Betters can pick from a list of games being played on that day, and provides statistics to support informed decisions. The second option lets users bet on stuff that might occur in the game. The third option is more of a customized bet that allows the user to choose an opponent and set his own terms for the bet, the report detailed.
According to founder and Chief Executive Officer Jason Neubauer, the startup plans to secure sponsorship deals to raise revenue. The said deals would have to offer perks for YouBetMe app users the report explained.
