Tuesday, October 18, 2011 : Flash based in-play front end component agreed
 
Globet Sport, the UK-based internet bookmaker, has chosen online gambling software developer Zukido to supply its new in-play sports betting platform.
 
Zukido will build a Flash based in-play front end, and provide consultancy services to help integrate the Zukido solution with the Globet proprietary back end.
 
The new Zukido-built in-play solution will feature dedicated scoreboards for Football, Basketball, Tennis, Volleyball and Ice Hockey, a spokesman revealed this week. The application will also include the capability to handle any other sport, whether in match or race format – from Handball to Formula 1 racing.
 
The initial launch of the multilingual web application will support five languages – English, Italian, Portuguese, Greek, and Bulgarian – and should be live before the end of the year.
 
Zukido commercial director, David Sargeant, said: "Zukido works with a number of bookmakers who are looking to add value to their existing sports betting product. Like Globet, many of these sports betting companies have proprietary systems and Zukido specialise in helping these organisations evolve their own systems. This is both in an advisory consulting capacity as well as building bespoke products on top of these systems."
 
Enrico Salvatori, the managing director at Globet, said of the deal: "Zukido are quickly and cost-effectively helping us with our existing system and the roll-out of a next-generation in-play service."
