Sports Interaction’s Game Chat brings online sports betting to new level of interaction and connectivity – just in time for football.

MONTREAL, CANADA. – SEPTEMBER 3, 2009 – Sports Interaction, the leading online sportsbook, has introduced a new service that brings online sports betting into a whole new level of interactivity.

“We’re very excited about this,” says Kevin Manning, Vice-President, Sports and Events, at Sports Interaction. “No other book is doing this – we’re providing something completely new in the online gaming space.”

The reason for the excitement is Game Chat, a facility that allows Sports Interaction members to chat to each other in real time on the website. For the past year, Sports Interaction users have been able to post their thoughts using the Bet Opinions facility, and now the book has gone one step further.

“It’s a technology developed in-house that allows users to do just what the name says – chat during the game,” says Manning. “It combines the convenience of instant messenger technology and the community aspect of traditional internet forums. We’re very exited about it, and very proud of it as a product.”

The technology is going live at just the right time – the start of the football season is traditionally the busiest time of year in the online gambling industry.

“All our members are psyched for football,” says Manning, “and Game Chat allows them to connect to others who are equally psyched, in real time. We’ve always talked about bringing the experience right into your living room – now we’re expanding your living room to share your football passion with others who are just as passionate about betting. The early feedback has been very positive, and we’re sure this will be a huge success.”
