June 18, 2017
Online bookmaker Betsafe has added horse racing markets to it’s sportsbook product. It’s the first brand within the Betsson Group to provide coverage of the ‘Sport of Kings’ and the offering is on a par with many top UK operators. Betsson purchased Racebets in 2016 and with the help of it’s experienced trading team, can now take bets on over 250,000 racing events each year.
There are daily race markets for National Hunt, Flat and All-Weather UK and Irish racing. Punters can also back their fancies from a host of worldwide venues including France, Hong Kong, Germany and the USA. On top of this is an extensive Ante-Post offering and a live streaming service provided by Racebets.
More Betsson brands are expected to follow suit in the coming months, with Ulrik Bengtsson, CEO and President saying;
“Horse racing is an essential part of a competitive sportsbook offering if you want to be a strong competitor in markets like the UK and Ireland. By launching horse racing on Betsafe we are levelling up our sportsbook significantly. The next step is to launch horse racing on our other brands.”
