Scout Gaming has developed a simple and mobile-optimized fantasy game for the norwegian media & broadcasting company TV 2 to enhance the sports entertainment for the viewers of their Norwegian Eliteserien football broadcasts. The game is playable on duellen.tv2.no.
Upon participation, users get 1000 virtual coins for free, which TV 2 chose to call “Jesper Jokers”, after one of the hosts of their football broadcasts. Each contest is 100 coins to participate in, and users win coins when all of their fantasy duel predictions are correct. Participants have to pick the winners of a minimum of 3, max 5 fantasy duels, based on Scout Gamings’ fantasy scoring system.
With a high focus on mobile experience and simplicity, users can easily participate, while keeping the skills, excitement and engagement of fantasy sports. Weekly, monthly and yearly leaderboards keep track of the best performing participants.
TV2 will integrate the game into their broadcasts, web and social media. The broadcaster has a wide range of rights for different sports and leagues.
Andreas Sundal, Chief Product Officer at Scout Gaming, said: “We are very proud to develop this simple and innovative fantasy game in close collaboration with TV2. Our product has been designed to deliver a fun and thrilling player experience to their audience that also takes engagement with the sport and the Norwegian Eliteserien to a new level. The flexibility in our proprietary platform allows us to modify and focus even more on the mobile experience, simplicity, and low threshold for users to participate, while keeping the skills, excitement and engagement.
“This forms part of wider efforts to raise awareness of the benefits of different fantasy sports games for media companies all over the globe.”
