New game release: Fantasy Matchup!

Scout Gaming Group recently launched a brand new fantasy product for their client Starpick in India.

On April 5, StarPick, India’s leading fantasy sports platform introduced the innovative and easy to play Fantasy Matchup, the first of its kind head-to-head duel between 2 players in India. With this, StarPick also becomes Scout Gaming Group’s first operator globally to introduce this new, innovative and proprietary game.

The Fantasy Matchup format is extremely exciting, very easy to understand and play where just the users’ skills help them win instead of competing against thousands of others. There are pre-set duels between players of a team for the particular day. In order to participate in the Fantasy Matchup, a user needs to select a minimum of 4 duels and up to a maximum of 10 duels.

In the Fantasy Matchup game, the fantasy points accumulated in the duel will be based on the player’s actual performance in the real game. The player with the higher score at the end of the game wins the duel. In order to win the Fantasy Matchup, all the duels selected by the user should be correct.

Trigam Mukherjee, Co-founder and CEO of StarPick India said, “At StarPick, it is our constant endeavour to disrupt and redefine fantasy gaming in India as well as keeping the users engaged using superior technology and innovation. Fantasy Matchup is one such radical and an innovative game we have introduced on our platform. Globally this concept is very new and it is now available to our users in India through StarPick. In fact, we are Scout Gaming Group’s first client to launch Fantasy Matchup. We believe our users will love this new format and test their skills and knowledge to get rewarded financially. My message to the users is ‘keep skilling it’.”

“StarPick is leading the innovation in the Indian Fantasy Sports market and we are of course delighted that they are the first operator to launch the Scout Gaming Group match-up game, based on our in-house-proprietary expected fantasy points. We are also planning to launch new innovative fantasy related games during the coming year,” comments Scout Gaming Group’s CEO, Andreas Ternstrom.

Scout Gaming increases distribution capacity and product offering

Scout Gaming has entered into two agreements further expanding the distribution network of Scout’s products.

The two agreements are with Inplaynet and Ultraplay, both of which are platform and content suppliers. The agreements stipulate distribution of Scout Gaming’s game platform products. In addition to the Scout Daily Fantasy Sports platform, Inplaynet aims to be the first to distribute Scout’s newly launched Fantasy Matchup game.

“We continue to expand our distribution network and at the same time add new products. The Fantasy Matchup game was recently beta launched on the Indian market and is expected to become part of our standard offering. The game features duels between players and the objective is to predict who will be the best player by gaining the most fantasy points according to our fantasy points ruleset. We are continuously strengthening our Fantasy offering by the release of additional products,” comments Scout Gaming’s CEO, Andreas Ternström.

Scout Gaming has established the leading global B2B network for Fantasy Sports and continues to expand. Scout Gaming’s products are expected to be integrated on both platforms no later than the third quarter of this year.
