Matching Visions Ltd and Betting Gods Ltd. form strategic partnership
Matching Visions Ltd. has acquired a thirty percent share in Betting Gods Ltd. in a synergy-fuelled bid to accelerate the growth and expansion of the already well-established UK betting advice service.
This week has seen a strategic partnership of great vision form in the iGaming industry. Ahead of their official full relocation to Malta, the rapidly expanding UK based Betting Gods Ltd has carved out a good reputation among the online sports betting community for its in-depth betting advice and professional tipster services, ranking 2nd of all betting companies on Trustpilot worldwide. This betting advice powerhouse is now teaming up with Matching Visions Ltd, a Malta based affiliate network, to further accelerate the growth and utilize the strengths within the Betting Gods brand.
That means fans of a vast range of sports such as horse racing, football, boxing, golf and tennis who have a membership with Betting Gods will now be able to benefit from some amazing deals and offers to enhance their betting experience to a new level.
The new tie-up promises to demonstrate a lot of natural synergy between Betting Gods and Matching Visions. Betting Gods founder and Director, Darren Moore, said: “We’ve been working closer and closer with the team at Matching Visions throughout 2017, and their group of brands and companies are all well respected within betting and iGaming circles. We’re delighted to announce this partnership that will see both companies not only continue to grow their own brands but enhance each other’s offerings and services for the benefit of partners, clients and punters initially within the UK and other English speaking markets”.
Betting Gods currently offer a comparison service on its professional tipster network, which allows visitors to weigh up the winnings of the various experts who provide advice on the site. Monthly profit, strike rate, return on investment, winning streaks and losing streaks can all be looked at, giving punters the best information upon which to base their decision on which tipster to side with.
“We are so thrilled to step in as formal partners in Betting Gods Ltd.”, said Dennis Dyhr-Hansen, Managing Director at Matching Visions, and continued: “At Matching Visions we have been looking for more opportunities within the betting vertical of the industry and Betting Gods is the perfect match for us. They have a significant foothold in their market niche, they are strong in the UK where we are actively seeking acquisitions and we are the perfect match for them to increase product offering and expand to new markets”.
Mikael Strunge, Matching Visions Board Member said “We are delighted to become a part of Betting Gods Ltd. and we are confident that this is a great match up. Betting Gods is extremely good at what they do and will be able to grow considerably by applying the affiliate trade that MatchingVisions can deliver. We have seen the affiliate market become more and more consolidated throughout the last few years and Betting Gods has the potential to become an affiliate powerhouse. The next step for Betting Gods has arrived and we are thrilled to come along for the ride“.
It is the start of exciting times as two respected iGaming companies join forces – and what a time in the sporting calendar to do so! While the domestic football season is done and dusted, there are still some crucial World Cup qualification games to look forward to. Meanwhile, in the boxing world, there are a huge number of exciting matches for fight fans to get their teeth into. What’s more, we even have a fantastic match-up between UFC star Conor McGregor and all time boxing great Floyd Mayweather on our hands before the end of the year. In Golf, major contests which are to be contested, and with Wimbledon approaching the timing couldn’t be better for this announcement just days before Amsterdam Affiliate Conference.
