    Stockholm, February 3, 2011. Nordic Gaming Group Ltd (NGG), with brands NordicBet, TrioBet and Tobet, has joined forces with sports media company PERFORM by acquiring the rights to its Watch&Bet live streaming service. Watch&Bet is currently a leading supplier of live video to an exclusive group of online sportsbooks.

The feature is completely free of charge to all NGG customers in Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, who can now watch live sports through the sites all day and night, seven days a week.

    Among the events NordicBet and TrioBet will offer, are top events like football internationals, Italian Serie A and B, English Carling Cup, Championship, Division 1 and 2, top football leagues in France, Belgium, Holland, Portugal, Scotland, Denmark, Sweden, Poland, Argentina and Brazil, among others. Watch&Bet also includes a strong portfolio of tennis content with ATP, WTA, Davis Cup and Federation Cup at the forefront. Other sports offered include basketball, volleyball, handball and snooker.

    Kari Luukkonen, Head of Sportsbook at NGG, said of the new service, “We are very satisfied with the acquisition of the Watch&Bet service, which will certainly strengthen our already strong and attractive Sportsbook”.

    NGG Affiliate Manager Shaun O'Neill also sees possibilities: “For our affiliate partners the live streaming service is a very strong tool to further promote NordicBet and TrioBet and through this strengthen our partnership”.

    International digital sports media company PERFORM is also satisfied with the deal: “We are very happy to cooperate with both TrioBet, the leading gaming company in the Baltic region, and NordicBet, a brand with a very strong reputation in the Nordics”, added Ross MacEacharn, Managing Director of Watch&Bet.
