Daily fantasy sports technology provider eyes Asian market

News on 14 Dec 2018

Stockholm-based daily fantasy sports technology provider Scout Gaming, which recently raised SEK 42 million in the financial markets to further its US ambitions, has announced a new deal that will enable it to penetrate further into Asia as well.

The company has signed a multi-year global liquidity deal with Dafabet that will see its technology used early in 2019 in Asian markets that are being researched and defined. Scout will have some Asian experience to aid its latest efforts following its DFS deal with StarPick in the Indian market (see previous report).

Scout Gaming commercial director Joakim Renman said in a statement announcing the Dafabet deal: “StarPick in India has been a big driver in leading the way, We really believe in our DFS product. That’s our prime product and that is what is working best elsewhere.

” We hear often that Asia is different, but we see no reason why DFS cannot also work there.

“We know gaming is very big in Asia – and this is a competition game. There is big potential and a natural opportunity to acquire new user groups and target users in a different way.”

Dafabet, which was established in the Philippines in 2004, will add the Scout DFS offering to its selection of iGaming products, including casino and poker games.

Dafabet marketing director Nikos Diakoumopoulos said: “We have a history of successful growth across multiple product verticals and look forward to be able to introduce Scout Gaming’s fantasy sports platform to our player base. Fantasy Sports holds great potential and complements our existing portfolio perfectly.”
