Leading B2B esports odds feed, risk management and iFrame provider, Oddin.gg, raised $4.5m from current investors, as well as Velo Partners and Genting Ventures in a Series A financing round.
The round comes after ongoing business momentum, during which the company has not lost a single client in the last 3 years while signing landmark B2C deals with Betway, Yolo group (sportsbet.io and bitcasino.io brands) and Loot.bet, among others, plus major B2B deals, including OpenBet, Aspire Global and Altenar, to name a few.
The funds will be used to strengthen Oddin.gg’s position as a global esports B2B betting leader and to expand to new verticals.
Oddin.gg offers a 360° approach towards esports betting, providing betting operators everything they need to set up successful business operations. This includes data visualisations, marketing, odds feed, risk management, and iFrame.
The Series A round comes after a successful seed round in early 2020, in which Oddin.gg raised $1.2m.
Oddin.gg Co-Founder and CEO Vlastimil Venclik said: “On behalf of the entire Oddin.gg team and myself, I am proud of everyone involved. First of all, we want to thank our clients and partners who share our vision and who have made our growth possible. At the same time, we feel fortunate to work with our investors and to see this investment helping us to scale. This round will help us to continue enjoying our exponential growth and development of new services that will cement our position as a leader in the industry. I want to thank all our partners for their trust, and we will work tirelessly on our vision to justify it!”
Genting Ventures said: “We are impressed by Oddin.gg’s technology with class-leading metrics for esports betting. From an industry standpoint, we see the dynamic potential of esports, and identify Oddin.gg as a key player offering top-tier data and service for its partners in the competitive gaming space.”
Velo Partners said: “We were immediately impressed with Oddin’s best-in-market esports odds products, as well as their broader strategy of building an esports ecosystem to service all of their customers’ esports needs. We look forward to being a part of this compelling growth story in the coming years”
