In the United States and Betr has announced the nationwide launch of a new mobile-friendly online sportsbetting app that allows aficionados to place free-play wagers on a wide range of micro-bets.
The enterprise used an official Thursday press release to declare that this fresh direct-to-consumer advance is the brainchild of SimpleBet founder Joey Levy and may be joined by a real-money counterpart ‘in select states over the coming months’. The operation went on to pronounce that social media personality Jake Paul (pictured) is also involved in the Betr-branded project, which it described as ‘the world’s first micro-betting focused app’ that is ’exclusively focused on enabling users to predict the outcomes of every moment of every sporting event’.
Unlike more traditional moneyline and spread wagers, micro-bets focus solely on the nitty-gritty aspects of a sporting contest such as whether a basketball team will hit a three-point shot in its next possession or what is to be the ruling on an ensuing pitch in a baseball game. These markets are not concerned with the ultimate outcome of a match and, as such, do not need to be explained via potentially confusing point spreads or exhibited using detailed spreadsheets.
Levy serves as the technology start-up’s Chief Executive Officer and he used the press release to express his excitement at the official launch of the Betr service before going on to proclaim that the advance allows users to wager coins that can subsequently be redeemed for actual prizes. The pioneer furthermore asserted that the new sportsbetting service is destined to provide ‘an instant gratification focus’ and deliver its offerings via ‘a simple and intuitive user experience that anyone can enjoy.’
