Stockholm-based Scout Gaming Group has agreed to deliver a new daily fantasy sports platform for the Betsson Group.

The partnership provides Betsson with full access to Scout Gaming's DFS platform, enabling the operator to offer a complete solution across all its iGaming brands.

The platform is expected to be fully integrated into Betsson's product offering in 2018.

"I'm delighted that Betsson Group, one of Europe's leading online operators, has chosen Scout Gaming as their supplier," said Scout Gaming CEO Andreas Ternström. "The agreement confirms that daily fantasy sports is rapidly gaining ground and is expected to be the next online gaming growth vertical."

Betsson Group's director of gaming Andy Broughton Braithwaite said that the company had evaluated how to extend its sports offering and in particular the possibilities related to DFS.

"Broadening our target audience as well as increasing loyalty among existing players are two key demands we can address with DFS," he said. "Scout Gaming not only offers a wide selection of sports but is also able to support local and niche events, which is important to us.
"Scout also offer the largest European liquidity network, which was an important consideration in our selection process."

Scout Gaming also provides its services to the likes of Paf, Bethard Group, Norsk Tipping and Bonnier Broadcasting, and is expected to start trading on the Nasdaq First North stock exchange early next month.

Shares in Betsson AB (STO:BETS_B) were trading at SEK60.00 per share in Stockholm earlier Friday.
