We are a Netent fan site, that much will always be true, but most Netent casinos have other feathers to their bow, other hats which they can wear, in the form of various other products like bingo, sports betting and so on. One such multifunctional Netent casino is the gaming giant that is Unibet. This is a brand which others strive to emulate, and now they’e taken another impressive step to cement them as industry leaders. They offer the full compliment of products to players from Bingo, to Casino games from Netent, Sportsbook and Poker.
It has just been announced that Unibet have signed a deal making them the official Wi-Fi betting partner for Scotland’s Celtic Football Club, following on from their partnership with Sports Revolution who provide the Wi-Fi service at Celtic Park stadium.
What does this partnership mean for Unibet? They will become the only online gaming operator available to fans connected via Celtic’s Wi-Fi. Fans shouldn’t be alarmed though, this is not a case of their hands being forced, they can connect via 3G and 4G and use their own favourite operator, but it’s a sign from Celtic that Unibet are a brand they know and trust. As an industry leader, most players will already be familiar with Unibet and those who aren’t, will be discovering a great casino, who will no doubt become their favourite.
“Live betting is the future of online sports betting and stadium Wi-Fi is a perfect way to fuel that demand and for us to make a mark. It’s new, it’s different and it adds real value for the fans. We expect it to take off with other clubs and wanted to get in early with this first application at the UK’s first fully connected stadium, Celtic Park.”
– Ed Nicholson, head of UK marketing operations.
Ladbrokes is the onsite bookmaker at the stadium and is said to be perfectly happy with the deal, as they will remain the exclusive ‘over the counter’ bookmaker in the stadium. This move will allow Unibet to offer a host of exciting in-play betting options to fans watching the game live and their selection of Netent casino games will no doubt offer a welcome distraction during half time!
