Multiple versions of Betting APIs
As you might notice, under Betting API (on the left menu) there are three versions of the APIs:
- Version 1: This is the old version where only soccer is supported.
- Version Transition: This is the transitional version where we modify some parameters of version 1 to additionally support multiple sport. This is probably the version you are still using as of 12th March 2020.
- Version 2: This is the latest version where API is exclusively made to support betting on multiple sport type and it is not compatible with version 1.
At the begining, when introducing the new sports Basketball and Tennis, we intended to only have one Version Transition with the API that is compatible with version 1 and at the same time support version 2. However, this has caused certain confusions due to the incompatability between version 1 and version 2. As such, at 12th March 2020, we additionally introduce version 1 and version 2. The version 1, is for your reference only if you are still only betting exclusively on soccer using our old feed data structure. The version 2, is the latest API that supports soccer and also other sports. It uses the new feed data structure.
We suggest that you upgrade to the version 2 as soon as possible cause the other two versions will be removed in near future.
