Sports Book Operator CG Technology (formerly Cantor Gaming) has announced the launch of an upgrade to its mobile sports wagering application which is now compatible with Android, iOS and Windows PC platforms.
The new improvements include parlay cards which tie together two or more selections under one wager, future betting lines which place odds on a team’s chances to win a championship as well as additional proposition wagers on individual games.
According to Lee Amaitis, the President and Chief Executive Officer at CG Technologies, the company operates race and sports books at eight Las Vegas resorts and generates approximately 60% of its wagers from its mobile wagering application.
CG Technologies has operated mobile sports wagering since 2012 and currently boasts 20,000 registered users. More than $3.5 billion was wagered in Nevada sports books last year.
Amaitis also revealed that he expects the upgraded application to grow the company’s percentage of wagers that are placed through the mobile application as well as increase the company’s overall wagering handle. He added that if they are to continue to grow sports wagering in Nevada, then customers’ demands will be met by increasing the opportunities through the new mobile app.
In addition, the application includes offer/counter offer features that gives customers an opportunity to increase or decrease the size of any wager and continuous markets giving customers a chance to wager on changes to the money line, spread or total while a game is in progress.
The product will still retain the company’s in-running wagering feature that sees customers placing bets on the outcome of a certain play or events while the game is in progress.
The Chief Technical Officer for CG Technology, Matthew Morrissette, said that the product was the result of close collaboration with customers and that their goal was to launch an app that was more user-friendly, more intuitive and more interactive. He added that the end result is a vast improvement for their users.
