Scout Gaming secures deal with Asian tier 1 operator Dafabet

Fantasy Sports

Scout Gaming has signed a license agreement with Dafabet giving them access to Scout Gaming’s Fantasy Sports and pool betting platform. Dafabet is a leading Asian online gaming operator offering sports betting, online casino, poker and games.

Dafabet was founded in 2004 and operates out of the Philippines where they are licensed and regulated. Dafabet has over 1,000 employees and is a household name in the Asian region.

“We are proud that Dafabet selected us as their fantasy sports partner. Dafabet is considered to be one of the largest private operators in Asia and is highly respected within the industry on a global basis. It is clearly very satisfying to sign up another tier 1 operator.” says Scout Gaming CEO Andreas Ternström.

Launch is expected during the first half of 2019. Dafabet is expected to be included in Scout Gaming’s global liquidity network.

“We have a history of successful growth across multiple product verticals and look forward to be able to introduce Fantasy Sports to our player base. Fantasy Sports holds great potential and complements our existing portfolio perfectly. Scout has been very professional and came out as the clear leader in our competitor analysis.”, commented Dafabet’s Marketing Director Nikos Diakoumopoulos.

Scout Gaming’s long-term revenue is dependent on how many of Dafabet’s customers playing Scout Gaming games, and to what extent these players will use the products. In addition, Scout Gaming’s size of network is significant for attractiveness of the game in the long run. A larger network is expected to offer larger prize pools and thus increase the attractiveness of the game to consumers.
