ibet is the new online gambling platform developed by the tech whizzkids of Silicon Valley. It’s rumoured to become the standard by which all future online gambling platforms are measured. By marrying together emerging technology, ibet will provide more immersive user experiences that brings players closer to the live sports they love. The rapid scale of eSports has provided a rapid shift in R&D and technological advancement, all of which is supporting richer, more secure playing environments.
Following success in Asian markets, the senior team at ibet have turned their attention to Europe by incorporating the Claymore Group of gambling brands and hiring a team of industry veterans. Alongside them, COO David O’Callaghan has been instrumental in the user design and operational development of the platform, and is leading the launch of ibet ahead of Euro 2020 this summer.
