SIS (Sports Information Services), the leading multi-channel supplier of 24/7 live betting services, has agreed a deal with bet365 to stream its market-leading 49’s fixed-odds live numbers product online for the first time.
A popular product with customers for over 25 years, the world-famous 49’s Original Live Draw is now live-streamed by bet365 to its millions of members across the world. The highly engaging live draws are introduced by a team of well-loved professional presenters, who actively engage with players through the 49’s social media channels.
The revamped 49’s website provides bet365 with additional opportunities to engage directly with players. The website generates around 1 million unique users per month, and is regularly updated with the latest results, stats on the frequency of balls, and information on the presenters.
Launching with bet365 in the online space is further evidence as to how SIS is successfully transforming the 49’s brand and diversifying the product offer. SIS is delivering the engaging 49’s experience to more bettors worldwide by providing online operators with a solution that drives engagement and revenues.
The 49’s brand, which launched in 1996, has undergone a brand refresh and significant investment after SIS acquired the 49’s business in 2020, with new products and a new web platform, which has broadened its appeal to a wider audience.
Jessica Mills, Head of Product Proposition at SIS, said: “Bringing live streams of the 49’s Original Live Draw online is a natural progression in our journey to diversify and grow the product and brand.
“We have worked hard to enhance our 49’s portfolio of live numbers draws to provide online and retail operators worldwide with an effective product that is appealing to a vast player base. The high-quality production of the live draws, and ability to win big from a small stake, will resonate well with bet365’s customers.”
A bet365 spokesperson said: “As part of our ongoing strategy to provide best-in-market lottery output, partnering with SIS to secure the integration of 49’s Original Live Draws online is an important move.
“The enhanced product is proven to engage live numbers draws players, which will allow us to strengthen our own position in this growing betting vertical. We have a successful ongoing partnership with SIS and we are confident that the 49’s online draws will help provide our customers with live video access to the draws as they take place, and deliver incremental revenues for the bet365 brand.”
