Good Gamer Corp., a Daily Fantasy Sports and Esports platform, is pleased to announce the official launch of its GoodGamer Fantasy Gaming App.

GoodGamer is India’s first Daily Fantasy Sports and true Esports gaming platform. It will launch with cricket and CS:GO and add Football (Soccer), Valorant, Dota 2, a Quiz game and Indian Rummy before 2021. GoodGamer is the first to offer several other features, including prop fantasy contests, player injury reports, player injury alerts, an AI-based lineup optimizer, and private contests where the contest creators can earn a commission for creating and managing the contests.

In addition to the official launch, GoodGamer has signed an advertising agreement with Disney+ Hotstar, the official live streaming platform for all premium sports in India, including Cricket. GoodGamer will be present as an advertiser on the biggest T20 League tournament that begins in September in UAE. Disney+ Hotstar is India’s largest premium streaming platform that has changed the way Indians watch their entertainment – from their favourite TV shows and movies to sporting extravaganzas.

GoodGamer has signed international bowler’s, Umesh Yadav and Kuldeep Yadav as the Company’s brand influencers for the festive season to mark the return of cricket. Umesh Yadav is an Indian cricketer with 10 years of professional experience playing for multiple domestic, T20 league and national teams. He was the highest wicket-taker for India in the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup. Yadav also plays for the national team as well as multiple domestic franchise teams.

“India and Cricket represent an incredible opportunity for GoodGamer. With a cricket fan base reaching 900 million users, the return of franchise cricket on Disney + Hotstar is the perfect place and time for launching our app. Our app is also primed to gain access to India’s 350 million mobile gamers with CS:GO and our future launch of Valorant, Dota 2 and Freefire, The demographics in India couldn’t be better aligned with the unique sports and Esports focus of our Daily Fantasy app,” said GoodGamer CEO Charles Creighton. “We have planned to launch in the region for some time, but doing so just in time for this tournament is the icing on the cake for us. With all eyes on cricket through to the Final Match in November, our unique features will bring an attractive alternative to Indian DFS fans – fans we can keep engaged throughout the year with our year-round calendar of Esports & traditional sports contests, quiz games, and more.”

GoodGamer’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Good Gamer India Private Limited is located in Bangalore, India to manage operations, marketing and customer service led by former Vancouverite Ravi Nagarajachar, Vice President of Operations.

“Having lived in Vancouver, Canada, and now back in my native Bangalore, it’s exciting for me to be working with the team at GoodGamer to bring this app to Indian sports and Esports fans,” said Ravi Nagarajachar. “We’ve developed a fantastic relationship with leading Esports tournament organizers and marketing groups such as Skyesports of Chennai, one of the top Esports tournament organizers and casters in India. Skyesports will be leveraging their million+ followers, influencer contacts, and its 50 million users reach on Youtube to give us that rocket fuel for our launch here. So many cricket fans also love Esports, this is a perfect fit that makes sense.”

GoodGamer is offering a deposit bonus for every deposit a player makes to enter a DFS contest. Users can earn additional money by signing up for GoodGamer’s Refer-a-Friend program. The Refer-a-Friend program allows a user to earn up to ₹100 Cash Bonus for each referral and a 5% Cash Bonus on a friend’s deposit up to a ₹1000 Cash Bonus. The more friends a player refers to play in a real money contest, the larger bonus. Users may register after they download the app on GoodGamer.in.

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Ahead of the launch of the new season DFS expert DraftKings has launched the industry’s most comprehensive Australian Football Rules (AFL) Daily Fantasy Sports product to appeal to an untapped global audience of hundreds of millions of fans in one of the world’s most exciting and toughest sports.

Daily fantasy sports players will be able to get involved in a multitude of new and exciting games with huge cash prize pools across a 31-week long season that includes four weeks of finals. It will be the biggest first prize in DFS history in Australia with $85,000 available on the opening night and $200,000 across the opening round.

The introduction of Aussie Rules (AFL) DFS broadens DraftKings’ already leading portfolio of daily fantasy content to more than 15 global sports and enables an even wider international fan base to get involved.

As the world’s fourth most attended sport and with more than 111.4 million people tuning in to AFL broadcasts in 2020 alone there is a huge internal fanbase as well as major cross-sell opportunities for DraftKings with AFL to attract dedicated fans as well as traditional NFL, NBA and golf customers among others. I have attached an information sheet about the sport for more information.

Jeffrey Haas, SVP International Strategy DraftKings said: “The Australian Football League boasts huge appeal both in Australia and internationally with the fourth-highest domestic audience attendance globally. This compelling sport caters to Australian players domestically along with their vast expatriate population around the world as fans in Canada, the US and the UK can all watch via the AFL’s international broadcast partners.

“With DraftKings’ rich daily fantasy heritage, we are thrilled to add these AFL contests to our industry-leading variety of DFS categories as an ‘Approved AFL Fantasy Sports and Betting Provider.’ Fans all over can discover and incorporate AFL action into their second-screen gaming experience as the 31-week-long season plus four weeks of finals gets underway where some of the toughest athletes on the planet square up for intense end-to-end action.”

Scout Gaming signs agreement with ATG
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Scout Gaming has entered into an agreement with AB Trav & Galopp, ATG (the Swedish Horse Racing Totalisator Board), Sweden’s largest gaming operator measured by turnover.

The companies have agreed to jointly launch Scout Gaming’s award-winning DFS product on ATG.se with a soft launch aimed at the second quarter 2021, followed by a wider marketing push in the third quarter, in time for the start of English Premier League and other major European sport leagues.

ATG is owned by the Swedish trotting and thoroughbred associations and was the exclusive provider of horse betting on the Swedish market from 1974 until the end of December 2018. When the Swedish market re-regulated in 2019 the company was able for the first time to expand into other product verticals such as sports betting and casino.  ATG has since quickly proven to be successful in what is a highly competitive online gaming market – having held the largest market share of the total gaming market in 2019 and engaged over 1.3 million customers in the Swedish gaming market. This is the first time a major leading operator launches Scout Gaming’s DFS product on the Swedish market.

“I’m very excited to have the privilege of launching our fantasy sports product on ATG.se, thus reaching a wider potential player base than ever before. ATG has in a short time proven to be very agile in its expansion into new products, therefore not a surprise when they now are first to seize the opportunity of being early mover in a fast-expanding trend within fantasy sports “, comments Scout Gaming’s CCO, Joakim Renman.

“We try to constantly offer our customers exciting new experiences and are keen to add fantasy sports as, what we hope will be, a key vertical offering for ATG moving forward. We have watched this game format grow in popularity around the world and believe that Swedish customers will also appreciate this exciting product. With our almost 50-year legacy of offering pool games and recent expansion into sports betting we believe that we have primed for a successful rollout of daily fantasy sports to the Swedish sports audience”, comments ATG’s Head of Sports Betting, Christian Erlandsson.

The agreement is expected to have a moderate to high impact on Scout Gaming’s revenues from the second half of 2021 onwards.

The teams include USA East, USA West, Canada, England, Scotland, The Republic of Ireland, Wales, Germany, Australia and the Rest of Europe, with each country having 10 players representing the nations.

When: The DraftKings World Cup will be run over two weeks, from 22nd October to 1st November.

The top four teams with the highest combined points in week one will progress to the final, with the remaining six teams eliminated.

Scoring: The teams will collect points by betting on six different events in the first week including the English Premier League (EPL), PGA golf, Major League Baseball (MLB), Australian Football League (AFL), Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), and the NFL. Only the top four teams will qualify for the final week where the events will be PGA, UFC, EPL, NFL and Nascar.

Week one has a total of six events. All 100 players enter each contest. If you get first place, you get 100 points for your country and if you get last, you only get 1 point. Second place gets 99 points, third place 98 points, and so on.

 

Yellow events highlighted above are the five Premiere Events, where points count as double (first place gets 200, last place gets 2).

Payout Structure: As this is a team competition, all overall prizes are split between team members. However, there will be individual prizes for the winner of each contest ($500 or $1000 for premiere events). The top prize is $10,000.

1st – $10,000 2nd – $7,500 3rd – $5,000 4th – $2,500

All shadow events will offer $1,000 with the final contest NFL (11/1) being $3,000

A landing page will be live later this week which will be the one-stop-shop for those wanting to follow and it will include teams, live leaderboard, contests and shadow links etc.
