LAS VEGAS, NV (MARCH 19, 2024) — Betting Hero, the leading customer acquisition, retention, and development partner for U.S. sportsbooks, has today announced that on the back of its recent market entry into North Carolina, it has activated its landmark 500,000th customer for an affiliated operator.

With a pioneering live engagement strategy, Betting Hero has been at the forefront of creating a new betting audience across regulated U.S. states since the repeal of PASPA in July of 2018. Having delivered over 110,000 new bettors in 2023 alone, the activation experts have hit this latest milestone with a concerted pre-registration effort, which kicked off on March 1st in North Carolina.

“Thanks to our high-touch, concierge approach to customer acquisition and retention in combination with our proprietary in-house testing and research efforts, we intrinsically understand the needs and wants of sports and iCasino bettors nationwide,” said Betting Hero Founder and President Jai Maw. “As such, we are proud to represent their voice throughout the industry and believe in the power of consumer-led innovation being the key to long-term success. Delivering our 500,000th customer following a successful launch in North Carolina is just icing on the cake as far as we’re concerned. The millions of customer interactions we have had over the years is what has allowed us to reach this milestone so quickly, and we’re excited to exceed that pace as we work towards delivering another 500,000 customers in the years to come.”

Betting Hero is currently live across over 20 regulated sports betting states with in-person customer acquisition through Betting Hero Live Activation. It also complements its operator partnerships with unique, added-value insights and research under its Betting Hero Research division, providing operators with unparalleled offerings as well as an industry-defining holistic view of bettors.

“The excitement from the first few days of legalized betting has been amazing to see, not only from the sports fan perspective but also from the operators, sports teams, leagues, and sports bars in North Carolina. Our Betting Heroes have been busy helping new customers across the state since the launch and are quickly adding to our 500,000 total. If the first week of legal sports betting is any indication of the potential here, the Tar Heel state is going to be one to watch,” said Betting Hero COO and North Carolina native Jeff Gajewski.
