Big Reach Potential for theScore Sports Betting App
theScore is known as a media and tech company, with a very popular app for iPhone and Android users. As aforementioned, you can check scores, stats, schedules, follow your favorite teams, and more.
In a smart move by the company, it realizes that the reach it will have in regulated states is massive, and given the technology used for theScore’s application, there is no doubt the sports betting app will be a smooth and sleek.
theScore CEO and Founder John Levy is excited:
“This is a huge milestone and a result of the tireless hard work that has gone into getting our sportsbook ready for launch. We can’t wait to debut a best-in-class sports betting offering in New Jersey, delivering a truly unique and holistic sports media and wagering experience for fans.”
theScore is capitalizing on its reach, growth, and ability in the early stages of American sports betting, and it will be fun to watch and learn about the companies’ long-term goals with the betting market.

How Big Is theScore App Audience?
At the end of 2018, theScore released data on just how large its reach is and could be.
– 4,000,000 or more active users for it’s sports news and information app.
– 50,000,000 people were reached on social media and other platforms in just 2018’s third quarter.
– Sent out 1,500,000,000 alerts each month to users.
Think about this reach, if they sent an alert suggesting a sign-up with a promo code, you could easily imagine thousands of users signing up instantly.
– Nearly 3.8M followers on Facebook
– 1.4M followers on Instagram
– 572K followers on Twitter
Of course, this is a huge reach geographically, but as more and more states are regulated for sports betting, theScore already has a massive database to reach out to.
Expect them to join, and grab a slice of the hundreds of millions of dollars expected for football season in terms of betting handles.
theScore already has one of the cleaner, most user-friendly apps on the market. With the app expected to be just as good in terms of sports betting, could we see another media giant in the sports betting industry?
Time will tell.
