Scout pens omni-channel fantasy sports deal with Allbet

16 January 2020

Scout Gaming Group has entered into an omni-channel agreement to provide its daily fantasy sports platform to Namibia-licensed operator Allbet.

Under the deal, Allbet will have full access to the Scout platform, allowing it to offer a complete daily fantasy sports service to its customers.

Allbet is yet to launch its online gambling platform in Namibia, but is scheduled to go live with the fantasy sports solution before the end of the first quarter. The operator also plans to integrate the Scout platform into its land-based operation.

The agreement marks Scout’s second fantasy sports deal in Africa, having also recently gone live in Africa with online gaming operator Betway.

“We are widening our operation into the online space; we wanted an exceptional product offering and decided to include fantasy sports,” Allbet managing director Andre Botha said.

“It was clear that Scout Gaming is the true market leader, both in terms of markets, sports and game format as well as available prize pools.”

Scout’s chief executive Andreas Ternström added: “Allbet has shown a strong track record in their retail operations and I’m very happy to be chosen as their supplier as they enter the online market.”
