Scout Gaming’s platform will support a wide set of Esports, including popular titles such as FIFA, NBA 2K, Virtual Formula 1, CS:GO, LoL, and DOTA2. Gameplay on Esport via Scout’s products is currently available on partner sites such as Fanteam.com, Stoiximan.gr, Strendus.com.mx and Bethard.se with additional launches planned during coming weeks. In parallel, sports and playable events systematically expand in order to meet demand.
