Sky Betting & Gaming has launched its new sports betting product for the German market.

The SBTech-powered site offers more than 2,000 bet types across 45 sports, and more than 20,000 live events each month.

The operator has launched features popular in its core UK market, including daily odds boosts, cash-out and a bonus of up to 60 per cent on combination bets via the Combi-Bonus feature.

A special 100 per cent welcome bonus for first deposits of up to €100 is also on offer as the site looks to build its customer base in Germany.

"We have launched a great product, supported by a wide range of offers in a variety of sports and I’m sure our customers will love it," managing director Jochen Weiner said.

The site is the second international offering launched by Sky Bet, after its site went live in Italy in July 2016.

The operator noted that sports betting is particularly popular in Germany, with players wagering €6.3m in 2016.

"Germany is a great opportunity for us," Sky Betting & Gaming chief executive Richard Flint said. "The market is growing year by year and there are loads of passionate sports fans we believe will enjoy our product."
