Scout Gaming signs up Hero Gaming for fantasy sports launch26th March 2020 9:05 am GMT
Stockholm-listed B2B provider Scout Gaming Group has signed an agreement to provide its fantasy sports platform to iGaming operator Hero Gaming.
The deal will see Hero Gaming integrate Scout Gaming’s platform across its six B2C brands, which include Casino Heroes, Speedy Bet, and newly launched BOOM Casino.
The agreement also includes the launch of Scout Gaming’s new jackpot product, which will be integrated during the first half of 2020. The deal is expected to have a positive impact on Scout Gaming’s revenue from H2 2020.
“Since its inception, Hero Gaming has been a socially focused operator with strong growth, and their current expansion of sports betting with our products is another step in that direction and is of course very exciting for us,” said Scout Gaming CEO Andreas Ternstrom. “The fact that another innovative operator chooses our products clearly shows that the market is ready for new sport products.”
Hero Gaming sportsbook manager Vegard Rinne said: “We have an overall entertainment focus on our entire product portfolio and work continuously to ensure that we have a modern offering that puts the user experience first. With Scout Gaming, we are adding additional products on that theme, which will strengthen our product range in the sports aspect.
“Scout's sports products have a clear focus on individual player performance and offer our customers the possibility to win large prize pots with a relatively small effort, something we know is requested.”
