Scout Gaming has entered into a licensing agreement that allows the brand Scoring 11, which will be run in the same company as Indibet.com, to access Scout Gaming’s full product range.

 

“This is the third customer agreement we sign where the counter-party is expected to have a significant presence in the Indian market that is growing strongly. Cricket is a huge sport locally and I’am excited about continuing to grow the liquidity network we have established. Further on this means larger prize pools and a more attractive product” comments Scout Gaming CEO, Andreas Ternström.

“We see how Fantasy Sports has a strong growth in the country. With players like Dream11 who are extremely popular at the forefront, we have explored the possibilities of expanding our value chain to operator business focusing exclusively on fantasy sports. After that scan of the market, Scout Gaming came across as the most competitive player, having established a global liquidity network with access to both popular local sports such as Cricket and Kabaddi, but also international leagues such as Premier League are something we believe will be winning in the long run”, comments Harshit Mehta, CEO of Indiabet.com.

Sports Gaming UK which owns Indiabet.com holds stake in Scoring 11 (Playsafe Games Pvt Ltd). IndiaBet is run by Harshit Mehta in India and he owns majority shares in Playsafe Games Pvt Ltd. Indiabet.com is originally an affiliate focusing on the Indian market. Scout Gaming‘s products are expected to be launched during the year. Scoring 11 is also expected to be part of Scout Gaming’s global liquidity network. Fantasy Sports is considered a skill game in India and is thus fully legal.

Japanese government has delayed the establishment of Casino Management Board and issuance of the more specific IR bidding regulations in Japan. It is widely assumed that having public attention focused on the IR issue will negatively impact the electoral prospects of the ruling conservatives.

The ruling party now looks inclined not to take up the IR issue until early 2020, seriously impacting the schedules of some local governments. Such a delay may be the death blow for Osaka’s plans to have its anticipated Yumeshima IR opens its doors ahead of the 2025 World Expo, although that remains to be seen.

9stacks Launches Pokerface With Gopal Datt: India’s First Poker Chat Show

9stacks Launches Pokerface With Gopal Datt: India's First Poker Chat Show
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Pokerface with Gopal Datt is a first-of-its-kind poker chat show which celebrates the lives and stories of poker players. This first episode can be watched on the 9stacks YouTube Channel here. Episode 2 of the series was released on Friday, 17th May 2019, on the 9stacks YouTube channel. The episode that has Datt interview poker heavyweight Deepak Bothraand TVF Bachelors fame Badri Chavan, can be watched here.

The twist is that each episode features one actor/celebrity and one poker player, and gets both to spill the beans about their journey to fame and fortune. In a fun way, this draws parallels between the featured celebrities and poker players and celebrates the achievements of both guests.

The first episode of the show, hosted by Gopal Datt (the Internet’s very own funny man), features Amol Parashar, of TVF Tripling fame, and one of India’s top poker players Nishant Sharma. Last year Nishant won the highest ever prize money by an Indian poker player at the World Series of Poker Main Event in Las Vegas.

Nishant, along with fellow poker pro Vivek Rughani, was part of the 9stacks Team India at the World Series of Poker and they became the first two Indians to enter the top 100 in the prestigious WSOP Main Event. Read the article here.

In the episode, Nishant speaks candidly about achieving his poker dreams and how he became a ‘Hero’ for other players in the industry. Many players now come to him for advice on their gameplay and some even ask him for selfies. His ‘Bina Darre’ playing style has won many hearts.

Nishant is accompanied by the celebrated actor Amol Parashar, who is also an avid poker player himself. An IIT Delhi alumnus, Amol was always into acting and was very interested in theatre. Amol recalled how his poker skills helped him sniff out a bluff early in his career: “Once I was offered a film with big casts like Mr. Amitabh Bachhan, Naseeruddin ShahSharman Joshi. Since I was new in the industry, I was asked to attend the workshop for the same where I was asked to pay Rs. 15,000 as room rent. I couldnt help but smell a bluff there. I mean, after all, if they were such a big film company, they surely wouldn’t ask me to pay Rs. 15,000 to book a room to rehearse in, right?”

Many more revelations came in the rapid fire segment of the show where the answers were ‘rapid and full of fire’. Unlike Koffee with Karan, the guests here got a lot of love instead of hampers!
