Fantasy Sports Interactive (FSI) has signed a new partnership with Intralot US, a subsidiary of gaming provider Intralot Group.
Under the terms of the agreement, FSI will enhance Intralot’s offerings with FSI’s Fixed-Odds-Fantasy (FOF) Suite and its Fantasy Sportsbook markets. Its suite features the only Fantasy Team-based betting market, the Sportsbook Manager, and two more player-based Performance Betting markets, including Performance Props, an Under/Over performance-based, single-player market and Man2Man, a prediction-based market pitting two all-star athletes against each other.
All FOF markets are odds-based. The FSI Team compiles the odds in-house utilizing big data, mathematical and statistical models on Sports Performance and business intelligence. The company is also able to provide player-based FOF markets via a direct Odds feed, or the entire suite via iFrame.
FSI’s CEO, Dennis Tsalikis said: “A partnership with Intralot USA is truly a company milestone, and we are proud on multiple levels; it signals FSI’s expansion to the US market in a formidable way, with a top-tier partner that allows us to touch the fresh American betting audience and help them enjoy the game in an exciting and user-friendly environment. Moreover, it introduces our collaboration with a colossus of the global gaming and business world, INTRALOT Group. We are honoured to welcome Intralot US as partners and we have the utmost confidence in our collaboration.”
“The FSI Team is excited to enter the burgeoning American betting market, and we look forward to offering a #DFSportsbook Innovation based on the thrill and performance value of fantasy sports that American players know and love,” he added.
