Company Description

Sparket has created The Social Betwork™, an innovative igaming platform helping our operating partners grow their live event wagering volume and reach. We provide a bet-on-anything platform allowing users to place bets within their communities (Betworks), from professional sports to e-sports, reality TV, award shows, golf tournaments, and more. We are currently in-market with our preliminary free-to-play partnerships and approaching Gaming Labs International (GLI) certification 33, which is a major milestone towards regulatory approvals for future real money wagering software. Our technology is patent pending with the USPTO, and is built with an eye on integrating Web 3.0 and blockchain technologies by decentralizing the entire wagering process. This will enable trusted users to provide event metadata and confirm outcomes as we pursue our mission to democratize live event wagering.

Key Deal Facts

Our platform appeals to broad audiences with user-friendly design and the ability to customize bets against your community (rather than the house), improving the experience for our users.

In 2018, the Supreme Court overturned the ban on sports betting, and since then it has become legal in 34 states and people have wagered over $100 billion (Source | Source).

As our free-to-play partnerships gain traction and generate revenue, we have already set up contracts with major wagering businesses, including a year-long engagement with Cahuilla Casino.
