September 10, 2019

Smarkets is an English based betting exchange company that has announced its entry into the US market. The company has headquarters in the UK with two other offices in Malta and Los Angeles. Smarkets allows for peer-to-peer betting through its betting exchange. Bettors can set their own odds and bets against each other. The company has partnered with Full House Resorts to provide its online sportsbook, SBK to the casino operator. SBK will see Smarkets transition from being a betting exchange to an established sports sportsbook. The app features a sleek and social interface. The SBK app will only be available for download in Indiana and Colorado on Android and iOS devices. The app will be obtainable in late 2019 right in time for NFL playoffs.

Both Missippi and Nevada facilities do not form part of the SBK deal for now. Alex Stolyar, SVP and Chief development officer of Full House said eth SBK sportsbook would bring new innovations to the industry such as social networking.

Smarkets Social Networking

The social networking will allow bettors to share their bets with an SBK network after they make a wager. The network can include anyone from friends or anyone who is within the SBK network. Bettors can also share event tips. Bettors within the network will be able to react by commenting in the shared bet. The network also has access to the bettors’ track record, which will help other bettors make their decisions. Vice president of software engineering at Smarkets, Mark Miscavage said to keep a particle of security and privacy the network would not have access to the overall profits of other bettors.
