Nowadays, it feels that everything’s on a standstill. But the deal between the Drone Racing League and FanDuel proves that once again, the online gambling industry never stops. Indeed, recently the Flutter Entertainment owned company partnered-up with the Drone Racing League (DRL) for the 2020 DRL Tryout Finals.
To sum up, thanks to this deal FanDuel can access DRL SIM data. As well as this, they could also access and use the team and league branding for the fantasy contest for the “player to pilot eSport tournament” that took place at the beginning of April.
All and all, the virtual drone tournament saw competitors go head to head on the DRL simulator. This simulator gives players a true to life experience via stream. The winner was then awarded a professional eSport contract which allowed them to take part in the 2020 Allianz World Championship Season.
Patrons always comes first on FanDuel
Despite everything that’s happening in New Jersey these days, President, Kip Levin of FanDuel, remains committed to their fans. According to him, the company is still developing new and exciting games besides the thrilling partnership with DRL.
All and all, the new games in development could be game-changer for the industry. As you know, this hasn’t been a great time for many involved in sports betting. But eSport gives players the chance to get involved with online action from the safety of their own home. Plus, it also provides a good fall back plan for operators too.
Until recently, operators mostly saw promises in eSport because of LOL, Call of Duty and Dota2. But the deal at hand shows just how promising the vertical is. And so does Flutter’s share increase by 1.14%. Flutter is always on the lookout for the next big thing. Maybe they found it already, who knows?
