Scout Gaming launches fantasy player odds market with Kaizen Gaming
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

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.

ASX Sports Partners with RugbyPass to Create Global Rugby NFTs

ASX Sports Partners with RugbyPass to Create Global Rugby NFTs
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

ASX Sports, the only next-generation virtual sports exchange to offer fans live in-game ‘trading’, has announced an exclusive long-term agreement with Sky New Zealand’s global digital rugby platform, RugbyPass, to bring NFT-enabled fantasy gaming to rugby fans for the first time. Under the agreement, data from RugbyPass will fuel the proprietary ASX technology which will deliver real-time gamification of live sports to RugbyPass’ 10 million-plus audience.

ASX’s Sports NFT Exchange has the unique capacity to harness live data feeds and responsive algorithms to create the first NFTs for sports with listed values that fluctuate in real-time, based on the underlying performance of players and demand in the marketplace. Trading on the Sports NFT Exchange resembles a virtual stock market and opens the door to a new era in fan engagement, creating a unique second screen and OTT experience in which fans enhance the value of their player portfolios via live, any-time ‘trading’, including in-game, when perceived value might change the most.

Paddy Power, President at ASX said: “Our vision for how sports NFTs can be created, valued and exchanged is revolutionizing the fan experience and further elevating the centrality of the second screen in modern-day sports. We offer the entire sports value chain new dimensions in commercial opportunities and brand loyalty across the growing facets of fantasy sports globally. We’re thrilled to team up with RugbyPass to bring our technology and offering to a rapidly evolving market that is ripe for further disruption.

ASX’s cutting-edge cryptographic technology ecosystem is deployed in concert with leading digital asset providers that enhance its proprietary blockchain and smart contract technology. 

Neil Martin, CEO at RugbyPass, added: “It’s an exciting time to partner with ASX as fans discover new ways to interact with and express their passion for rugby and its superstars.  Through NFTs, we have together built a fresh product-line with a singular focus on what makes rugby supporters tick, further emboldened by the unique data sets and insights provided by our acquisition of Sports Analytics. This collaboration complements our wider ambitions and focus on digital services, and we will explore further opportunities to develop and foster communities based on rich, actionable content.”

An estimated 1.3 million people participate in rugby in the US, with a further 8.8 million active fans (according to sports and entertainment insights and analytics firm Gemba) a number set to increase fourfold over the next decade with the growth of Major League Rugby and USA Rugby’s plans to bid for upcoming World Cup tournaments. Already firmly established as a premier sport across Europe and the Southern Hemisphere, rugby’s popularity in the US will continue to grow rapidly, with younger, digitally native audiences prone to pursuing “non-traditional” sports content.

This trend dovetails with the proactive push by ASX to tap the US, the world’s largest sports and sponsorship market, and replicate the strong brand and presence it has built in Ireland and the UK, due in part to pioneering founder Paddy Power, whose earlier work at Paddy Power Betfair saw it brought under the Flutter Entertainment umbrella, alongside other powerhouse brands in FanDuel and PokerStars. Conversely, ASX is primed to partner with Tier-1 leagues like the NFL, NBA, MLB, and NHL and capitalize on the sizeable opportunity for next-generation US fantasy sports ‘trading’ to be marketed to their global audience.

ASX, who just relocated headquarters to Miami, will be announcing routes into capturing US and global market share via major joint ventures and agreements with prominent sports leagues, teams, and athletes.

Leaders in fantasy-sports data and customised sports-data visualisation partner to elevate the action for fans and bettors

 The fantasy-sports fan experience is poised to reach a new level with the announcement that two of the fastest growing players in the field of sports data are joining forces.

Fantasy sports data provider FTN Network has partnered with Betegy, the premier independent provider of personalised sports data and gaming visualisation, to provide an all-encompassing experience for fantasy sports fans and sports bettors.

Among the two companies’ inaugural collaborations is the FTN show “Betting with Benny and Tino.”

“Our partnership with Betegy allows us to leverage the latest technology for our media platform and to allow consumers of betting-oriented and fantasy content to have a unique, one-of-kind experience,” said Eliot Crist, FTN Networks chief operating officer.

“This important partnership with the outstanding team at FTN represents a key building block in our ongoing development of the definitive bridge between raw data and sports viewers, gaming enthusiasts and bettors.” Said Alex Kornilov, CEO of Betegy.  

“Bringing data to life is essential to engaging fans fully, as more and more providers across sports and games – and across screens – are realising.  With this FTN alliance, Betegy’s presence encompasses traditional sports like American and European football and basketball, traditional gaming such as cards, and emerging categories such as Esports and, now, fantasy sports.”

The global fantasy sports market is projected to grow from $20.36 billion in 2020 to $22.31 billion in 2021 for a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.5%, per a September 2021 report from Research & Markets.

The alliance follows important commercial agreements signed by Betegy, most recently including ESTV, PokerGO, Germany’s Tipico, as well as Parimatch, Bwin and Coingaming.io, as it continues to bring its EGR award-winning solution to tier-one gaming and sports betting companies worldwide.

The redeveloped Sky Sports Fantasy Football platform is one of several of projects with high-profile media companies Checkd Dev, the development arm of Checkd Group, have in the pipeline.

Adam Patton, Checkd Dev MD, said: “Sky Sports Fantasy Football is a game and a brand that is loved by football fans throughout the UK and the opportunity to completely redevelop the technology and apps was one we jumped at the chance to be involved in.

It is testament to the Checkd Dev team that we have achieved just that and we look forward to rolling out further enhancements in the months and years to come.”
