KamaGames launches social sports betting in Pokerist revamp

26 September 2019

Social casino operator KamaGames has announced a wide-ranging overhaul of its flagship Pokerist app, which sees the studio launch a social sports betting product for the first time.

While a number of new elements have been added to boost player engagement and activity within Pokerist, the social sportsbook product is perhaps the most eye-catching addition. It allows players to bet on a range of different sports, including the football competitions such as the English Premier League, Spain’s La Liga and the Champions League. Also featured are US professional leagues such as the National Football League, National Basketball Association and Major League Baseball.

This is complemented by esports betting, with the feature offering odds on events based around popular titles such as Counter-Strike, Data 2, Overwatch and League of Legends.

Alongside the new betting product, KamaGames has launched Casino Guide, a feature that allows new players to discover the range of games on offer in Pokerist. It takes the form of a map that guides players through various tasks, allowing them to try specific games, and winning in-game items for playing.

Among the games to discover is a new title, based on Alice and Wonderland. Through its launch the developer aims to further grow its slot revenue, which rose 69% year-on-year in the first half of 2019.

The range of scratchcards available in the app have also been overhauled, with a number of new mechanics now featured. These allow players to win a wider variety of prizes, and the opportunity to grow potential wins.

Finally, KamaGames has launched a referral programme, allowing players to invite friends into the game. Players will be rewarded with virtual chips when they refer a friend, who will also be given a virtual currency prize.
