(PRESS RELEASE) -- Multi-channel sports betting and casino platform provider Digitain has launched an online sportsbook with Pokerdom, the largest poker network in the CIS.
The new site is powered by Digitain's fully-managed sportsbook platform, which offers odds on 65 different sports, taking in 7,500 leagues and more than 3,000 betting markets.
It will also give Pokerdom's players access to over 30,000 live events each month, including next year's football World Cup, which is set to be held in Russia for the first time next summer.
Pokerdom is among the top 10 largest poker rooms in the world, according to pokerscout.com 2017, and has over one million registered users. It has also been nominated in the Poker category at the forthcoming EGR Operator Awards.
Suren Khachatryan, Digitain CEO, said the site, which went live last week, was the first they had developed for a poker network and demonstrated their ability to diversify the platforms of industry leaders across the globe.
He added, "We have been working hard to forge new partnerships in different parts of the world, and Pokerdom represents the next step for us.
"We are very excited to have teamed up with the number one online poker site in the CIS to offer their players sports betting, and we can't wait to see how business builds in the run-up to next year's big tournament."
Sergii Romanenko, head of sportsbook at Pokerdom, said, "It's great to be teaming up with Digitain, who has a wealth of experience in offering sportsbook solutions across both retail and online environments.
"Our players will now be able to benefit from a huge range of pre-game and in-play sports betting markets thanks to its cutting-edge platform, and the imminent arrival of the World Cup means the timing of our launch couldn't be any better."
Digitain is set to join a host of other betting and gaming suppliers for the Excellence in Gaming conference in Berlin from 30 October to 1 November, following recent successes at ICE, the iGaming Super Show and Betting on Sports.
