Stockholm-listed Scout Gaming Group has agreed a deal to supply its daily fantasy sports (DFS) platform to Cherry's ComeOn brand.

The Scout Gaming DFS platform will initially be used to launch a free-to-play game in time for this summer's FIFA World Cup, which begins on June 14th.

This will be followed by integration of payment solutions at a later stage to allow ComeOn to also offer real-money contests.

ComeOn joins a growing roster of operators utilising Scout Gaming's DFS platform, helping to boost liquidity. Other network partners currently include Gofantasy, Fanteam and Paf, with Betsson, BetHard and Nordic Leisure also set to join the network.

"The fact that ComeOn, a leading well-recognized and innovative player, chooses to integrate Scout Gaming's product is a receipt that our product and DFS vertical will continue its establishment in Europe," Scout Gaming chief executive Andreas Ternström said.

ComeOn chief operating officer Heidi Skogster added: "We strive to always be at pole position with our product offering. Scout Gaming's DFS platform is well aligned with that ambition and will be a great complement to ComeOn's existing sports offering."

Shares in Scout Gaming Group AB (STO:SCOUT) were trading up 7.62 per cent at SEK46.60 per share in Stockholm Wednesday morning, having set a new 52-week high of SEK48.60 per share earlier in the day.
