Stockholm enterprise recruits free-to-play specialist to improve retention and help capitalise on Q1 all-time high in active customers
12th June, 2019 – SportCaller, the free-to-play (FTP) sports-game specialist, has announced a landmark long-term partnership with Kindred Group.
The new deal sees SportCaller roll out free-to-play games across multiple sporting events and in multiple countries with a strategic approach that has the support of all relevant departments within the Group and ensures a joined-up, scalable FTP model.
After an in-depth market review, supported by a comprehensive series of FTP workshops and a competitive tender process, Kindred selected SportCaller as its preferred partner thanks to its robust and flexible platform which supports Kindred’s array of countries and languages, allowing for a hyper-local approach alongside a seamless integration into Kindred’s core sportsbook product.
SportCaller’s international expertise and pioneering platform has already teed up a wide variety of new football, tennis, racing and basketball games in order to appeal to Kindred’s multiplicity of markets and their diversity of player preferences. Uniquely, the SportCaller platform facilitates game management and reporting at both group and local level.
In a largely homogenised marketplace, running out of ideas and regulatory rope for sign-up offers and bonuses, SportCaller is transforming free-to-play games into a standalone vertical for enhanced recruitment strategy, reactivation and retention through deep engagement and organic gameplay on mass-appeal sporting events.
SportCaller MD Cillian Barry said: “This is a milestone moment in the evolution of our leading FTP platform. Last year’s World Cup provided a step change for improved acquisition and retention across our partners, but this progressive relationship with Kindred has left no stone unturned in how a truly international operation maximises FTP brand-wide.”
Louis Hervik, Head of Sportsbook Marketing at Kindred Group, added: “By taking advantage of SportCaller’s impressive framework we’re expecting the product to become a core part of our offering while also acting as an acquisition gateway for many of our local markets.
“The scalable platform developed by SportCaller allows our local teams to deploy games based on their territorial strategies in addition to catering for global needs. SportCaller’s proven track record, reporting, backend capabilities and 24/7 support are what made them our preferred partner.”
Having pioneered the model of a free-to-play jackpot in 2014, SportCaller has expanded its global footprint in 2019, branching into 22 countries as diverse as Spain, France, Italy, Greece and the U.S., alongside a number of countries in Asia and Africa, with its easy-to-integrate product suite.
SportCaller is the leading free-to-play sporting game provider, whose platform allows fans to connect and compete across a variety of sports. It provides free-to-play and jackpot games for operators and media owners, generating new accounts allied to trackable levels of increased player-activity and loyalty. SportCaller works with clients in UK, Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa and North America, ranking William Hill, GVC, Paddy Power Betfair, MoPlay and Lottoland amongst its expanding client-base.
