A sports betting platform owned by the Checkd Group posted record results last month.

FlashPicks, which initially launched in 2022, reported more than 195,000 screen views and 31,000 wagers in December 2023 marking a record for Checkd’s first venture outside the UK.

The platform, which was developed in-house by Checkd’s development division, offers betting tips and allows users to compare odds across North American sportsbooks, including FanDuel and DraftKings. FlashPicks also provides real-time updates for major sports leagues.

“We’re delighted to have seen out 2023 with record bets and users and feel confident that our positive trajectory will continue with the highly capable Checkd Dev team fueling our innovation and growth,” said Checkd Head of U.S. Operations Callum Broxton.

FlashPicks is available in regulated U.S. sports betting markets but also serves bettors in Canada after being awarded an affiliate license by the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario.

FlashPicks plans to build on its recent success with an upgrade of its SmartPicks betting tool, which went live in North America in February 2023. The tool allows users to “make more informed betting decisions” by using Smart Acca technology, which produces historical statistics and betting data on sports teams. SmartPicks, which also allows users to track their over/under player prop betting markets, reported a record 11,000 searches in December 2023.

“The SmartPicks tool, which helps our users cut through the noise and build their bets with the latest stats and data, is now easier to use than ever,” said Checkd Dev Managing Director Adam Patton. “The Player Prop Tracker is a unique live betting tool that makes FlashPicks more engaging while saving bettors time and effort.”
