Sports bettors on Twitter can now find out football results before they happen with the launch of@askbetegy.The new proposition from BETEGY, a sophisticated online and mobile prediction tool that accurately forecasts outcomes of matches and a range of betting markets, provides instant responses via Twitter, where sports events are among the most popular discussion topics.
During the 2013 Champions League final Twitter users sent 117,000 tweets per minute and a total of almost 4.8 million thematic messages.
Social media users who want to know the result of an upcoming contest can simply tweet the names of the two teams playing to@askbetegy (e.g. Chelsea Arsenal @askbetegy) to receive their bespoke forecast, together with information on its probability.
As well as via Twitter, the tool is available as a free or premium product to subscribers at www.betegy.com.
BETEGY uses a proprietary, self-learning algorithm that correctly estimates better than one-in-two results from more than 100 weekly fixtures in international, continental and domestic competitions across the world.
It inputs a wide range of variables, including numerical data and methodical models; team dynamics, news, injuries and suspensions, and is entirely automated. Output is presented in the form of percentage with the attractive visuals and easy-to-understand graphs to illustrate.
“For anyone who wants to know the outcome of a football match, before it is played, then BETEGY gives them the best chance,” said Alex Kornilov, BETEGY CEO.
“A unique combination of mathematical modelling, statistical analysis and hundreds of hours of research gives BETEGY an unprecedented level of precision and the launch of our new Twitter service means that our predictions are available instantaneously,” added Kornilov.
As well as individual customers, BETEGY provides forecasts to media organisations including global sports network ESPN and Przegląd Sportowy, Poland’s biggest sports newspaper, owned by Ringer Axel Springer. BETEGY is currently available in English, Polish and Russian.
