Åland-based charitable gaming operator Paf.com has agreed a partnership to enter the daily fantasy sports (DFS) market.

The operator has agreed a deal with Malta-licensed platform provider Scout Gaming Group to expand its online offering with a range of fantasy sports games.

“As a good cause company we choose our partners carefully,” said Paf’s director of games Kim Johansson. “In Scout Gaming Group we feel we have found a good and flexible partner to take us into the DFS area.

“We strongly believe that DFS will see significant growth in the years to come, and we are happy to be ahead of our competitors and offer this product to our betting and sports interested customers.”

With offices in Sweden, Norway, Malta and Ukraine, Scout Gaming offers a range of sports for fantasy play through its in-house StatCenter, including football, ice hockey, basketball, handball, golf, and cycling. The company also powers the DFS sites of Fanteam, Dream Liga and CFL.cz.

Scout Gaming CEO Andreas Ternström commented: “There's a rapidly growing interest in fantasy sports betting, and we are delighted that Paf chose Scout as their provider of a new fantasy sports platform.”
