Scout Reveals Massive Global DFS Prize Pool
July 28, 2020
The stunning €1 million in prize money will be divided as follows: €200,000 in 1st-place prize money, along with a total of 1,250 cash prizes additionally on offer. Scout’s seasonal game bears a close resemblance with the official Fantasy Premier League game when considering things such as budget, the number of players competing for prize money, the majority of the scoring rules, etc.
Similar to US Fantasy Premier League, prizes furthermore include a monthly prize for best manager of the month, and also prizes for best manager of weekly games.
A First For Scout Gaming
This will be the first time that Scout Gaming offers prize money of this nature on a global scale, says CPO and co-founder Andreas Sundal. Offering a truly life-changing sum in prize money to a worldwide audience, said Sundal, is a source of immense pleasures to everyone at Scout Gaming.
Premier League is according to Sundal considered the Number 1 fantasy game outside of the US. The game each year attracts anywhere between 6 million and 7 million participants. What’s more, the game has witnessed incredible growth over the course of recent years – which is something Sundal is obviously enormously proud of having helped achieve.
And it’s exactly this incredible success that has now enabled the provider to offer to players a truly record-smashing some in prize money.
In addition to Scout’s Premier League offering, the provider also offers a wide range of markets on everything from NBA-league basketball to NHL hockey to MLB baseball and UFC Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). Other top products include Grand Slam tennis, soccer (football), NFL football, and International Premier League cricket.
The legalisation of betting on amateur and professional sports, signed into force half-way into 2018, has according to Sundal not had too much of an impact on fantasy sports betting. DFS (Daily Fantasy Sports) is according to the chief product officer an integral part of sports betting entertainment and as such, a very essential item on the American sports betting menu.
Outside of the United States, the group is supported by a wealth of esteemed global operators – something Sundal said the Scout team is exceptionally thankful for. Scout Gaming is a trusted provider to a range of international operators, including Greece’s Stoiximan and Norway’s state operated Norsk Tipping.
About Daily Fantasy Sports
Daily Fantasy Sports products are more popular now than ever before – which is obviously in part due to a global hiatus on live sports events. Many players actually prefer DFS to betting on traditional sports for the reason that unlike traditional sports games that are played over the course of entire seasons, DFS-seasons are concluded in a matter of days – sometimes even hours.
Not unlike traditional Fantasy Sports games, betting on DFS-games involves building a team from an available pool of pro-athletes and scoring points based on the performance of those athletes over a set (particularly short) period of time.
Players get to place bets as well as earn money by competing against other players for the honour of top DFS bettor. Getting it right requires a great deal of knowledge and skill and successful players are typically constantly up to date with what’s happening in the world of traditional live sports.
