Vancouver-based Global Daily Fantasy Sports has completed its integration with NYX Gaming’s Open Gaming System (OGS) platform, which will allow the B2B provider to make its debut in the European market.
The B2B daily fantasy sports provider said that the agreement with NYX, announced in July of this year, was a significant part of its European market entry strategy as it provides access to over 200 gaming brands.
“Global has now demonstrated the DFS platform to select operators and has incorporated their feedback to enhance elements of the platform,” said the company. “The development of the product is ongoing and Global will be submitting its product to regulators for licensing and certification in the upcoming months.”
The supplier will then enter “selected European markets” soon after, offering the five major European football leagues; English Premier League, Serie A, La Liga, Bundesliga, and Ligue 1.
The company's DFS platform will enable multiple operators to join a network - as regulation permits - to share liquidity, and offer customers entry into ring-fenced contests or network-wide contests for enhanced liquidity and prize pools.
A proprietary "match me" rating system will pair users in head-to-head contests solely based on their skill level, while specifically designed games such as the "pick em" contest will give casual users “unprecedented ease of entry” in new emerging markets.
Meanwhile, Global has formally announced the appointment of Chris Neville as its chief revenue officer.
Neville was one of the founders of the company, and brings with him more than ten years' experience in iGaming, having also founded Lifeofsports.com which was subsequently sold to Gr88.com.
In his new role, he will be responsible for all facets of revenue generation and will work closely with all partners of the DFS platform as part of the managed services team to maximize revenue.
In September, Global brought in Fantasy Feud founder Justin Shulman as chief operator officer to work under CEO Darcy Krogh.
