BetConstruct’s soiree held on July 16 marked the beginning of a new innovative approach to sports betting and gaming personalisation with the launch of the virtual assistant Hoory.
Hoory, pronounced [`hu:ri], is named after a frivolous and lazy person from an Armenian fairy tale. However, unlike the fictional character, BetConstruct ’s Hoory is here to assist players in placing bets, learning sports statistics and navigating through operator’s website. By recognising the user’s voice Hoory interprets commands and performs the requested actions.
“VRT has been around for a while. We trust the technology to remind us about the important meetings, search for information we need and set the mood for an evening with music and entertainment. It is the right time to entrust the gaming experience to this immersive technology and let Hoory take the interaction with an online casino to the next level.” said Vigen Badalyan, BetConstruct’s founder and CEO.
In Amsterdam the software developer presented the beta version of Hoory which currently runs on VBET. BetConstruct’s guests had a chance to be the first to talk to Hoory, ask her to place bets and learn more about her background through her own words. In future Betconstruct ‘s Hoory will extend the range of its functions to be able to understand user’s needs in advance based on the previous conversations and help them effortlessly navigate through operators’ websites.
