Simplebet CEO Chris Bevilacqua described the unveiling as a milestone achievement and said the company is thrilled to collaborate with the league.

He said, “The LIV Golf Chicago event marks a massive accomplishment for the entire Simplebet team.

“We couldn’t be more excited to launch our partnership with a league as forward-thinking as LIV Golf and provide engaging opportunities for its fans to engage with the sport.”

He went on to add that the company’s team made a significant contribution to rolling out a product that is a good fit for golf fans.

Bevilacqua said in closing, “Our team has spent countless hours working to create the optimal product for LIV Golf’s fans across the country and throughout world.”

Simplebet has created a platform of micro-betting products for several professional sports leagues, including the NFL, NBA, MLB and LIV Golf, as well as for college football and college basketball.
