LONDON, May 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Leading provider of award-winning turnkey sports betting solutions, SBTech, has signed an exclusive deal with Serbia's leading sports betting operator, MaxBet, to provide them with their state of the art sports betting software. MaxBet boasts over 150 betting shops in more than 30 cities throughout Serbia, as well as further afield in Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Republika Srpska and Romania. The deal will see SBTech replacing MaxBet's current system with a high performing sports betting platform for their land based operations, allowing the Serbian sports betting operator to provide their bettors with a much wider variety of sports, leagues and bet types, as well as the ability to enjoy an upgraded live betting experience with more than 8,000 monthly live events. In addition, MaxBet's signing with SBTech will allow them to successfully penetrate the online and mobile markets once regulation permits it.

We'll also provide them with the means to access the competitive markets of online and mobile with our industry leading solutions, which will undoubtedly allow them to hit the ground running once regulation allows it."
The deal also marks another important acquisition for SBTech, following their previous deals in the regulated land based and betting shop market with Albanian leader Xhoilloto, top Nigerian operator Betland, and well-known European operator BetShop.
