Online gaming operator Dafabet has targeted growth across multiple product verticals after securing access to the Scout Gaming fantasy sports and pool betting platform.
Scout Gaming believes that the deal, expected to launch during the first half of 2019, is ”the first time a major Asian facing operator has launched daily fantasy sports in the region”.
It is just another example of the global strategy deployed by Scout Gaming, who secured a €4 million investment in October to drive its US vision, before securing a B2B licence to service the UK DFS market just a few weeks later.
The size of the Scout Gaming’s global liquidity network, and the subsequent presence of large prize pools, was cited as a significant factor in the attractiveness of the games to Dafabet.
Scout Gaming CEO Andreas Ternström said: ”We are proud that Dafabet selected us as their fantasy sports partner. Dafabet is considered to be one of the largest private operators in Asia and is highly respected within the industry on a global basis. It is clearly very satisfying to sign up another tier 1 operator.”
Dafabet’s Marketing Director Nikos Diakoumopoulos added: “We have a history of successful growth across multiple product verticals and look forward to be able to introduce Fantasy Sports to our player base. Fantasy Sports holds great potential and complements our existing portfolio perfectly.”
Earlier this year, Dafabet announced a record sponsorship deal with Celtic – extending a partnership with the club for the next seven seasons, which helped the operator to win the Sponsorship of the Year prize at the recent SBC Awards.
