At the moment, the Sportal365 CMS offers 17 widgets to enable creators to add sports-specific statistics and context to their articles, videos, or galleries.

Widgets are elements that display information or allow users to interact with the platform in a specific way, but widgets also open doors to more advertising opportunities for media and betting companies. From a media’s perspective, widgets create an additional advertising inventory. On the flipside, bookmakers expand their presence with contextual advertising.

Note that we constantly add more widgets and that all widgets come with a basic design that can be changed to match your brand and styling preferences by applying simple CSS.

In the following sections we explore each widget in detail:

The odds widget shows specific coefficients, for a specific game and market, from a specific bookmaker.

It’s a contextual widget used by companies because it creates additional advertising space that they can use to reach their audience and compliment their banner advertising.

The widget allows the display of 1X2, Double Chance and additional markets.

Note that odds dynamically change when the bookmaker updates them.

Also, we have the ability to deep link. This means that if we work with a provider we can make so that when a user clicks on a particular coefficient, we can prefill the bookmaker’s betslip.

Adding the Odds widget in Blocky

You can add the Odds widget by selecting the +button in Blocky and then Football widgets.

To use the Odds widget, follow the steps:
