PickGuru, a brand new social gaming platform, announced today a multi-year agreement with sports technology powerhouses Stats Perform and Sportradar.
Stats Perform and Sportradar’s global-leading data feeds will be seamlessly integrated into PickGuru’s exciting portfolio of gaming products, and will benefit users by providing a fully immersive experience as live sport unfolds.
The platform allows for friends to challenge and compete in a range of real-time and highly engaging sport prediction games. Players will test their knowledge to win big money pots for small stakes in nationwide leagues or mini-leagues with their friends. Fuelled by Stats Perform and Sportradar’s live data, leaderboards will update instantaneously as games progress and reward the ultimate sport gurus with cash prizes.
Stats Perform is the leading statistics provider for football in the UK. It is the official media data partner for the Premier League and other clients include Sky Sports, BBC Sport, The Guardian and numerous high profile betting companies. Their data will be driving PickGuru’s football games, where users can take part in contests based on Europe’s finest competitions, including the Premier League and UEFA Champions League.
Sportradar, which provides over 450 betting companies with its sports technology service, has signed a one-year deal with PickGuru and will be supplying live data from golf tournaments across the world. Whether putts are being sunk in the PGA Tour or the DP World Tour, PickGuru players will be the first to know thanks to Sportradar’s lightning fast updates.
PickGuru has recently acquired its UK Gambling Commission licence and has confirmed the appointment of TikTok executive Olly Roland-Jones as chief executive officer (CEO).
The new CEO said: “We are delighted to have secured deals with Stats Perform and Sportradar, whose reputations in the field of sports data and technology are unrivalled.
“Our users will be the main beneficiaries as they’ll encounter the thrill of live sport, inside our app, as it unfolds in real time. This deal facilitates that crucial gameplay experience.”
The platform has gained £2.6m in seed funding in their attempt to revolutionise the interaction between real-money wagering and live sport, and is due to launch in January 2022.
