With DFS continuing to be such a huge topic in igaming, we take a closer look at one of the most anticipated sessions from the AAC conference schedule. The “Daily Fantasy Sports affiliation: An unexploited opportunity” session takes place on Wednesday 8th June at 12:00 in conference room 1.
With the arrival of Draftkings and Fanduel into Europe to compete with the likes of Mondogoal, Oulala and Sportego, Daily Fantasy Sports has well and truly landed on the continent. While there are still question marks over whether DFS can be succesful in countries with legalised sports betting, one things is for sure is that it can no longer be ignored.
This panel session will discuss whether DFS really is the ”next big thing” for affiliates as well as discussing where the industry is heading in light of uncertainty in the US and direct competition from sports betting in the international market.
We are very pleased to announce that we will have Paul Archer, International Affiliate Manager at DraftKings speaking on this panel. Paul will provide a unique insight into Daily Fantasy Sports giant DraftKings experiences in the US since its launch in 2012 and its plans for European domination during Euro 2016 and over the next 12 months.
Paul will be joined by Valery Bollier; Valery is the co-founder and CEO of OulalaGames, a revolutionary fantasy football game which was launched three years ago. He has over eleven years of experience in the iGaming industry and is a regular speaker at industry conferences and seminars.
After OulalaGames well timed partnership with Leicester City FC at the beginning of the 2015/16 Premier League season, we think it is only fair to ask Valery to check his crystal ball again and let us know how DFS will evolve in the next year and how best affiliates can take advantage.
We will soon be announcing who will join Valery and Paul on our “Daily Fantasy Sports affiliation: An unexploited opportunity” panel session. So make sure you keep an eye out for more information on one of the most exciting sessions taking place at the Amsterdam Affiliate Conference 2016.

Matching Visions Ltd and Betting Gods Ltd. form strategic partnership
Matching Visions Ltd. has acquired a thirty percent share in Betting Gods Ltd. in a synergy-fuelled bid to accelerate the growth and expansion of the already well-established UK betting advice service.
This week has seen a strategic partnership of great vision form in the iGaming industry. Ahead of their official full relocation to Malta, the rapidly expanding UK based Betting Gods Ltd has carved out a good reputation among the online sports betting community for its in-depth betting advice and professional tipster services, ranking 2nd of all betting companies on Trustpilot worldwide. This betting advice powerhouse is now teaming up with Matching Visions Ltd, a Malta based affiliate network, to further accelerate the growth and utilize the strengths within the Betting Gods brand.
That means fans of a vast range of sports such as horse racing, football, boxing, golf and tennis who have a membership with Betting Gods will now be able to benefit from some amazing deals and offers to enhance their betting experience to a new level.
The new tie-up promises to demonstrate a lot of natural synergy between Betting Gods and Matching Visions. Betting Gods founder and Director, Darren Moore, said: “We’ve been working closer and closer with the team at Matching Visions throughout 2017, and their group of brands and companies are all well respected within betting and iGaming circles. We’re delighted to announce this partnership that will see both companies not only continue to grow their own brands but enhance each other’s offerings and services for the benefit of partners, clients and punters initially within the UK and other English speaking markets”.
Betting Gods currently offer a comparison service on its professional tipster network, which allows visitors to weigh up the winnings of the various experts who provide advice on the site. Monthly profit, strike rate, return on investment, winning streaks and losing streaks can all be looked at, giving punters the best information upon which to base their decision on which tipster to side with.
“We are so thrilled to step in as formal partners in Betting Gods Ltd.”, said Dennis Dyhr-Hansen, Managing Director at Matching Visions, and continued: “At Matching Visions we have been looking for more opportunities within the betting vertical of the industry and Betting Gods is the perfect match for us. They have a significant foothold in their market niche, they are strong in the UK where we are actively seeking acquisitions and we are the perfect match for them to increase product offering and expand to new markets”.
Mikael Strunge, Matching Visions Board Member said “We are delighted to become a part of Betting Gods Ltd. and we are confident that this is a great match up. Betting Gods is extremely good at what they do and will be able to grow considerably by applying the affiliate trade that MatchingVisions can deliver. We have seen the affiliate market become more and more consolidated throughout the last few years and Betting Gods has the potential to become an affiliate powerhouse. The next step for Betting Gods has arrived and we are thrilled to come along for the ride“.
It is the start of exciting times as two respected iGaming companies join forces – and what a time in the sporting calendar to do so! While the domestic football season is done and dusted, there are still some crucial World Cup qualification games to look forward to. Meanwhile, in the boxing world, there are a huge number of exciting matches for fight fans to get their teeth into. What’s more, we even have a fantastic match-up between UFC star Conor McGregor and all time boxing great Floyd Mayweather on our hands before the end of the year. In Golf, major contests which are to be contested, and with Wimbledon approaching the timing couldn’t be better for this announcement just days before Amsterdam Affiliate Conference.
