ABOUT THIS ENTRY
Co-founded by Joey Levy and Jake Paul, Betr is the fastest sports betting media brand in the U.S. and the first microbetting-focused gaming company that is pioneering a new way for fans to engage with sports. Microbetting allows users to bet on individual plays and events—such as pass or rush on the next play in football or the outcome of the next pitch in baseball—rather than the outcome of a game.
With its simple and intuitive user interface, Betr aims to solve a problem with traditional sportsbooks—a complicated and confusing user experience with numbers and odds that are uninterpretable to the mass market casual sports fan who has never bet on sports before that looks more like a spreadsheet than a consumer product intended to provide entertainment to customers.
