90Live is first dedicated soccer betting game on Facebook
BERLIN – 7 June 2012 – Crowdpark, the European start-up bringing legal betting to the world of social gaming, today launched a new soccer game, “90Live”. The first dedicated soccer betting game on Facebook, 90Live kicks off just in time for UEFA Euro 2012 on June 8th, so that players can start placing their bets from the very beginning of the tournament. Europe’s premier soccer tournament, Euro 2012 is the 14th European Championship showcasing 16 national soccer teams, and is held from 8 June – 1 July 2012.
90Live incorporates the best of soccer’s social elements, offering live bets, weekly predictions and trivia questions. It takes the thrill of soccer betting to a social environment, letting fans compete for status with virtual currency while supporting their favorite teams and joining fellow fans to get their country at the top of the rankings.
To celebrate Euro 2012 in particular, Crowdpark has designed a special ‘Euro mode’ for 90Live. Players can answer Euro 2012 trivia questions, bet on games, receive special offers and earn points. Links between the virtual game and real-world soccer fever culminate in chances to win prizes ranging from a PlayStation 3 with a FIFA 12 game to Samsung smartphones, jerseys, and official Euro 2012 soccer balls.
“Live in-play betting is the fastest-growing type of sports betting and we’re excited to be pioneering real-time soccer betting on Facebook,” said Crowdpark co-founder Martin Frindt. “With our newest game, 90Live, we continue to position ourselves in the social betting field with a vast market potential.”
In 2011, gross revenues of the online gambling industry were measured at $31.4B. Betting accounts for 43% of that figure, or $13.5B. (Source H2 Gambling Capital). Soccer is the most popular sport for betting. Moreover, the soccer fan base is renown for its fervor.
Soccer fans worldwide are famously dedicated followers who are increasingly expressing their passion via social media. 90Live engages a new generation of soccer bettors on Facebook in a way that matches their lifestyle.
