Fantasy sports operator StarPick announced that it has introduced an innovative and easy to play head-to-head game on its platform called ‘Fantasy MatchUp’.
The platform, which uses white label software from Norwegian B2B provider Scout Gaming has stated that the new real money game format is easy to understand and enables two users’ to play and win against one another instead of competing against thousands of others.
The format entails users to predict a minimum of four and maximum of ten pre-set duels (that is predict which one among two players playing in a given match would get higher points). In order to participate in the Fantasy Matchup, a user needs to select a minimum of four duels and up to a maximum of ten duels. Apart from StarPick, this new format will soon also be live on other Indian fantasy sports platforms having a software solution from Scout Gaming, including India Bet backed fantasy gaming portal Scoring11.
Commenting on the development, Trigam Mukherjee, 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 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,” added Scout Gaming Group’s CEO, Andreas Ternstrom.
StarPick also announced that it has started several other innovative formats of fantasy gaming including flexi five (choosing only five players instead of eleven); cricket heroes (free to play game where user needs to select only three players in a game) and season long fantasy games.
