About the gambling platform:

OpenTag’s gambling platform provides access to a variety of Casino, Sport, eSport, and Casual gaming for players from around the world. The platform is working on a direct partnership with some of the biggest payment providers, gateways, and aggregators in the industry.

The platform is programmed to store user data, including the volume of bets and player behaviors in various situations, which helps identify the services that must be improved to provide better player experiences.

We’ve created service-driven engineering teams responsible for developing microservice-based architecture with the aim not only to achieve improved fault isolation but also to make the platform scale easily.

With the part of the services coded in PHP, we also use the Golang as it is prone to effectively maintaining heavy loads. For some of the services, the team applies Java suitable for complex systems, while front-office and back-office are written using the React.JS framework.

Project results

  • Scaled the client’s product team with 25+ motivated and result-driven specialists and formed service-driven engineering teams.
  • 9 months after starting the project, successfully delivered an MVP, and 6 months after that, went live with the first version of the gambling platform.
  • A new microservice-based platform could handle high loads 10 times faster than the client’s legacy platform.
  • Attracted 500K+ active players from around the world.
