The SBC Webinars series continues on Tuesday 25 May when FSB hosts Is Your Platform Prepared for the Ultimate 18 Months of Sports Betting?

The pandemic-enforced rescheduling of the international sporting calendar has created a programme of major events that are set to be one of the busiest periods sportsbook operators have ever experienced.

Sports fans can look forward to a run of action that includes the Euros, the Olympics and the World Cup, alongside the return to a full set of golf Majors and Grand Slam tennis tournaments, and the usual club soccer, basketball and NFL schedules. 

With both regular and occasional punters set to be presented with a wealth of big games to bet on, operators need to ensure they have a technical set up capable of handling the expected volumes of traffic and delivering a great customer experience. 

In this webinar, sportsbook platform specialist FSB will be joined by a panel of experts to examine whether now is the time for operators to migrate away from legacy platforms in order to truly reap the commercial benefits of this vital period.

They will also debate the risks of sticking with a legacy platform, the benefits and challenges of platform migration, and how the latest platforms can help operators to drive growth.

The expert panel ready to share their insights on sports betting platform technology includes:

  • Dave McDowell – CEO, FSB
  • Joe Saumarez Smith – chairman, Eyas Gaming 
  • Marc Thomas – partner, Propus Partners 
  • Andrew McCarron – managing director, SBC (moderator)

McDowell said: “Bookmakers can look forward to sustained high levels of player activity in the coming months thanks to an unprecedented succession of major events.

“They now need to assess whether they have the right platform in place to really benefit from that and avoid the kind of user experience issues that could result in customers switching to the competition.

“During the webinar, our guests will evaluate the potential risks and rewards of sticking with a legacy platform or switching to a next generation product, while I’ll share some of the insights gained from a recent project that saw FSB successfully complete a full platform and regulatory migration in just two months.”
