Stanley Cup and NBA Playoffs Create Recent Surge of Betting Across the Social Platform
Minneapolis, Minn. --News Direct-- BettorEdge
BettorEdge, a Minneapolis-based online no-fee sports betting marketplace and social platform connecting sports fans, today announced it has facilitated more than $3.5 million in exchange orders since its launch in January 2021. High interest in the Stanley Cup Playoffs contributed to the boost in orders. Two of these playoff games ranked the highest in BettorEdge’s all-time top five games in volume of orders. The volume of orders on the platform doubled from May to June, as well.
BettorEdge is a platform created with the bettor in mind. Instead of losing money to in-house favored lines, deposit fees, withdrawal fees, and the inability to withdraw funds when needed, fans on BettorEdge can trade bets with no fees attached.
“Odds are stacked against the bettor with traditional sportsbooks, and we’re changing that,” said James Seils, Co-Founder of BettorEdge. “As bettors ourselves, we knew there was a need for a social marketplace and our growth in just six months validates the need for a betting experience like BettorEdge in this industry.”
BettorEdge is uniquely positioned at the forefront of in-play betting as it gains momentum in the American market. Rather than relying on a pricing engine for every live play of a game, BettorEdge users set the market prices, effectively removing the hurdle of requiring a pricing engine. The PGA’s U.S. Open and Travelers Championship in June marked the two busiest weekends of in-play betting for the platform to date.
“Our sole purpose is to innovate for the benefit of the sports bettor,” said Greg Kajewski, Co-Founder of BettorEdge. “Our growth is proof positive that putting the power back into the hands of the sports bettor through an engaging social media platform, is the type of experience that bettors are truly looking for. We’re excited to keep innovating our platform for the betterment of the sports bettor and excited to see how our growing audience utilizes our capabilities for the upcoming NFL season.”
BettorEdge was founded in 2019 following a University of Minnesota SportRadar Innovation Challenge. Iowa native founders, now Minnesota residents, had a vision of creating a more efficient sports betting marketplace that offered a better fan experience at no fee to the consumer within the US. BettorEdge has a strong emphasis on giving the edge to the bettor through offering a fair market, providing data and analytics and creating a seamless social community.
