BREAKING NEWS: Milestone Entertainment and Scout Gaming partner to offer B2B Fantasy Sports System and Sports-Related Products in US
- Partnership will distribute Europe’s leading B2B Fantasy Sports Platform in North America
LOS ANGELES, California and STOCKHOLM, Sweden (October 8, 2018) – Milestone Entertainment has entered into a partnership agreement with Scout Gaming Group to introduce Scout’s B2B fantasy sports software platform to the North American market.
Los Angeles-based Milestone Entertainment has been providing original games, entertainment and custom marketing programs to US state and international lotteries since 2000. Milestone’s customers include the lotteries in California, Idaho, Kansas, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Vermont. Scout Gaming Group is a licensed and regulated B2B Fantasy Sports Provider. Scout provides a wide range of software solutions and services for Internet sports games to licensed gaming operators and media companies in 16 countries throughout Europe.
“Fantasy Sports has a long history in the American market with approximately 60 million players and daily fantasy sports (or DFS) is now legal in the majority of jurisdictions in the US. When state operators with a legacy of offering lottery games oversee the regulations, it becomes a natural step to expand their product portfolios into fantasy sports to create new revenue streams. Milestone understands how to create compelling sports and entertainment products and accelerate our growth in the North American market. Our partnership with Milestone will make it fast and easy for lottery operators and media companies to deploy daily fantasy sports at a time when the regulations are changing swiftly,” commented Scout Gaming CEO Andreas Ternström.
The agreement stipulates that Milestone and Scout Gaming will together offer localized versions of Scout Gaming’s successful products from Europe, primarily targeting state lotteries and media companies in the US and Canada.
“We are thrilled to collaborate with Scout Gaming and distribute their best-in-breed B2B sports gaming platform in the US and Canada. Our team at Milestone Entertainment has years of experience with fantasy sports and sports-related products and the timing is right for our customers to expand beyond the existing lottery games, making Scout Gaming’s products a natural fit. We have carefully evaluated suppliers to ensure that we provide our customers with the best products and I am convinced that we have made the right choice”, commented Randall Katz, Milestone Entertainment’s Co-Founder and CEO.
