MOBGEN Press Release December 2015
Sports betting has never been easier! For sports betting service TOTO, MOBGEN created an app for both iOS and Android, a new mobile-optimised website and an app for playing TOTO in hundreds of stores on a tablet device. With the newly designed mobile platforms, it is now easier for customers to search events, place bets, look up their favourite teams, play various betting games (like TOTO 13), scan a betting voucher to see if they have won, and look into their account details and betting history.
TOTO has been active for more than 50 years in the sports betting business and is the biggest sponsor of sporting clubs in the Netherlands. 70% of the profits generated by TOTO goes via NOC*NSF (Dutch Olympic Committee & Dutch Sports Federation) to the 76 connected sports associations. Traditionally, TOTO customers have been placing their bets in stores, but there is now a rapid uptake of customers accessing TOTO’s digital platforms, particularly the mobile channel. TOTO wanted to connect with their clients’ behavior in order to further optimize and redesign the TOTO betting platforms for mobile.
Point of Sale app
Along with the smartphone apps, MOBGEN also developed an app for new point of sale devices. On these devices customers can play TOTO and print a betting slip directly in the store. This was recently rolled out in 50 stores in The Netherlands. In 2016, a total of 450 stores will have this device ready for their customers to play TOTO.
