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.

World Championship of Online Fantasy Football Finals on the Scout Network
Participants are being promised a daily fantasy sports experience like no other with a €500,000 prize pot to play for
Scout Gaming, the world’s leading provider of B2B daily fantasy sports, sportsbook and fantasy sports betting products, is thrilled to announce the start of the World Championship of Online Fantasy Football (WCOFF) Finals tournament.
The WCOFF Finals tournament is the biggest daily fantasy sports (DFS) event in Europe and promises participants a DFS experience like no other.
The tournament runs over two consecutive English Premier League game weeks starting from today (8 February) at 19:45 GMT. The first game week is separate from the second which means finalists will be able to create a brand-new team in week two without incurring any penalties.
The engaging and highly intense DFS experience is taken to the next level thanks to the €500,000 prize pot to play for with first place receiving a massive €100,000, second €60,000 and third €35,000.
More than 500 teams will compete for the title of World Champion. The vast majority of tournament participants played their way to the event through a series of satellites that ran throughout 4Q21. Scout has developed an optimal satellite structure with entry from as little as €2 giving everyone the chance to compete in the top-tier tournament.
Andreas Ternström, Chief Executive Officer at Scout Gaming, said: “We are incredibly thrilled about the World Championship of Online Fantasy Football on the Scout Network.
“Our network is the best place to host such a prestigious event with life-changing prize money for the winners. All B2B clients connected to the Scout Network have access to our big guarantee tournaments and we will continue to grow the Scout Network and prize pools in 2022.”
Checkd Media nets Sam Allardyce to promote new FanTeam fantasy game
Fast-growing iGaming business Checkd Media has recruited Sam Allardyce to help promote daily fantasy sports (DFS) platform FanTeam’s £100,000 Second Chance Season Game.
Former England manager ‘Big Sam’, who has made a career out of restoring order at troubled clubs, is the face of the campaign’s branded content. It highlights the fantasy Premier League tournament covering the remainder of the 2021-22 season, offering players a renewed shot at success.
The content created by Checkd Media includes a range of influencers from high-profile fantasy football social accounts, who are seen posing the biggest questions on the transfer window and the current state of play in the Premier League to Big Sam.
The first part of the campaign runs up to the start of the Second Chance Season Game on January 14th, utilising on-screen branding and mentions within the content to promote FanTeam’s unique game and the chance it presents to save players’ fantasy football seasons.
Will Tyrrell, Head of Marketing at Checkd Media, said: “The Second Chance Season Game from FanTeam is a fantastic chance for football fans to chalk off what has been for many a tricky first half of the fantasy football season and start again.
“There are few more recognisable managerial experts than Sam Allardyce, so it’s great to have him involved in giving fantasy managers a few pointers on players and teams they should be targeting to have the best chance of landing the top prize. We have already seen strong results from the campaign so far, which further builds on our past successes in delivering excellent KPIs for our partners.”
Fransisco Reinhard, Head of Marketing at FanTeam, said: “Our Second Chance Season Game provides an opportunity to shine for those fantasy managers who didn’t manage to hit the ground running from the start of the season. With that in mind, there was nobody better placed than seasoned top-flight trouble-shooter Sam Allardyce to offer his insights to players at this stage.
“Checkd Media is renowned in the industry for its engaging, entertaining content and this eye-catching campaign is one that is yielding great results.”
