– Bet Section Delivers Suite of New Personalized Betting Features, Further Deepening theScore’s Industry-Leading Media and Gaming Integrations
TORONTO, November 12, 2020 – Score Media and Gaming Inc. (TSX: SCR) (“theScore” or the “Company”) today debuted Bet Section, its most integrated and personalized suite of betting features ever. A new, dedicated home within theScore’s media app, Bet Section takes the company’s innovative cross-platform media and betting experience with theScore Bet to the next level.
Users will receive a suite of highly personalized betting features, such as prioritized and tailored markets, live bet tracking and exclusive promotions. Bet Section’s deep integrations make it even simpler for fans to create bet slips, follow their action and even receive cash out offers for theScore Bet, all within theScore.
“We launched theScore Bet on the premise that betting should be a natural extension of how fans consume sports, not an isolated transactional experience,” said John Levy, Founder and CEO, theScore. “With the launch of Bet Section we’re further fulfilling that mission by creating an unparalleled cross-platform experience that personalizes and streamlines the betting process for users as they interact with our media app. It’s natural, seamless and reinforces our cutting-edge approach in fusing media with gaming.”
Key features of Bet Section include:
- Personalized Markets: Bet Section surfaces the most relevant markets available on theScore Bet based on sports fans’ favorite teams and leagues on theScore, helping them discover the bets they’re most likely to care about.
- Bet Tracking: When a bet is placed on theScore Bet, it will automatically be tracked live within Bet Section on theScore. This means fans can follow their wagers live in theScore’s sports app – including seeing real-time cash out offers – allowing them to always know where their action stands while still focusing on the game.
- Exclusive Promotions: Sports fans will be served exclusive and personalized promotions for theScore Bet.
- Community Polling: See how picks are polling with other users of theScore, cast your vote and use the results to start building a bet slip.
