Tain offers one-minute wagers through new Fast Bet service


16 January, 2017 – Malta (Press Release): Tain, the gaming software and solutions provider, has successfully launched its new Fast Bet sports betting service.

Fast Bet gives punters the opportunity to place wagers on whether incidents will take place within a defined period during a sports event.

Markets for football matches include whether there will be a goal, corner, free-kick, goal-kick, red card or throw-in during the period, with Fast Bet also available for other major sports. Punters simply click on an event and select the timeframe, which could be as little as a single minute.

Fast Bet – which Malta-based Tain is to showcase at next month’s ICE 2017 event in London – enhances Tain’s already comprehensive sportsbook service.

Tain Managing Director Mathias Larson said Fast Bet offers operators the opportunity to differentiate themselves from the rest of the sector.

“Sportsbooks that can offer something different will be the ones that prosper in a competitive marketplace,” said Larson. “Fast Bet is an exciting new service that can help operators to stand out from the rest.

“Fast Bet is ideal for those punters who become bored through having to wait until half-time or full-time to see their bet settled.

“Sports fans can put their knowledge and expertise to the test over a limited period of time. If they think a spell of attack is certain to lead to a goal, or if they think a couple of bad tackles might culminate in a red card, the Fast Bet service is perfect for them.”

Fast Bet is the latest enrichment to Tain’s service since it was acquired by XIN Gaming last June.

Last month it was announced that Tain would increase the number of live events it covers each month to 23,000. In increasing the number of sports covered to 50, Tain now offers markets on the likes of curling, biathlon and water polo, as well as traditional major verticals such as football, tennis and US sports.

Larson added:

“Tain now offers the extras that complement its fully-managed sportsbook. Operators are excited by our enhanced service, and we look forward to displaying our offering to the rest of the sector at ICE 2017.”

The Fast Bet service will be demonstrated at Tain’s stand (S1-342) at ICE 2017.

About Tain

Tain is one of the most established content and technical services providers in the online gambling industry, having been founded in 1999. Tain’s strengths are its in-house products, including a market-leading gaming platform, payment gateway, casino games, and a comprehensive sports book and odds feed. Tain has also integrated top-tier game providers such as NetEnt, Evolution and Play’nGo.

Introducing the Tain Odds Service

Odds Service data feedOur most recent addition to the Tain portfolio of online gambling products delivers an outstanding Odds Service enabling you to power your own sportsbook without the need for specialists in every sporting discipline to manage the market risks inherent within sports bookmaking. The Tain Odds Service also providers operators with a massive number of both live and pre-live events every month.

Some people claim that the number of events is not the most important factor in an odds feed, but we still like to highlight the fact that only our odds feed delivers over 25,000 pre-live events and more than 15,000 live events every month. These figures are constantly growing and show no signs of slowing down.

Our odds feed delivers what we call the true odds. Unlike many feeds available, our numbers are not scraped from the numerous corners of the Internet, scanned and regurgitated out, we actually trade hundreds of millions worth of Euros every year on the markets using our own funds. As market-makers, we have a firm grip on the movements and can adjust our prices within seconds of any movement.

Announcing the launch of the Tain Odds Service, Christer Falhstedt, CEO of Tain, said:

We have constructed the Tain Odds Service with the knowledge that many operators are very tightly integrated with their current feed provider. Adapting to a new provider can be a very big and potentially risky IT project. With this in mind, we have a flexible structure that we will adapt to your specific requirements – allowing you to replace parts of or the whole feed, or even run our odds feed in parallel with your current solution.

The Tain Odds Service is a plug-and-play solution that you can easily add to your environment and run in parallel with any existing feed provider. You will also gain access to a dedicated account manager with solid trading knowledge, for any assistance you might require.

  • More than 25,000 pre-live events per month
  • Over 15,000 additional live events per month
  • Plug-and-play architecture means rapid deployment
  • True odds, giving you better margins
  • Dedicated account manager for any help
