180Vita Enters Social Sports Market With Tipday Launch
25 March 2014, Edinburgh, UK (Press Release)
180Vita, the owner of igaming media and entertainment sites such as Pokertube, Footballtube and PokerVIP, has entered the realm of sports tipping with its new free betting site Tipday.
Tipday is now fully live after soft-launching earlier this year, and allows players to make predictions on thousands of sporting events from English Premier League football to NBA basketball.
Players can earn points for correct tips, and enough successful tips can see them earn ‘expert’ status on their preferred sports, all without risking a single penny. For those who want to progress to real-money betting, Tipday also promotes the best available odds on each event from a variety of different sportsbooks.
180Vita is confident that, as the site grows, it will be able to offer the world’s largest selection of sports betting tips in one place, with users able to pinpoint which tips have come from the most successful tipsters. Tipday will help users discover new tips and new sporting events to bet on, while giving them the chance to make some risk-free money with prizes for the most successful tipsters each month.
To mark the launch, Tipday is giving the users with the most-shared betslips on Facebook and Twitter respectively two free tickets each to the Premier League football game of their choice.
“With more and more people becoming interested in sports betting, we wanted to build the world’s largest sports tipping authority to help provide a fun and social way to learn how to make informed bets,” 180Vita founder Jamie Nevin said.
“Sports fans love showing off that they know more than their friends, and Tipday lets them show off their expertise and sporting knowledge without having to risk any of their money. Then, when they’re ready to make real-money bets, they will be in the best possible position to do so.”
In addition to the desktop version of Tipday, 180Vita expects to roll out iOS, Android and Facebook apps before the end of Q2 2014.
