The betting business today

  • DRIVEN BY CROWD KNOWLEDGE

    In sports betting prices are driven by crowd sentiment, and not by numbers nor performances.

  • POOR R&D ON TECHNOLOGY

    Contrary to common belief, bookmakers invest limited resources in R&D and price optimisation.

  • DRIVEN BY MARKETING

    Most of the bookmaker's budget goes on marketing to attract users and money.

The Mercurius Financial Approach

  • LEVERAGING THE CROWD NOISE

    The noise generated by the crowd creates odds fluctuations, and our technology is able to turn them into an opportunity.

  • RESEARCH AS A STATE OF MIND

    Mercurius' core activity is research: building new models, strategies, and tools are the reason why we are in business in the first place.

  • DRIVEN BY NUMBERS
