Scientific Games boosts esports portfolio with GameScoreKeeper deal

Industry technology group Scientific Games (SG) has secured a new partnership with GameScoreKeeper whereby SG will receive access to both historical and live automated esports data from the Danish data supplier.

The partnership with GameScorekeeper will cover esports data for use across SG’s sportsbook software and sports pricing offerings, including an Esports Scoreboard Product developed and marketed by SG.

Keith O’Loughlin, SVP Sportsbook and Digital at SG Digital (SG’s online division), commented: “Esports are growing in popularity by the day. We’re thrilled to partner with GameScorekeeper to provide our partners with reliable live match data for the esports that players and spectators love.

“In esports, data is king, and both the players and audience require a streamlined feed of information in real time. Partnering with GameScorekeeper, we’ll be able to provide that world class experience.”

Users will gain access to an overview of in-game events such as number of headshots, round winners or number of kills by specific players across a range of games including Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO), League of Legends (LoL) and Dota2.

“We are happy that there continues to be a high demand for our offer of accurate esports data and that we can now count a highly respected operator such as Scientific Games among our clients,” added Felix Klastrup, CEO and Founder of GameScorekeeper.

“In a booming market like esports betting, it’s all about gaining a first-mover advantage and companies who invest in quality data gain exactly such an advantage.”
