Stockholm-listed B2B fantasy sports provider Scout Gaming Group has agreed a deal to launch a daily fantasy sports (DFS) platform for betting operator 1XBet.

Scout Gaming will provide Curacao-licensed 1XBet with a new DFS platform which is scheduled to go live alongside the operator’s existing product offering ahead of this summer’s FIFA World Cup in Russia.

1XBet plans to join Scout Gaming's global liquidity network, which includes operators such as Nordic Leisure, ComeOn, Starpick, Gofantasy, with Betsson and Bethard also poised to join the network.

"1XBet is a fast-growing international gaming operator with presence in many parts of the world," said Scout Gaming chief executive Andreas Ternström. "The fact that they have chosen our product for their DFS offering, clearly shows that we have the market leading product.

"In conjunction with the launch of 1XBet, Scout Gaming will go live in several new geographic markets."

Shares in Scout Gaming Group AB (STO:SCOUT) were trading up 2.30 per cent at SEK40.00 per share in Stockholm Monday morning.
