Global sports betting giant Bet365 has announced a partnership with Scout Gaming Group, a leading fantasy sports provider, to bring a range of free-to-play Daily Lineups products to North America.
The deal expands Bet365 and Scout Gaming Group’s existing partnership across five continents with multiple, highly localised products deploying a number of different user engagement, acquisition and retention strategies.
Commenting on the announcement, a Bet365 spokesperson said: “We are excited to partner with Scout Gaming Group, a veteran leader in fantasy sports. Their robust range of technologies, products and services will play an instrumental role as we expand our fantastic free-to-play Daily Lineups for our eligible Bet365 customers.”
Niklas Jönsson, CEO at Scout Gaming Group said: “We’ve now brought to market a fully localised and highly competitive free-to-play product in a region where there is considerable competition, a massive market and even more opportunities for innovative Fantasy Sports providers and operators.
We are very much looking forward to measuring the results with Bet365 and ensuring the products deliver on their tremendous potential and the vision of the partnership to bring engagement and excitement to users.”
