LONDON/ROME – 24 May 2023 – Bettors using Italy’s leading sportsbook, Lottomatica (through its brands Goldbet and Better) will be the first in the world to access Stats Perform’s new live streaming features for tennis, Instant Highlights and Smart Stats Overlays™.
Stats Perform announced earlier this year that tennis is the latest sport with their award-winning new video features for bettors, following football.
Goldbet and Better also become the first operator in Italy to offer Stats Perform’s new Smart Stats Overlays™ feature for live video of football matches, alongside the popular Instant Highlights functionality for the sport.
Stats Perform’s award-winning Instant Highlights enables bettors to re-watch key match events like goals, shots on target, red cards and more while a match is in play, so bettors never miss a moment from Stats Perform’s live streaming competitions like LaLiga, Ligue 1, Brazil Serie A, plus WTA and Australian Open tennis and more.
Smart Stats Overlays™ provides Goldbet and Better bettors with real-time Opta betting stats on-screen, including expected goals, live win probability, player and team shots, fouls, corners and more, displayed seamlessly over the top of Stats Perform’s football and tennis live streams.
Both Instant Highlights and Smart Stats Overlays™ are available through Stats Perform’s plug-and-play Content Player Pro, or an easy-to-use API for custom product development.
