Digitain is expecting its 150-strong network of partners to process a ‘record number of bets’ at the Beijing 2022 Olympic Winter Games.
When compared to the number of bets placed during the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea, the Digitain trading team expects this year’s Games to “easily surpass those numbers, for both bets struck and total stakes accepted”.
“We’re looking forward to this year’s Winter Olympics which promises to be the busiest yet for betting,” commented Zohrab Karapetyan, Digitain’s Sportsbook Product Manager.
“We’re anticipating record numbers of our customers playing across our network of partners, and we have an excellent and extended range of betting options for them to choose from.
“In fact, we have also added eight new winter sports to our betting roster, namely the bobsleigh, nordic combined, the luge, the skeleton, snowboarding, speed skating, short track speed skating and freestyle skiing, in order to generate more interest.
“This means, for the first time, and probably unique to our industry, that we will be providing odds on every single Winter Olympic sport.”
During the previous Winter Olympics, Digitain saw the highest volume of bets placed on ice hockey, followed by biathlon and curling.
Meanwhile the men’s ice hockey final between Olympic Athletes from Russia and Germany was proven to be the most popular singular betting event.
