Learn how a power player in the sports gambling industry partnered with Rishabh Software to build a custom sports betting solution.

Project Overview

A UK-based global sports technology company certified for online betting under local jurisdiction wanted to build a sports betting system. It would integrate sports data feed services, a gaming management solution & payment processing platform. To eliminate third-party dependency, they needed highly skilled & certified development specialists who can develop and support them to maintain this new system.

Development of Data Aggregation Platform

  • Ensures uniform access for all events (matches, races, outright bets ) in a consistent and fast manner while managing the betting and trading services data
  • Provides the base data for all sports & matches with odds, possibilities & feeds while utilizing a betting algorithm/platform
  • Enables seamless integration across platforms to manage a seamless trading experience with accurate revenue management

Challenges

  • Limited/no in-house resources to develop a betting platform
  • No data aggregation capability to manage third-party integrations that offered accurate input processing while managing a high volume of requests
  • Accurate betting engine to forecast the right probability of wins and losses

Solution

We adopted the agile methodology and planned the sprints to manage the tasks & requirements. The main objective was to come up with a proper business logic/algorithm for data aggregation. We designed the multi-component database architecture with a mainstream technology stack (JPA, PostgreSQL, Liquibase, Apache Kafka). Our team prepared detailed functional and technical descriptions of odds processing, settling outcomes, presenting sports data feeds, settling and placing bets, and calculating risk.

Key deliverables of the sports betting engine development project included:

  • Developing a high-end Managed Trading Services (MTS) Solution and integrating it with the Unified Odds Feed (UOF) so the client can make the most of market-leading sports data
  • End-to-end development support for the backend of UOF Solution which is responsible for processing odds, presenting sports data feeds, placing bets, settling outcomes, and calculating risk
