SIS (Sports Information Services), the leading multi-channel supplier of 24/7 live betting services, has gone live with its newly enhanced 49’s offering – a wide range of numbers betting and virtual racing products that will drive profitability for online and retail operators worldwide.

After acquiring the full shareholding of the 49’s business last year, SIS has significantly invested in the product range to broaden its appeal and deliver new draws for bettors to experience.

The established twice-daily 49’s draw has been rebranded as “The Original Live Draw”, receiving a fresh look while retaining the strong heritage that has made it popular with operators and bettors for over 25 years.

SIS has developed a new high-margin 39’s draw, which takes place every fifteen minutes to provide more frequent betting opportunities. Additional innovative products are set to be launched later this year, including a new quick-fire draw format that will be made available across all hours of the day. The complete 49’s offering is supported with virtual horse and greyhound racing from SIS’s well-known and popular tracks, as well as the Irish Lotto Bet product that allows players to place a bet on the outcome of the Irish National Lottery.

The company has invested in a new web platform for 49s.co.uk. With a mobile first approach that also reflects the updated brand proposition, there are also more opportunities for affiliates to be integrated within the site.

The new 49’s offering is now available to players via a wide range of SIS’s leading operator partners, including Coral, Ladbrokes, Paddy Power, William Hill, and South African brand Marshalls World of Sport.

Jess Mills, Head of Product Proposition at SIS, said: “When we acquired 49’s it was always our intention to evolve the product offering to optimise the betting experience. Following months of hard work and working closely with our operator partners, we are proud to unveil the new-look 49’s offering.

“Product innovation is key to evolving 49’s, and while the iconic twice-daily draw remains, we are introducing new draw formats that will complement the offering and deliver greater betting opportunities.”

MiFinity and CashtoCode announce payments partnership

Published

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

CashtoCode, the instant cash payment service for online merchants, and Mifinity, the secure iGaming ewallet, today announced a new global payments partnership. MiFinity users can now top up their iGaming accounts at more than 150,000 physical locations worldwide using the CashtoCode cash deposit network, as well as using CashtoCode’s new online evoucher product.

This is the first time that MiFinity customers will be able to make payments with cash, which many customers prefer for privacy, security and self-control reasons. For CashtoCode, the partnership with MiFinity puts its service inside one of the fastest growing iGaming eWallets. Meanwhile, MiFinity chose to partner with CashtoCode for its global reach, with more than 150,000 retail locations across Europe and international markets such as Africa and Australia. Its evoucher solution is also extremely popular in regions where iGaming customers cannot easily make payments such as LATAM and Asia – where they can be redeemed instantly online like any traditional retail voucher code.

The two companies are also a good match on important issues such as security. MiFinity is highly regarded in the global iGaming community for secure virtual payment processing, and it set a high bar on security standards when searching for a cash deposit partner. In CashtoCode, it found a service designed to eliminate fraud and money laundering concerns through a unique closed-loop cash payment system. Its cash deposit codes cannot be transferred by users, meaning they are far more secure and lower risk for iGaming operators.

“CashtoCode has grown remarkably over the last 12 months, and working now with MiFinity will ensure even more iGaming customers will access our range of cash and online payment services,” said CashtoCode CEO, Jens Bader. “Cash remains the most widely used and widely accepted form of payment around the world, and all leading iGaming operators are considering the best ways of adding cash to their payment portfolios. By working with brands like MiFinity, we hope to become the number one cash deposit method of choice for all operators in the years ahead.”

“We wanted to add a cash deposit option for our users and CashtoCode was immediately identified as the best fit for our needs,” said MiFinity CEO Paul Kavanagh. “We are known in the iGaming industry for safe, secure and smart payment services, and it was important that any new payment partner fulfilled the same criteria. The CashtoCode service is proven to be extremely popular and effective, and we see it as a unique value proposition in the market. I’m confident that we can build a successful and sustainable partnership with the team, that will benefit our customers and operators alike.”
