What is OBP capable of
The OBP has a proven history that can endure the hardest of traffic and challenges. The platform takes over 2 billion online bets every year. Now, this puts SG in a good position, as all operators see a clear benefit of having a sturdy platform when time demands it.
Let’s put this in actual numbers. In the Soccer World Cup 2018, the OBP processed over 177 Million bets in the UK alone. And, during a single match accepted over 4.4 Million bets. Where one of their top-tier operators saw a massive peak of 18,000 BPM (bets per minute) with no issues reported!
So, Caesars’ sports bet players are in for a strong, seamless, safe and most importantly a reliable platform to place their bets on. Caesars did not confirm the official launch date of their new Sports Site. But stay tuned, we’ll let you know once it goes live!
