OpenBet has secured a partnership with HotBox™, adding the developer’s mobile-first Football Squares pools product to its Arena™ sportsbook content platform. 

HotBox takes the classic pool-style game of Football Squares and brings it into the modern era through a mobile-first product, providing U.S. sports fans with an entertaining way to enjoy all football games every week of the season. Through an interactive and patented marketplace concept, sports bettors can buy, sell, trade and bid on other users’ squares both pre-match and in-play. Arena™ is an innovative sportsbook marketplace that allows operators to access products from a wide range of third-party providers and elevate their offering through a single integration.

The addition of HotBox’s flagship product furthers the platform’s data offering and trading services for the U.S. sports betting market. Through products such as HotBox’s Football Squares, operators have the ability to roll out an innovative and differentiated product that can attract new customers to their platform.

The HotBox founding team said: “We are extremely pleased by the opportunity to partner with OpenBet. This platform opens a path to allow HotBox to be seen and utilized by sports fans across the world. We are excited for the iGaming and Sports Betting communities to experience the only weekly squares pools on the mobile market, and believe that our innovative and differentiated product will bring a new peer-to-peer experience to consumers, both now and in the future.” 

Nikos Konstakis, VP Sports Product at OpenBet, said: “We are thrilled to welcome HotBox to the Arena platform, with the brand providing unique solutions that allow users to apply their own skills of trading and hedging to Football Squares pools. This addition demonstrates the ever-growing appeal of Arena and the endless possibilities it offers to sportsbooks worldwide.”
