EnergyBet leaps into Virtual Sports
By Marsha Turner
EnergyBet is to offer virtual sports betting having entered an agreement with Leap Gaming. This will mark EnergyBet’s debut into the virtual sports betting market, and will add considerable value to the growing brand.

Leap Gaming, who started as developers of desktop skill games, are now providing virtual sports like tennis, horse racing, dog racing, velodrome cycling, speedway, and trotting for EnergyBet.

EnergyBet’s CEO, Marcin Sapinski, commented: “Virtual sports betting is one of the fastest growing markets, and offers potentially limitless growth opportunities. With such an incredible opportunity at stake, it was critical that we chose the very best virtual sports developer to work with and, in Leap Gaming, we’re confident we’ve found the best.”

The partnership will enable EnergyBet’s commitment to creating a premium site by expanding the range of their sportsbook, which already includes: English, European and American football, rugby, basketball, tennis, Formula 1, golf, and athletics.

Dan Fischer, Leap Gaming's Chief Commercial Officer is equally optimistic about the partnership, saying “We are delighted to partner up with EnergyBet and provide our virtual sports to their extensive footprint. EnergyBet has been meritoriously recognised as a Rising Star in Sports Betting and we are confident Leap’s virtual sports suite and specifically our newly released INSTANT Suite will complement Energybet’s gaming and sports portfolio extremely well and we look forward to a long lasting and prosperous partnership,” Fischer added.

Both teams are currently working hard to ensure a smooth rollout, and players can expect to see changes to the EnergyBet site within the next few weeks.
