Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

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.

Suncity to Spend Up to HK$35 Billion for IR in Japan
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Suncity Group has revealed its budget plan for a casino in Japan. The operator said that it would be spending anything between HK$30 billion and HK$35 billion for the prospective Wakayama integrated resort it hopes to build.

“Wakayama is rich in Japanese tradition and culture. The population is lower than Osaka or Yokohama, but there is abundant nature in the mountains and sea and we are planning a resort that incorporates these charms. I believe our ideas are in line with what the Japanese government is looking for in regional development,” Alvin Chau, CEO of Suncity Group said.

Suncity has been involved in a lot of controversies lately. Recently, it confirmed that the company is shutting its VIP gambling rooms located at The Star’s Sydney casino. According to the reports, the decision to shut VIP gaming rooms has been a mutual decision taken by both Suncity and Star Entertainment.

The Yokohama Chamber of Commerce and Industry has announced that it is going to establish an IR Promotion Council in November to promote the city’s integrated resort (IR) bid.

In addition to the Yokohama Chamber of Commerce and Industry, eight groups, including the Kanagawa-ken Employer’s Association, are set to join in the venture.

Every year, the Yokohama Chamber of Commerce and Industry submits a summary of the desires and suggestions for municipal government administration and budget compilation for the next year to coincide with the timing of the Yokohama city budget compilation.

In September, the “Desires for Yokohama City Government Administration” document was submitted to Mayor Fumiko Hayashi, which included the hope to make a Yokohama IR bid a reality.

The document also mentioned, “Recognition of the necessity to establish a Yokohama IR Promotion Council with the objective of planning an IR bid for and promoting a unique Yokohama IR, and establish recognition that an IR that creates new industry and jobs is a valid option in order to maintain and develop the city’s economy amidst a declining population.”

It also focused on the advantages of an IR bid, stating, “IR is also considered to be an effective strategy for resolving Yokohama’s issue of not attracting enough overnight visitors and ensuring new tax revenue … and we hope that a Yokohama bid would be successful to lead to the revitalization of the city’s economy.”
