Two online gambling companies, Unibet and Expekt have teamed up to develop and introduce a new sportsbetting game that involves players correctly predicting the results of between two and four soccer or ice hockey matches and will feature games from Scandinavian leagues as well as the English, Spanish and Italian football leagues.
Branded "Superscore" the new game was designed by Malta's Monnet Enterprises Limited, a firm owned jointly by Unibet and Expekt, in response to similar games offered by several European gaming monopolies. SuperScore is to be marketed as an alternative to other sportsbetting games such as Sweden's Bomben.
According to Svein Jonassen, Chief Executive Officer for Monnet, the game will be made available to other private operators in order to offer larger prize pools when compared to the national monopolies that may only offer the game in one country.
“The world record in highest odds on a sporting event is on this betting form, the odds were two million times the money,” said Jonassen. “In SuperScore, the winning odds are anticipated to be as high as 250 000 or higher.”
“We see a great potential in SuperScore,” said Petter Nylander, Chief Executive Officer for Unibet. “It has high winnings with small stakes on the biggest matches. It will be especially interesting as a betting form during Euro 2008 this summer.”
