On January 9th, the leading sports publisher in Bulgaria – Sportal.bg will launch the new service for its customer base under the “House of Fans” brand in partnership with Carlsberg.
The service is powered by Fans United Media – a cutting-edge headless API-based technology that allows sports publishers and bookmakers to deeply engage with their audiences through free-to-play games and content personalisation. The Fans United technology is integrated with live sports data, bookmaker’s odds and the world’s leading sports content management system Sportal365.
The platform provides out-of-the-box popular prediction games such as: top 7 (predicting correct scores of 7 matches), match quizzes (predicting specific markets within a particular match) and single predictions (1×2, correct score, and other markets). Furthermore, endless number of custom games can be created based on specific criteria such as teams, leagues, markets, time-frames, etc.
The entire fan experience is gamified and allows users to earn points, badges (“bragging rights”) and cash prizes according to custom tiering system.
