Scout extends DFS to Greece with Stoiximan and Betano
Scout Gaming Group has agreed to launch its daily fantasy sports (DFS) service in Greece with GML Interactive brands Stoiximan and Betano.
Both Stoiximan and Betano will now be able to offer their customers a full DFS solution, with roll-out planned ahead of this summer’s Fifa World Cup national team football tournament.
Stoiximan is regarded as one of the leading gambling operators in Greece, with a turnover of between €250m ($295.3m) and €300m, and serves as the main shirt sponsor of top Greek football teams Olympiakos and PAOK.
Betano focuses on the Romanian market but plans to also go live in Germany this month.
“The fact that GML Interactive, owner of a dedicated sports brand and one of the largest private actors in Greece, chooses to do this with Scout Gaming clearly shows that the DFS vertical continues its establishment in Europe and that we have the leading B2B product,” Scout chief executive Andreas Ternström said.
George Kourakos, head of product, design and innovation of GML Interactive, added: “We work actively with our sports offer and want to ensure that we can always offer our customers the best product.
“We employ an active sporting engagement and are involved in a number of sponsorships, which is why this area is particularly important to us.
“With Scout Gaming’s product we see opportunities to further develop the product offering and at the same time establishing a new sports vertical in a European liquidity network.”
