Our proprietary technology, unique products and innovative marketing combined with a fantastic welcome offer are aimed to offer a superb experience to customers worldwide.
There are plenty of other reasons why Betzest is already highly anticipated by customers and affiliates in European markets. Betzest platform will be stylish and user-friendly accessible on all devices, thousands of betting markets and variety of odds on any sports updated lifetime. Casino players will be spoilt for choice with a huge variety of quality games, unique promotions and casino tournaments. Last but not least, at Betzest, we want our staff and partners to feel the same way as our customers — excited, empowered and eager to come back for more.
Which markets do you focus on and do you see any potential in the emerging markets ?
Betzest will be launching under MGA license with a view to obtain UK and other European licenses in due course, which will allow its operations to expand internationally and worldwide. Our main focus has been Sweden, Finland, Norway, UK, Germany and Latin America. In the coming year, undoubtedly, many operators will be looking at the emerging markets and Betzest is not an exception. We have serious plans for Brazil and Latin American countries where we see a lot of potential for our brand.
What is the main thing that you’d like affiliates and players to know about your brand?
In the online gaming industry change is constant and we are aware that technology and innovation are necessary elements for any company that wants to advance. At Betzest, we are fast-movers operating on a strong platform — SportingTech. We strive for perfection and are preparing to offer top-notch front-end and affiliate system for our partners. Also we are fully aware that to stand out a strong USP is a must. That said, we will be offering our players a Betzest branded slot — more details are coming up soon. On the sports betting side, we want to bring something new and exciting to our sports players. Hence, we are working on a performant product that will offer a vast variety of events, the best odds on sports worldwide with more than 25,000 live events monthly.
Do you have any crypto currency implemented in Betzest? Which new e-wallet payment method and corporate company you recommend?
For the time being crypto currencies are still unstable and uncertain, so we will not take the risk to implement them at this stage. But we always listen to our customers and apply valid suggestions that will give a better user experience since our primary focus is customer satisfaction. We want our customers to enjoy a thrilling casino and informed betting experience that’s tailored to them, and help to get them closer to the action. Hence, if we see any demand in these payment methods, we will definitely take them on board.
In terms of new e-wallets I believe that Paymix will succeed in the Gaming industry in the very near future. Finally, for those who are looking to create their company in Malta, I strongly recommend a trustable incorporation specialist Fairwinds.
Are there any other exciting news that you can tell us about?
