Reading Time: 2 minutes
Fantasy Sports Interactive are excited to announce the Official Launch of their Fixed-Odds Fantasy (FOF) Suite markets in OPAP S.A’s Retail Network. FSI has been in close collaboration with OPAP’s team since 2019, for the ongoing full-scale pilot of FSI’s “Performance Props” markets.
FSI introduced a world-first fantasy sports betting concept in 2019, the Fixed-Odds-Fantasy Suite, which combines fantasy sports gaming with classic Sportsbook. Described also as a “Fantasy Sportsbook”, Fixed-Odds-Fantasy features a unique range of performance betting markets, from the original Team-based sportsbook (the “Sportsbook Manager”), to standard Over-Under options (“Performance Props”), and Head-to-Head Prediction betting (“Man2Man”).
We utilize live sports events statistics, our original fantasy scoring systems, and big data of every Sports League and Athlete to compile exclusive Fantasy Performance Odds as part of a complete iFrame solution, or as a standalone Odds feed.
OPAP, the leading gaming company in Greece and the country’s national Lottery, has been offering FSI’s “Performance Props” (Over-Under performance betting markets) under a full-scale pilot since September 2019. FSI has been compiling Odds and providing markets via the company’s proprietary Performance Odds Feed, for the English Premier League and UEFA Champions League.
FSI’s Over-Under Fantasy Sportsbook product has been marketed and offered by OPAP’s Retail Network as “Players Performance Points”, featuring a select set of Performance-based Player markets. Players Performance Points has been available to OPAP customers via SSBTs and pen/paper at the network’s 4,000+ betting shops, and their official online betting site, pamestoixima.gr.
2021 has already seen the addition of Over-Under markets for the Greek Super League. Furthermore, there will be extra options for exciting Head-to-Head Prediction markets, customized to the operator’s needs.
According to FSI’s CEO, Dennis Tsalikis: “We are thrilled to proceed with our official product launch with OPAP, Greece’s top-tier operator and global leader among the World Lottery Association members. Our experience from our collaboration with OPAP’s team and their feedback have been invaluable, and we are excited to introduce an innovative product that brings millennials back to the betting shops! We are proud to be the ones who premiered Fantasy Sports in retail shops, and it’s been an honour to do so with Greece’s leading gaming company!”.
OPAP’s Sports Trading Director, George Drihoutis stated: “I’m very excited for this cooperation as well as for your contribution, in developing and evolving our betting product. Both our agents and our players hold powerful insight into what our product should be and I am absolutely sure that they will actively support our new cooperation”!

Free to play app combines fantasy football and pack openings

Low6 launches UltimateFan, a fantasy football subscription-based app for The 2020 UEFA European Football Championship.

The new and exciting mobile application, which is free to play, combines pack openings, fantasy football and non-fungible tokens. Cash prizes worth £125,000 can be won throughout the Championships.

UltimateFan releases pack drops which reveal players in the form of cards for users to build and manage their lineups. Cards are then graded in terms of player abilities, with players ranked as either Gold or Base. Users will use the cards to create lineups which earn points based on real life player and team performances. If a user is unhappy with their cards, they can then trade their cards through our UltimateFan marketplace with others on the platform.

For those committed to getting the winning squad, UltimateFan+ subscription packages are available in Gold and Silver which guarantee a certain number of gold players per pack drop.

Jamie Mitchell, Low6 co-founder, said: “We believe that UltimateFan is the next iteration of fantasy sport. The excitement of pack openings coupled with fantasy team selection and management make UltimateFan a game not to be missed this championship.”

As seen through its partnerships with the YouTube and Instagram influencer community, ‘live pack openings’ and player pack games have proved to be very popular among next-gen sports fans. By ensuring that UltimateFan takes a community-led approach, Low6 believes that it can capture the attention of millennials and Generation Z sports fans.

“We paired the excitement and thrill you feel when you open up your EA Sports FIFA packs with the ever-so popular Fantasy Football game,” added Josh Turk, CMO of Low6.

“Fan-first experiential gamification is the founding building block to all games/apps we create, driving community-led acquisition through shared passion among our user base.”

The release of UltimateFan will build upon Low6’s successes in the last year, with the company amassing more than 160,000 new users already – growth which has largely been driven by the flagship Picks product released during the last football season.

Due to run parallel with UltimateFan during the UEFA EUROs this month, Low6’s Weekly7 – in collaboration with Uber Eats UK – plans to keep players engaged with a £5 voucher and a chance to win £1,000,000 in their free score predictor contest.

Meanwhile UFC Picks – the official UFC pick’em app of the UK and Ireland – has remained popular for avid MMA fans as they seek to compete in a £5,000 free-to-play pick’em contest for each major UFC event this year.

Premium sportswear brand Castore is the headline sponsor of UltimateFan. UltimateFan+ Gold subscribers enjoy a 30% discount on their next order and Silver subscribers a 15% discount.

Scout Gaming has launched their innovative fantasy player odds markets today with Kaizen Gaming, one of the fastest growing Game Tech companies in Europe, that operates under the brands Stoiximan and Betano. The two parties strengthened their partnership last year, aiming at bringing to life new products and additional features.

Stoiximan players are now able to bet on fantasy player odds, as a new sub-section has been added to the official website stoiximan.gr under their “Fantasy” tab, called “Player Odds”, using Scout Gaming’s proprietary sportsbook and bet slip. The following fantasy player odds are available:

  • Player Fantasy Points Over/Under: Bet on a player’s fantasy score in the match
  • Player Duels (same team duels, match duels, or cross match duels): Bet on which player will get the most fantasy points in their respective matches
  • Outright bets: Bet on which player will get the most fantasy points during a full season, month, cup or playoff

Scout Gaming is working to add an innovative “BetBuilder” to their offering, where users can combine several fantasy bets from the same matches, or combine it with regular sportsbook markets from the same match. A separate “Bet on your Fantasy team” feature will also be launched during the summer.

“We are very proud to be able to deliver additional products to Stoiximan. Player Odds are an important part of our Fantasy experience, complementing fantasy tournaments with a fantasy-against-the-house offer. It brings additional cross-selling potential between fantasy sports & the client’s sportsbook, or Scout Gaming’s proprietary sportsbook. Stoiximan is an important partner for us, and we hope to extend our collaboration in the future“, comments Scout Gaming’s Chief Product Officer, Andreas Sundal.

Kaizen’s Sportsbook Product Manager, John Tsakalakis added “We are very happy to launch the “Fantasy player Odds” to our Greek based players delivered by Scout Gaming.  We continually improve our products and services to offer the best experience to those who trust us for their entertainment and our collaboration with Scout Gaming is proven to be instrumental on this. We are looking forward to offering additional products to all 6 markets that we are currently operating in, in collaboration with our valuable partner, Scout Gaming.
