Scout Gaming strengthens partnership with Kaizen Gaming (Stoiximan and Betano)
Scout Gaming extends agreement with Kaizen Gaming – being the first operator to launch a Daily Fantasy Sports product in the Greek market, Kaizen Gaming, the recently renamed group behind the brands Stoiximan and Betano, has reaffirmed its long-term successful use of Scout Gaming products.
The parties have entered into a new agreement which will replace the one entered in May 2018. As a direct consequence of the good results enjoyed by Kaizen Gaming from the use of Scout Gaming’s DFS product in the Greek market under its flagship brand Stoiximan.gr, the parties have decided to extend the collaboration, taking a long-term strategic and mutually beneficial view to the partnership, focusing on launch of new products in Greece as well as expand the partnership into other markets. The agreement also includes certain unique rights given to Kaizen Gaming for the use of Scout Gaming’s products under a certain time frame.
The new agreement will enable Kaizen Gaming to launch all additional games currently found in Scout Gaming’s product portfolio, including Player Performance Odds and Player Matchups, as well as expand into additional markets through its international brand, Betano. Further on, the parties will together aim at bringing to life new products by either finding new applications to existing products or creation of innovative new games.
“We are honored to strengthen our partnership with one of Europe’s fastest emerging GameTech companies. Kaizen has been quick to spot and act on the positive trend enjoyed by the European DFS market and the results have been amazing. We are looking forward to supporting their growth with our products. Being able to forge a strong long-lasting partnership with an exceptional business such as Kaizen Gaming is the best proof one can get to the quality of our products and the team behind it” comments Joakim Renman, CCO of Scout Gaming.
“Scout Gaming shares the same values of continuous improvement and our collaboration grows hand in hand through innovative products and services. Providing an optimum experience to those who trust us is a key objective for our customer centric approach and collaboration with Scout Gaming is proven to be instrumental on this one. It has been a pleasure to work with the team at Scout Gaming and the level of the quality of its service has truly stood out as one of the best in the business. We are confident that launching of additional products delivered by Scout Gaming will enhance our product offering and deliver more value to our business.” commented Chris Tzalavras, Head of Commercial at Stoiximan on Kaizen Gaming.

ITP enters partnership with Playtech to deliver expansive F2P and DFS portfolio to its customers
Deal allows free-to-play and daily fantasy sports specialist to offer its wide selection of content to bolster the offering of the gambling industry’s leading technology company
Inside The Pocket (ITP), the world’s biggest free-to-play (F2P) and daily fantasy sports (DFS) aggregation platform, has entered into a strategic partnership with Playtech, the world’s largest online gaming technology supplier, to bring the sector’s most comprehensive suite of F2P and DFS games to its array of international operator partners.
Accordingly, this attractive bespoke agreement with Playtech offers access to a technology platform that supports a significant number of regulated online global gambling operators, granting ITP broader scope with which to deliver more than 100 F2P and DFS games and execute territory-by-territory in localized fashion.
This platform-to-platform (P2P) integration also sees ITP enhance its status as the largest, most agile, turnkey solution for F2P and DFS across the planet. The relationship allows ITP to serve as a key tool for Playtech customers to leverage the ecosystem with powerful acquisition and retention tools, which neatly complement Playtech’s suite of other B2B services.
ITP’s platform provides an industry-first aggregation model focused on F2P and paid DFS for the gaming industry – a literal game-changing marketplace that harnesses a range of established and emerging suppliers with one simple route to market. In turn, this offers ITP clients a wealth of value-creation opportunities across a spectrum of content from a single, seamless integration, positioning DFS alongside F2P and P2P verticals to maximize customer acquisition and consumer insights.
Across the market in the Americas, DFS companies typically enjoy engaged audiences in many U.S. states or Canadian provinces before they open up to sports betting. This creative collaboration now allows ITP clients to see F2P working in tandem with peer-to-peer DFS and wider igaming in an innovative, socially responsible way.
Importantly – in South America, for example, but also worldwide – Playtech’s global business already generates significant cashflows and crossover synergies around both sports betting and igaming. This also ensures clear differentiation from nearly all other U.S. sports betting and igaming ventures for ITP, which will benefit from Playtech’s strong brand awareness and cross-vertical igaming spread amongst the growing and underserved Hispanic populations.
ITP clients can target specific recreational player-groups and fulfil nuanced acquisition and retention goals. This partnership presents a way of entertaining and educating players without the need to push them towards more questionable introductory offers that have already proven unsustainable for a mutually beneficial and socially-responsible ecosystem.
Anthony Evans, VP of Product Strategy at Playtech, said: “The international scope provided by Inside The Pocket’s content aggregation platform represents an exciting opportunity for Playtech. With open access to some of the best Free-to-Play, peer-to-peer DFS products and other agile content solutions, Playtech’s clients will have more versatile options than ever to drive diversified player engagement. ITP’s content aggregation platform also provides the requisite flexibility for newly regulated and maturing markets. We’re looking forward to how these games perform for the end user across this diverse range of markets.”
Hussain Naqi, Founder and CEO of Inside The Pocket, said: “Obviously, we’re thrilled to announce this partnership with a powerhouse provider whose reputation for excellence continues undimmed. This key integration allows ITP to serve as a tool for Playtech to offer their customers a responsive acquisition tool, amid an already revered B2B toolkit. Consequently, we can offer different sportsbooks something that is positively delineated from existing versions of F2P/DFS to help them supersede and surpass their local rivals.
“As the only F2P and DFS-focused aggregation platform, we offer a unique way for our clients and prospects to acquire and retain repeat-customers at a low cost, but also to stay fully compliant in non-regulated states or provinces and around the world. ITP’s all-consuming range of content and data tools helps to drive engagement for sportsbook and DFS audiences, by virtue of a series of game formats that have player-education and augmented activity at their core. Increasingly, though, we are adding a range of new products and game types to our ever-expanding portfolio – from pay-to-play products to pools-based fantasy games.”

It’s a genuine honor to have been chosen to roll out fantasy games for such a trusted and revered international partner, whose very name brings instant authenticity and credibility with the end user. The WonderWins app is ready to play!
“ESPN have been a brilliant and agile collaborator, organically wrapping WonderWins around their fantasy programming – from new article links to bespoke video programming and other product levers as we look forward to the much-anticipated IPL 2022 season ahead. It’s an exciting time and I’m thrilled to be over in India myself to witness the roll-out first hand.
“Our underlying platform is uniquely well-positioned to leverage this opportunity because we can diversify content, leverage consumer data and partition it for partners as the market’s shifting sands coalesce. Our multiple data partnerships deliver us unique consumer insights that will allow us to hyper-segment our audience communication over time, including for other sporting events like the World Cup 2022 football.”
Ramesh Kumar, VP & Head of ESPN Digital Media India, stated: “This is an exciting announcement, as now with this collaboration with WonderWins, ESPNcricinfo fans in India and the subcontinent region will be able to play and enjoy free fantasy on our platform, building a deeper engagement on ESPNcricinfo not just with the game-play but also with the enormous content that we will power to help users play intelligently. The timing is perfect with the exciting new season coming up and we are delighted to offer our new age cricket fans the right mix of information and entertainment for them to follow their favorite sport and teams. Consequently, we are now able to wrap an array of complementary programming and editorial content in the fantasy space around WonderWins, significantly boosting fan engagement around the game, as the new IPL season comes into sharp focus.
“It’s been fantastic to work with such like-minded, fan-first partners. The ESPNcricinfo and WonderWins Team have collaborated closely at every stage of the development and deployment process, making the integration as rapid and seamless as possible.”
With the broader F2P framework, Inside The Pocket intends to target both mature and emerging markets over the long-term, as the company bids to expand its progressive footprint into untapped territories. There, its proven international scope and flair for localization, promises to drive diversified fan engagement around targeted free-to-play sports games.
