The NFL was the last American sport league to sign official betting deals. The league announced that three sportsbooks would become its official betting partners, allowing them to access official league data, promote their relationship with the league, and tie their brands to statistics. If the deal holds up, the league will receive almost $1 billion from the partners over the next five years, with an option to opt out after three years. Official betting deals are a big business, but the NFL has some guidelines that it will not break.
The website or app should also have a robust support system, as issues can arise when placing a wager. Poor customer support can cause you to lose your wagers and potential winnings. Sometimes refunds and withdrawals can take weeks or even months. Check whether the website is active on social media and has multiple avenues for customer service. Even if the website or app has a limited number of contact options, it is worth it to have more than one.
After becoming the official betting partner of the Memorial Tournament, betPARX is planning to launch branded fan experiences. This will make the experience for fans of the game much more engaging and fun. With the Memorial Tournament as its launch pad, betPARX has leveraged its brand recognition into becoming the official betting partner of the PGA Tour. This partnership will also give bettors access to intellectual property and video highlights for the tournament. While it is not yet clear if the betting will be legal throughout the PGA Tour, it should be noted that it is not yet an official partner in all areas.
