Simplebet-LIV Golf betting partnership to debut at LIV Golf Chicago with Hard Rock Bet
Micro-betting leader to add first-of-its-kind LIV Golf micro-betting through Hard Rock Bet
Sept. 19, 2023
NEW YORK – Simplebet, the global technology leader in micro-betting, will unveil its golf markets at the LIV Golf Chicago event beginning Friday, September 22nd. The course at Rich Harvest Farms in Chicago will play host to a field of 48 of the world’s best golfers, marking the first event where Simplebet will create micro-betting markets for a LIV Golf tournament.
These micro-betting markets will initially roll out exclusively with Hard Rock Bet for players in Arizona, Tennessee, and Ohio, starting with LIV Golf Chicago. Hard Rock Bet’s highly-rated platform is available through the App Store (iOS users), the Google PlayStore (Android users), online at HardRock.bet, and at its retail sportsbooks, and also offers Simplebet’s markets for NFL, college football, MLB, NBA, and college basketball through its Play-by-Play betting.
Powered by Simplebet, sports bettors will have the ability to wager on new in-event markets for key golfers on the LIV Golf roster. The partnership paves the way for never-before-seen markets on LIV Golf events, such as betting on a specific score a player will have on a hole (Birdie or better, Par, Bogey or worse), whether a player will hit the fairway off the tee on Par 4s and Par 5s, as well as whether a player will hit the green on a par 3. Markets such as “Will Brooks Koepka hit the fairway on this hole” and “Will Cameron Smith make a birdie or better on this hole” have now become actionable opportunities for LIV Golf fans across the U.S.
“The LIV Golf Chicago event marks a massive accomplishment for the entire Simplebet team” said Simplebet CEO Chris Bevilacqua. “We couldn’t be more excited to launch our partnership with a league as forward-thinking as LIV Golf and provide engaging opportunities for its fans to engage with the sport. Our team has spent countless hours working to create the optimal product for LIV Golf’s fans across the country and throughout world.”
LIV Golf features a world-class 12-team, 48-player field boasting a combined 25 major wins in pursuit of the LIV Golf League Individual Championship and Team Championship. Superstar names amongst the list of 13 major winners who will compete include 2023 PGA Championship winner and 2023 U.S. Ryder Cup Team selection Brooks Koepka, 2022 Open Champion and 2022 LIV Golf Invitational Chicago champion Cameron Smith, World Golf Hall of Famer Phil Mickelson, 2020 U.S. Open Champion Bryson DeChambeau, and two-time major winners Dustin Johnson, Bubba Watson and Martin Kaymer.
Returning to Rich Harvest Farms for a second consecutive year, LIV Golf Chicago is the last regular season stop in the United States before the league travels to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, October 13-15 for this year’s regular season finale. The season-ending 2023 LIV Golf Team Championship returns to Trump National Doral Golf Club in Miami, October 20-22.
Simplebet has developed a suite of micro-betting products for the NFL, NBA, MLB, LIV Golf, college football and college basketball. The company enables sports betting operators, media companies and technology companies to enhance live sports by offering engaging experiences in real-time with its proprietary automated operations platform.
