Inspired Gaming highlights ‘huge opportunities’ for virtual sports in US

Monday, November 17, 2014

Steve Rogers, Inspired Gaming’s senior vice-president for virtual sports and mobile, has told TotallyGaming.com that the served-based gaming specialist has targeted a number of “huge opportunities” for its Virtual Sports products in the US market. 

Inspired has reported a significant increase in the interest of its Virtual Sports range, with the company having entered into deals with a number of major operators in recent times. Virtual Sports currently supplies 11 different sports and four numbers games to land-based, online and mobile operators across 40,000 venues and 200 web and mobile sites in 35 countries.

While the firm recently strengthened its UK presence through a deal with Gala Coral Group, Inspired has also launched its virtual sports products in Italy and Belgium this year via deals with Gamenet and Circus Group, respectively.

Inspired's Virtual Sports lottery products are also supplied to the National Sports Lottery in China through AGT. In addition, Inspired has become the first provider of virtual sports in the Philippines and Colombia via agreements with the DFNN Group of Companies and Betancur. 

“Inspired has over a decade of experience in launching its Virtual Sports into new markets,” Rogers told TotallyGaming.com.

“It is the sole provider of virtual sports to the UK and Chinese markets and it has over 90-per-cent market share in Italy.

“As well as Asia-Pacific, there are huge growth opportunities for Inspired’s Virtual Sports proposition in the US. 

“Inspired added basketball to its roster for the first time in Las Vegas and expects this 11th game addition to its games line-up to enable it to break the US market for its Virtual Sports product.

“As Inspired is a global company, with offices all over the world, it is able to service new markets in-country, with local teams. Just this year, it opened an office in Rome. 

“Inspired’s virtual sports enable governments and operators to drive structured and incremental revenue – there is huge demand and Inspired is experiencing excellent year-on-year growth as it extends its global footprint.”

Rogers added that Inspired has implemented a five-year product roadmap that will not only allow the company to expand into new markets, but will also strengthen its product offering.

“Inspired is investing heavily in a five-year product roadmap for its virtual products covering upgrades to the existing sports, new sports and numbers games and the delivery of completely new technology taking advantage of cutting edge technology platforms,” Rogers said.

“All of Inspired’s existing and new customers will be able to take advantage of the most innovative product enhancement strategy on the market.

“By investing heavily in graphics, Inspired is able to stay ahead of the competition – by innovating it ensures that its customers are getting the best products on the market today.”
