Which of your app features do you think attracts the most interest from punters?
Undoubtedly the in-play feature on Winner Sports attracts the most punters since our app is used as a second screen solution whilst sports fans watch their favourite events.
How successful are push notifications in encouraging punters to place bets?
Push notifications help the users know about upcoming matches & promotions. We try to send push notifications to keep Winner Sports users up to date with all our latest offers. But, it is important to not bombard them with offers.
How will your native application diverge/converge from your mobile offering in the future?
We are currently developing native apps for all verticals, sports is obviously one of our main priorities.
During which sporting event did you witness the most downloads?
The World Cup was just an enormous month for us and the download numbers, like everything else, were just off the charts!
Every punter dreams about that huge win - can you give an example of an obscure bet placed where a Winner punter has won big?
One punter on Winner Sports predicted six of the group winners' at the 2014 World Cup. When you consider that Costa Rica came top of a group including Italy, England and Uruguay... this was far from easy!
Do you think mobiles and tablets have influenced the growth of in-play betting?
Undoubtedly!!! Mobile is growing very fast and is a huge part of the growth of in-play betting. There are very few punters who do not now watch sports events on one screen with a mobile or tablet in their other hand!
What is the most popular in-play bet?
The most popular in-play bet is on Under/Over Goals of popular football matches, such as in the Premier League or Champions League.
Do people wager more money on mobile or desktop? How do betting patterns vary between the two?
Currently still desktop but we are starting to see a huge increase across mobile which is obviously a sign of the punters confidence in our mobile product.
With mobile technology constantly evolving, could you see your app featuring on any other new platforms? (i.e. wearable tech, console integration)
We are in touch with a number of companies that are developing wearable tech and are hugely excited about this coming wave of watches, glasses etc. Undoubtedly, we see our app one day being implemented onto wearable tech and new platforms such as console integration.
Second screen betting is a huge phenomenon now. But how do you think sports spectating and betting could be integrated into one device in the future?
At Winner Sports, we are always concerned with how the punter can best enjoy his betting experience. If this is with one, two, or even three screens then we will do everything in our power to make this happen!
