ONCHAN, Isle of Man – September 28, 2016 – BetStars is dramatically upgrading its US sports offering to include 348 new betting markets across American Football to include National Football League (NFL) and College Football (NCAA), and Major League Baseball (MLB). BetStars, an Amaya Inc. (Nasdaq: AYA; TSX: AYA) brand, launched the new NFL markets on the opening day of the season, ahead of the three regular season games being played in London in October. The expanded markets for college football and MLB will be available in the weeks to come.

BetStars is rolling out the U.S. sports markets as follows:                          

  • NFL pre-live: 66 markets (up from 22), including ‘First Touchdown Scorer’
  • NFL in-play: 58 markets (up from 3), including ‘Point Spread’ for every quarter

Zeno Ossko, Managing Director for BetStars, said: “The globalisation of U.S. sports has seen considerable growth in the level of interest in American sports on this side of the Atlantic. The addition of these new U.S. markets is an exciting step forward in giving BetStars customers more chances to test their sports smarts, both before and during games.”

Once again there will be three NFL regular season games played in the UK this year; one at Twickenham and two at Wembley – involving the Jacksonville Jaguars vs Indianapolis Colts (Oct 2), Los Angeles Rams vs New York Giants (Oct 23) and Cincinnati Bengals vs Washington Redskins (Oct 30).
