BetDash sports betting on social network
 
Irish bookmaker and online gambling firm Paddy Power has debuted a new social betting game titled BetDash.
 
Players have ten days to turn a virtual GBP 100 000 into GBP 1 million using their betting instinct and sporting knowledge. BetDash pays out 25X the player's initial stake if they achieve the GBP 1 million goal.
 
Sports disciplines include tennis, football and horseracing among many others as well as live in-play betting.
 
The game provides:
 
–  bet feeds which show a real time view of each bet placed by BetDash players.
–  the ability for players to follow top player activity
–  trending bets which assist players in making informed decisions
–  boosters which allow players to unlock various bonuses throughout the 10 day game
–  Challenge functionality on other players bets which earns bankroll bonuses
–  Awards for reaching prescribed goals that can then be redeemed for either a bankroll bonus or a time extension.
 
Justin Goldman, co-founder of BetDash said: “There have been many failed attempts at creating a successful social betting game. BetDash is bucking that trend by delivering a unique game design that enables punters to enjoy the thrill of sports betting in a low-risk, incredibly engaging social gaming environment.”
