UK – New draws enhance SIS’ 49’s offeringBy Lewis - 22 July 2021
SIS has gone live with its newly enhanced 49’s offering a wide range of numbers betting and virtual racing products aimed at driving profitability for online and retail operators worldwide.
SIS acquired the full shareholding of the 49’s business last year and has since significantly invested in the product range to broaden its appeal and deliver new draws for bettors to experience.
The established twice-daily 49’s draw has been rebranded as “The Original Live Draw”, receiving a fresh look while retaining the strong heritage that has made it popular with operators and bettors for over 25 years.
SIS has developed a new high-margin 39’s draw, which takes place every 15 minutes to provide more frequent betting opportunities. Additional innovative products are set to be launched later this year, including a new quick-fire draw format that will be made available across all hours of the day. The complete 49’s offering is supported with virtual horse and greyhound racing from SIS’s popular tracks, as well as the Irish Lotto Bet product that allows players to place a bet on the outcome of the Irish National Lottery.
The company has invested in a new web platform for 49s.co.uk. With a mobile first approach that also reflects the updated brand proposition, there are also more opportunities for affiliates to be integrated within the site.
The new 49’s offering is now available to players via a wide range of SIS’s operator partners, including Coral, Ladbrokes, Paddy Power, William Hill, and South African brand Marshalls World of Sport.
Jess Mills, Head of Product Proposition at SIS, said: “When we acquired 49’s it was always our intention to evolve the product offering to optimise the betting experience. Following months of hard work and working closely with our operator partners, we are proud to unveil the new-look 49’s offering. Product innovation is key to evolving 49’s, and while the iconic twice-daily draw remains, we are introducing new draw formats that will complement the offering and deliver greater betting opportunities.”
