Scout Gaming is to enter the Latvian and Lithuanian markets for the first time after agreeing to deliver a daily fantasy sports (DFS) platform to Nordic Leisure.
The agreement gives Nordic Leisure, the owner of Optibet and Gold Club Casino, full access to Scout Gaming's DFS platform enabling them to offer the service across its subsidiaries and to all of its customers.
Scout Gaming’s platform is expected to be fully integrated and operational at Nordic Leisure by the end of 2018.
“I’m pleased that the demand for our offering is increasing,” said Scout Gaming chief executive Andreas Ternström.
“Nordic Leisure is a competent, fast growing company with a significant share of its revenues from regulated markets, and I believe they will be a strong partner in the future.”
Nordic Leisure will include all of the group's brands in the liquidity network being established by Scout Gaming. The network includes or will include Betsson and Bethard, as well as Gofantasy, Fanteam and PAF which have already launched the Scout Gaming DFS product.
“We have strong knowledge about Daily Fantasy Sports internally and when we finally found a product that meet our quality requirements, it was an easy choice,” said Nordic Leisure chief executive Peter Åström.
“DFS has a natural fit in our existing product offering, and we see clear synergies with our broader media- and sports activities within the group.”
