Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

From June until now Scout Gaming has secured five agreements, of which four will be participating in the real money network. In addition, Scout has launched its Sportsbook on the first B2B client and is close to launching a previously disclosed collaborative venture with Razer Inc., the world’s leading life-style brand for gamers.

Scout Gaming, the world’s leading global provider of B2B Daily Fantasy Sports, Sportsbook, Fantasy betting and other related sport betting products has put pen to paper to several deals following this summer, of which four will be part of the world’s largest networked real money fantasy games, the Scout Gaming Network (SGN).

Recently, four new contracts with iGaming operators joining the network have been signed, out of which one operator has already gone live and two planned to launch before the end of the month. Last week a previously signed operator went live, making the total number of operators in SGN reach ten. With the addition of what is under integration, including Swedish market leader ATG, the number of SGN operators is expected to surpass fifteen by the end of year which would also mean that the number of SGN operators would then have doubled in less than 6 months.

Amongst the operators recently signed is Golden Matrix Group, a publicly traded Las Vegas based US turnkey content and white-label provider focusing on emerging markets. Another noteworthy addition is Olympic Entertainment Group, an Estonian licensed and regulated land-based and online casino operator who is currently number 1 online operator in Estonia, and top three in Baltics overall.

In addition to the growth of the real money network, Scout is bringing several new products to market. One of which is via a collaboration project with Razer Inc. the world’s leading lifestyle brand for gamers and innovator in the field of e-sports. The parties have collaborated in recent months to develop a mobile app(IOS/Android). Razer operates the world’s largest gamer focused ecosystem of hardware, software and related services and its roughly 150 million users will be able to enjoy Scout’s products by connecting their RazerID through the app.

A couple a weeks ago, the market leading Norwegian operator, Norsk Tipping went live with Scout Gaming’s software. They are currently under a beta-test for real-money-gaming which so far has met their expectations. It is the first time in eight years, a new gaming vertical for real money has been launched on the Norwegian market. Norsk Tipping are collecting customer feedback before going into a full market launch. We have long-term high expectations on Norsk Tipping to deliver substantial liquidity to SGN.

Adding to achievements, Scout has since 2019 been developing a Sportsbook on its proprietary tech stack, which entails setting up and growing an in-house odds trading and risk department. The Sportsbook via Fanteam.com and with the recent addition of live odds markets plus a long list of features planned in upcoming releases during the remainder of the year, the Sportsbook is now in the process of full commercialization.. In a given week the Sportsbook is covering roughly 20,000 betting markets spanning across 50+ international sports & leagues of which a sizable portion is attributable to Player Performance Odds also referred to as ‘fantasy bets’, unique betting markets only available via Scout Gaming. The first ‘full Sportsbook B2B client went live this month already taking bets via the Scout Sportsbook.

Andreas Ternström, Chief Executive Officer at Scout Gaming, said: “It’s with great pride when I recognize the rate at which our team is continuing to push boundaries. We continuously sign and launch operators at a rapid pace whilst executing on an ambitious roadmap. The level at which this company is bringing new products to life is one that I have never seen before. This is owed to the investments made in not only our own technology but the people that create it. It’s taken us a while to get here but in return we are building an extremely strong foundation for continuous growth over many years to come“

Luxury and grandeur await in latest Blueprint Gaming title Midas King of Gold
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Blueprint Gaming is inviting players to live like royalty and reign over Phrygia in its latest scatter-pay release, the Greek mythology-themed Midas King of Gold.

Players attempt to turn every touch into gold in this 6×5 scatter pays title, with the King himself appearing in symbols on the game’s richly coloured board alongside royal pillars and ancient artifacts.

The game has a variety of symbols, with eight or more matching symbols paying a win, removing winning symbols which are replaced by new ones cascading into view for enhanced winning potential.

The Midas Touch feature is triggered when any spin lands on the finger symbol anywhere in view. Once activated the background transforms into gold, with the mini reel awarding a cash prize, free spins, or a multiplier, remaining persistent until triggered.

Landing six scatter symbols will trigger 15 King of Gold Spins, where any Midas Touch symbols in view will stay in place throughout the free spins, and multipliers will award at least 10x the bet, with scatter wins multiplied by up to 500x.

In certain regions, players can directly access Midas Spins and King of Gold Spins with the Bonus Buy feature, for the cost of either 100x or 350x the bet.

Jo Purvis, Director of Marketing & Relationships at Blueprint Gaming, said: “The release of Midas King of Gold demonstrates our ability to produce unique and creative titles, with this scatter pays slot appealing to our players with its colourful background and strong feature set.

“The mythology theme stands out in our library of games and the Midas Touch feature offers optimal winning potential for those looking to try and turn spins into gold.”

BGC Grand National Charity Bet Campaign Raises Thousands for Good Causes Across the Country

Published

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

The Betting and Gaming Council (BGC) has raised over £15,000 for good causes as part of its annual Grand National charity betting initiative.

Over 50 parliamentarians placed a charity bet on Saturday’s Grand National, with the UK’s biggest betting operators handing over all winnings to the MP’s charity of choice.

The eventual winner was 7/1 favourite I am Maximus, ridden by Paul Townend, owned by JP McManus and trained by the legendary Willie Mullins. The Grand National win for a Mullins trained horse comes nine years after Hedge Hunter romped home in 2015.

The parliamentarians who backed the winner were Christian Wakeford MP, Maria Caulfield MP, Justin Tomlinson MP, Greg Smith MP, Peter Aldous MP, Preet Gill MP and Liam Kerr MSP.

While Bob Blackman MP had a winner with an each way bet by backing Ain’t That A Shame which came in sixth.

Some of the winning good causes included Sir Jackie Stewart’s Race for Dementia, Raystede Centre for Animal Welfare and The Fed – social care charity for the Greater Manchester Jewish Community.

Other MPs who took part included Sir Alok Sharma, Dame Caroline Nokes and Scotland Minister John Lamont.

Shadow Gambling Minister Stephanie Peacock MP also took part alongside Shadow Defence Secretary John Healey MP.

During visits, MPs heard from staff about the range of safer gambling measures available to customers in bookmakers.

However, every nominated charity will receive at least £250 after BGC members including William Hill, Ladbrokes, Coral, Paddy Power and Betfred pledged to support charities even if MPs horses didn’t win.

These donations, combined with the winners, raised a total of £15,115.

BGC members – large and small – have raised more than £6 million for good causes since its formation in 2019.

Michael Dugher, chief executive of the BGC, said: “600 million people from all over the world tuned in to watch one of the best Grand Nationals ever, including millions in the UK on ITV. An estimated 12 million people in the UK – roughly a third of adults – enjoyed a bet on the National showing once again that for millions of us having a flutter is part of our great British culture.

“I want to pay tribute to all the thousands of people who work in betting shops to help support hard-pressed high streets and local economies. I would like to thank all those MPs who took part for supporting so many fantastic good causes and for taking the time to visit constituents working in betting shops. We had more MPs than ever before, from right across the political divide, ministers and shadow ministers, supporting the BGC and supporting the Grand National. I would like to thank all of our members for once again supporting the initiative.”
