First ever progressive jackpot pool for virtual racing was recently launched by Kiron Interactive and A Bet A of United Kingdom.
According to a publication by Kiron, it is said that the newly developed superfecta will be available in all the licensed betting offices, for just 15 mins throughout the trading days thereby providing the players with a chance to win up to £15000 prize.
Those placing a £1 bet on the first four horses home in 14-runner races on Kiron’s Dashing Derby virtual racing will scoop or share the winnings, with jackpots rolling
over if they are not claimed.
A Bet A Operations Manager Jason Hardman, said it would have multiple benefits for the independent sector. He added: “The Punter’s Jackpot as the game is sometime called, will add risk free revenues to the bottom lines of operators and help with both retention rates and dwell-times in their shops. It will also generate excitement on the premises, add atmosphere, and encourage collateral spend from customers invigorated by the heightened expectation generated.”
Those who miss out on the jackpot but still predict the first three right will have a free bet on the next pool game, with each new jackpot set to start at a minimum of £1,000.
A Bet A is to work with a licensed remote pool operators to deliver the product into LBOs and expect it to go live at the beginning of December 2015.
It will be available to all operators utilizing A Bet A’s bet management system, with each expected to earn generous commission on every £1 bet struck.
