Virtual Sports Supplier of the Year
2019 Gaming Intelligence Virtual Sports Supplier of the Year
The judges were almost entirely unanimous in picking Inspired for this category. The virtual sports betting vertical has grown massively in recent years and Inspired Entertainment has led the way.
Thanks to its virtual channel, Inspired generates 15-20 per cent incremental revenues for operators and starting from the UK it has expanded its footprint into 30 markets worldwide, including Italy, Greece, China, Latin America, Eastern and Central Europe.
Inspired is Italy’s largest virtual sports supplier and generates €1bn revenue per year and around 25 per cent of in-shop revenue for operators there. It is live across 6,000 venues in China and nearly 4,000 OPAP venues in Greece. Inspired hasn’t stopped there, it signed major agreements with leading operators such as Paddy Power, Betstars and the Pennsylvania State Lottery, where its ‘1st Down’ virtual American football product has given a strong foothold in the US market. Its commercial growth and product innovation make it a clear winner.
