Scout Gaming reveals trio of new platform deals

8 April 2019

Fantasy sports provider Scout Gaming Group has entered into new distribution partnerships with both Inplaynet and Ultraplay, while India-facing StarPick has become the first operator in the world to begin offering its new Fantasy Matchup game.

Inplaynet and Ultraplay will both now distribute Scout’s various fantasy gaming products, with the former also set to offer the Fantasy Matchup head-to-head duel game.

Meanwhile, Indian fantasy sports platform StarPick will now offer players in the country the opportunity to play Fantasy Matchup.

The game pre-set duels between players of a team on particular days, with users selecting between four and 10 duels in order to take part. Points accumulated in these duels are based on the player’s actual performance in the real game, with the player on the highest points total winning the duel.

“The Fantasy Matchup game was recently beta launched on the Indian market and is expected to become part of our standard offering; we are continuously strengthening our fantasy offering by the release of additional products” Scout CEO Andreas Ternström said.

Trigam Mukherjee, co-founder and CEO of StarPick India, added: “Globally, this concept is very new and it is now available to our users in India through StarPick. We believe our users will love this new format and test their skills and knowledge to get rewarded financially.”

The trio of deals marks the latest step in Scout’s ongoing expansion strategy, with the provider having also recently launched in Mexico for the first time in partnership with casino operator Logrand Entertainment Group.

In November, Scout also secured a new licence to offer its B2B solutions to operators in the UK market, while the provider also in October brought in new investment to support its growth plans in the US.
