GVC extends virtual sports deal with Leap Gaming

9 March 2017

GVC Holdings has extended its virtual sports content partnership with Leap Gaming.

The deal will include Leap’s scheduled racing events that are currently available, as well as new innovations in-play tennis, football and on-demand virtual events.

The on-demand product allows punters to generate their own, exclusive virtual sport events schedule and place bets whilst on the move.

Leap’s products will be made available across GVC’s network of gaming brands, such as bwin and partycasino.

“In-play is a critical feature for real-life sports betting and we have every confidence that it will be a popular element in virtuals, while on-demand is another great innovation that will enable our users to define their own event schedule,” GVC chief product officer Liron Snir said.

Yariv Lissauer, chief executive of Leap, added: “Leap is committed to innovating in the virtual sports vertical and we are delighted about the recent feedback we have received for our new titles and features.”
