Bandwagon is a new, complete bookmaking solution for online gaming.
Bandwagon is suitable for bookmakers looking to start a new business or modernise an existing one. We also welcome other software companies who are developing new gaming solutions and need a fixed odds engine to drive their products.
Bandwagon has the capability and functionality to grow with your business. Bandwagon is competitively priced with a flexible structure to fit the size of your business without a high entry cost. Also, the modular engine-based design also allows you to add your own features and differences from alternate vendors. There is no vendor lock-in with Bandwagon as you are free to customise your own front and back ends as your requirements change.
High performance modular design has a betting engine at it's core that all systems interact with as equals. Run your sales channels 100% client side or, place server side processing between. Utilise any design or software house to build any compatible sales or admin channel without any practical restriction on look and feel. Use any CMS/CRM you like.
Possible to run desktop and mobile websites 100% client side with no traditional server side processing for clients. This means that dedicated front end servers are largely unnecessary. In an average installation this would reduce server numbers and maintenance overhead by around 10 servers per location by having sales channels cloud hosted. Even with dedicated hosting only 1 or 2 servers would be required rather than 6 to 10.
Take advance of per hour processing costs using cloud computing services to meet spikes in demand. With the option of a 100% client side sales channel design, cloud services can automatically host your websites geographically near clients for cents per hour. Pay for computing services as there are required rather than the expense of gold-plating your infrastructure for only one day of the year.
Bandwagon works out of the box with Oracle, PostgreSQL and MySQL. There are no SQL joins in the core system so partitioning of data between servers and databases is trivial. Redis server is also utilised as a NoSQL option for messaging, hot configuration and non-core system data.
Providing API access or XML data feeds is trivial by virtue of the engine based design. Popular data feeds are already supported for market creation/control and pricing. Communication with the betting engine is via REST and XML or JSON allowing for easy integration with other Internet services.
Bandwagon's core is written in C++, the industry standard for high-performance server and client applications. We recommend a 64bit Linux distribution for hosting the core components. High performance and reliable results can be found on inexpensive commodity server hardware.
