Toronto-listed Global Daily Fantasy Sports has signed an exclusive two-year agreement to supply its daily fantasy sports (DFS) product to Italian platform provider Microgame.

The agreement provides Microgame's network of 34 poker and bingo clients, which operate more than 90 brands across Italy, with access to Global's DFS platform. They will join existing network partners Lottomatica and Sisal.

Work to integrate the product with the Microgame platform is already underway, with a network roll out expected before the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

"We are thrilled to add Microgame to our growing network in Italy,” said Global Daily Fantasy Sports CEO Darcy Krogh. “Microgame is Italy's leading B2B gaming service provider and supplies content to many notable gaming brands in the Italian market.

“This single integration gives all their brands access to our unique daily fantasy product and network and we're excited to have them join. We are committed to growing our presence in this key market, and our partnership with Microgame is a very positive step for Global in pursuing this goal."

Microgame general manager Marco Castaldo commented: "We are very excited to launch daily fantasy sports with Global. Microgame already manages the leading poker and bingo networks in Italy, and we expect the excellent Global games and our combined liquidity to drive growth in this very promising but currently underdeveloped vertical."

Shares in Global Daily Fantasy Sports Inc (CVE:GDFS) closed in Toronto Monday up 11.48 per cent at CAD$0.34 per share.
