What is BuddyBet?

Everyone is your Buddy in BuddyBet! We have finally found a fun solution to holding our buddies (friends, family, acquaintances, and even strangers) accountable for their bets! BuddyBet is an interactive platform that allows you to make social bets on a plethora of things (bet you’ve looked up plethora on google just now) like: Who can hold the longest plank in 15 minutes? How long can everyone keep off their phones in a dinner with friends? How late your friend will be even though they said they were on their way Will Boss be going to work in a not so good mood today? Place them all on BuddyBet! If there’s one thing that we love in BuddyBet, it’s good ol’ fashioned banter. As a social betting app, our core business values aren’t so businessy (not a word) at all; they centre around our desire to socialize and hang it on our buddies when we win a wager or bragging rights (still working on the wager though, don’t worry). In fact, that’s the entire reason we started the company has something to do with how our Founder John, has experienced, and let’s be honest, how many times has the below scenario played out with you as well: John makes a wager with his buddy Shaun that next time they go to McDonalds the ice cream machine will be out of order. They shake hands to solidify the bet as any gentleperson would do. One month later they go to McDonalds to find the ice cream machine is out of order. Shaun denies all involvement in any wagers around the ice cream machine saying ‘Nah mate, it must’ve been with someone else’. John and Shaun grow apart and their friendship withers away like Monty Burns (get the reference?). Now, we’re sure your situation wasn’t EXACTLY the same as John and Shaun, but isn’t annoying when your friend slips their way out of a bet, especially when there’s cold-hard cash on the line, (again, working on this). We say – no more! Much like posting your new year, new me goals on socials, BuddyBet holds your buddies accountable with in-app features allowing users to track and comment on your bet. Your other friends can even pick sides or duplicate the bet if they’d like to get in on the action. It’s super interactive and allows you to place either money or handshake bets. Download the app now and join our banter-heavy, discriminationless (also not a word) community.

Let’s make it more exciting!

Met Gala is a celeb highlight fans look forward to every year for multiple reasons including fabulous outfits, spontaneous proposals, and much more. And with Buddybet, we want to spice your usual Met gala tradition a little bit. Invite friends and family to make bets on who’s who and what’s what. Luckily for us, we get not one, but two Met Galas over the course of just a few months, with the first in September 2021 due to COVID-19, and the second in just a few days. Last year was interesting. From political statement dresses, to the diverse guest list, and how can we forget the meme worthy Kim Kardashian’s all black ensemble from Balenciaga? It really is an event where celebrities never fail to impress us with their takes on the theme and we bet this year will be no less, the stars will surely put on an eye-catching and entertaining show for us to obsess over and bet on.  Interested in who’d be the best dressed at this year’s gala? Any fashion houses that will make a statement? Will there be a Will Smith smacking buzz in this year’s event? Place all those gossiping wonders and make it a bet on Buddybet. Here’s a quick rundown how you can create a bet using the app: [carousel_slide id=’2939′]
