Today we are here with the team behind one of India’s biggest cricket betting platforms- SportBetPro which provides match tips and expert opinions on how to safely bet online. Faizan and Rohit both work within the content team and are responsible for having 90% accuracy in their predictions. Read our interview to understand what sports betting online in India looks like and what SportBetPro does!
Q: “In your own words, please tell us what SportBetPro does. Faizan?”
Faizan: “SportBetPro is a brand that is owned by Media run Digital and is a platform to educate players on how to bet online safely in India, along with that we also provide highly researched match tips and predictions to help you bet. We directly do not take your money or make you create an account with us, but in this world of shameful brands, we help users bet online on brands that we trust.”
Q: “What is your role in the business? This is for the both of you.”
Rohit: “So, both of us are in the content team and we are responsible for everything that goes up on the sites and social media. From the educational part of it to the match tips and the YouTube videos it is all covered by us.”
Faizan: “Yeah, we do extensive research for match prediction for all the sports that we cover, mainly it is cricket. We do the Indian Premier League, International Cricket teams such as India and Pakistan, Pro Kabaddi League, and tournaments like the Asia Cup. Our site teaches you how to bet on sports in general, but we also have specific guides for Football, Basketball, Kho-Kho, Badminton, Tennis, and Kabaddi.”
Q: “Well that was great to hear and understand your role, now what is your favourite part of your Job at Mediarun?”
Faizan: “(Laughs) That is a great question, to be honest, I do like a lot of parts whether it is our research for the matches or reviewing sports books, but personally, I would say it during the IPL time. When we write about online IPL satta, we all get very competitive at the office because we all want our teams to win. I am a fan of Kolkata Knight Riders, Rohit is a die-hard MSD and Chennai Super Kings fan, and our CEO Aryaman is also a massive fan of the Rajasthan Royals, so it is good fun.
Rohit: “I think the favorite part of my job is when I shoot the videos, it is a great way to communicate to our cricket-loving audience and since cricket is a passion of mine, I really enjoy it. And as Faizan also said, the IPL time is also great fun.
Q: What does the sports betting industry in India look like now?
Faizan: “Right now in the Indian market, the total value of the wagers online is $1.8 Billion and the country has a massive market for land betting. What we are doing is helping people just make the right decision when they do and more than that we also provide exclusive bonuses where you can bet with a bigger amount and get prizes. Some of the brands that we work with also partner up with crickets such as Dale Steyn, Suresh Raina, and Virendra Sehwag, and give out prizes. We have helped many players not only win quite a bit of money but also signed memorabilia.
Q: “Thanks for having a chat with us Faizan and Rohit, we wish you the best of luck and hope that this journey of yours goes well and you are able to educate users.”
Rohit: “Thanks for having us, it was great having a chat with you and best of luck to you too, we really enjoyed it.”
