The UFC is trying to cash in on sports betting by starting with a UFC Live Betting Gambling App. According to the latest sports news, the UFC is currently testing its live betting App in collaboration with IMG Arena.
Furthermore, the advantage of using the UFC Live in-match betting app is that it will use official UFC data. This is in addition to having official UFC logos, photos and fighter bios. Thus, this information will allow the full incorporation of their data with sportsbooks and other sports gambling apps.
The Features of the UFC Live Betting Gambling App
The Features of the UFC Live Betting Gambling App will include over 50 live betting opportunities per bout. This is in addition to having 20 new types of UFC bets available in real time. Thus, UFC bettors will be able to bet on the underdog at key moments during the fight.
One of the most difficult yet promising aspect of the app is the 20 new types of real time UFC bets. This is because it is very difficult to create sports betting odds for live matches. Thus, MMA live bets are not very common since the action is fluid and the statistics are subjective.
Lawrence Epstein, the UFC COO says that ““In-game betting is the fastest-growing part of the sports-gaming industry.” Thus, it is worth doing and “Some of the stuff we’re doing is stuff that hasn’t been done with respect to UFC in the past.”
The new UFC Live betting software will include options like number of take-down attempts, fighter knock down, total solid strikes. Furthermore, it will even include the number of times a fighter will spend on the mat. Therefore, even internet gaming websites in Korea will benefit from it.
For sportsbooks around the world, the UFC Live In-Fight app may just be the thing to boost their sales. This is because UFC fans are men between 21-44 which is the exact demographic that sports betting companies target.
The live in-fight app will be available from the UFC for a fee and part of the profit from it. However, the exact amounts for the fees and commission are not yet available.
