawkins.


In addition to hosting the ceremonial first bet in North Carolina on March 11, DraftKings is also recognizing Problem Gambling Awareness Month (PGAM) in March, led by the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG) to increase public awareness of problem gaming and the availability of prevention, treatment and recovery services. DraftKings works closely with the NCPG to highlight the company’s responsible gaming initiatives and resources such as cool offs, limitations, key partnerships and mental health services.

Both active members of the American Gaming Association (AGA), DraftKings and NASCAR are committed to promoting the AGA’s Have A Game Plan: Bet Responsibly public service campaign, which educates customers on responsible gaming best practices such as establishing and adhering to a budget and only engaging with legal, regulated operators.

Legacy Fantasy Sports Launches On-Demand Daily Fantasy Sports and Wins Best Product Experience Award at the 2024 Fantasy Sports & Gaming Association Winter Conference





Revolutionary fantasy sports platform comes to market in time to extend the football season for thousands following the Super Bowl

The Legacy Fantasy Sports team has re-branded the company with the launch of its all-new, revolutionary fantasy sports app titled On Demand Daily Fantasy Sports (ODDFS) and took home the award for Best Product Experience: Start-Up at the Fantasy Sports & Gaming Association (FSGA) Winter Conference in Las Vegas.

ODDFS is available in the App Store and on Google Play. The change is not only in name but is also more representative of the innovative and first of its kind platform that allows players to be able to create and play in a fantasy sports contest, anytime, 24/7/365 days per year at the snap of your fingers.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to win the Best Product Experience award at the FSGA Winter Conference,” the co-founder of ODDSF, John Latella, said. “The ODDFS app is literally for everyone and was designed specifically with kids and families in mind. This is why it was important to keep it a non-gambling platform that appeals to casual and die-hard fantasy enthusiasts alike who still want to engage in fantasy sports when there are no ‘live’ sporting events available or their favorite sports season has come to an end.”


As a social gaming fantasy sports app, ODDFS erases the limitations of traditional fantasy sports by allowing friends, co-workers, fans and family members of all ages to actively play in public contests or create their own daily fantasy sports (DFS) contests, no matter the sport, during times when no other platform can be active because there are no ‘live’ sporting events. With ODDFS, they can join or create a DFS contest 24/7/365, utilizing the players of today alongside the grinders, all stars and hall of famers that have stepped on the field over the last 20 years.

ODDFS proprietary technology allows fans to build a roster with players from today and legends of the past, extending each sport’s fantasy season from a few months to every day of the year. Create your roster with over 5,000 NFL players that have taken the field from 2000 to the present and over 30,000 players representing over 290 colleges and universities that have taken the field from 2013 to the present. Check out how we achieve this, as well as our revolutionary in-app functionality.

ODDFS unique in-app functionality includes social networking, weekly, monthly, yearly and all-time leaderboards for each sport, the DFS IQ, which provides the latest fantasy sports news in partnership with Fantasy Pros, customizable public and private leagues and a first-of-its-kind rewards program where users earn points based on the amount of contests that they play in that can be redeemed for in-app rewards.

“Winning this FSGA award is a thrilling achievement because we created ODDFS as a response to the lack of innovation and repetitive nature of the fantasy sports market,” the Chief Operating Officer for ODDFS, Ray Bonkowski, said. “The industry has been focused on sports betting and gambling, which we believe has left a large gap in the market. Our product was built to provide an option for new and existing fantasy sports fans during a period when ESPN, Yahoo, DraftKings, FanDuel and other operators cannot provide an NFL or college football DFS contest because there are no live games on the schedule.”

With over 350 million people playing fantasy sports worldwide, ODDFS believes that many of these are non-sports betting/non-gambling motivated and interested in playing whenever they want. Furthermore, in the United States alone there are 25 million people between the ages of 13 and 17 that currently cannot play DFS on any of the other platforms. We look forward to changing that with ODDFS.

GeoComply: Super Bowl LVIII Weekend Volumes Increase 22% Year-Over-Year as United States Legal Online Betting Grows



geocomply:-super-bowl-lviii-weekend-volumes-increase-22%-year-over-year as-united-states-legal-online-betting-grows


GeoComply, a global leader in advanced anti-fraud and geolocation compliance technologies, has announced a 22.3 percent increase in geolocation checks throughout Super Bowl weekend, surpassing last year’s figures. This sustained growth underscores an important shift in the United States towards a state-regulated, taxed and secure betting environment, enabling more Americans to place legal bets on the year’s most anticipated football game. GeoComply analyzed its data across 28 US states*, Washington DC and Puerto Rico with legal, online sports betting during Super Bowl LVIII weekend.

“The continued transition to the legal market set the stage for a historic first Super Bowl in Las Vegas and the record-breaking results we saw did not disappoint. We are proud to help foster the growth of a regulated industry that puts accountability, security and player protection at the forefront,” the founder and Chief Executive Officer for GeoComply, Anna Sainsbury, said. “Compliance drives our mission and with that commitment we strive to help our customers reliably and responsibly expand the player funnel and boost their businesses. Every year the legal market grows is good news for consumers and states and bad news for illegal offshore sportsbooks that become marginalized.”

Additional Key Insights from Super Bowl LVIII Include:

  • Throughout Super Bowl weekend, GeoComply saw a total of 8.5 million active accounts across states where online sports betting is legal. This represents a 15 percent increase over last year’s Super Bowl
  • During the two weeks leading up to the Super Bowl, GeoComply saw more than 1.77 million new users sign up for legal online betting accounts
  • Since the start of the 2023/2024 NFL season through the Super Bowl, GeoComply customers have added more than 13.7 million new accounts, a 28 percent increase from last season
  • Minutes before kick-off, GeoComply saw a massive spike in traffic totaling 14.75 thousand transactions per second (TPS) immediately. This was the highest TPS ever recorded on GeoComply’s systems, nearly doubling the last Super Bowl’s peak
  • Tale of two Kansas cities: Chiefs fans on both sides of the Kansas City border want to support their team. GeoComply’s real-time pin drop map from Super Bowl Sunday shows legal activity in Kansas, while just across the street in Missouri they are blocked from betting

(GeoComply will be releasing additional Super Bowl data insights later this week.)


GeoComply’s technology is critical for the online sports betting industry. Its platform uses more than 800 data points to accurately confirm that players are located in a state where sports betting is legal before placing a bet. Super Bowl LVIII represents many new growth milestones for the legal online sports betting industry but it also represents a significant technical achievement that ensures that players have a fantastic experience and regulators have the proper assurances that all bets placed fall within the appropriate state borders.

“GeoComply’s technology brings the perfect blend of geolocation precision mixed with a rock-solid player experience,” Sainsbury said. “These two aspects of our platform are critical to the industry’s success as a whole and we designed the solution to meet these massive spikes in demand without compromising on either of them. Innovation is at the core of our brand and we will continue to improve on our technology with the expectation that by the next Super Bowl, more states and more players will join the masses.”

*GeoComply’s Super Bowl data is based on GeoComply’s aggregated geolocation transactions for its United States sportsbook customers in regulated states including Massachusetts, Kentucky, Maine, Vermont and Puerto Rico, all new regulated markets since last year’s Super Bowl. The data does not include Florida. Unless otherwise indicated, data for this release was collected starting at 12am ET on February 10 and continuing through the completion of the Super Bowl on February 11.

GeoComply has a unique view of the United States online sports betting market as the trusted geolocation supplier for many of the regulated online sports betting operators in the United States. GeoComply’s data does not purport to be definitive or represent the entire United States market but is intended to provide general insights into relevant market dynamics.
