Esports data and statistics provider PandaScore has formed a partnership with esports bookmaker LOOT.BET to become its esports data and odds feed provider.
The partnership will see PandaScore share its full esports feed with LOOT.BET, including in-game statistical data for major esports titles, according to a release.
Included in PandaScore’s data feed will be in-game statistics for prominent competitive gaming titles such as League of Legends, DOTA 2, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Call of Duty, Rocket League, Overwatch, PUBG, FIFA, Valorant, and King of Glory.
The collaboration will see LOOT.BET expand the scale and scope of the odds and markets it offers to players, while also guaranteeing a high degree of in-play market uptime, according to the release.
Flavien Guillocheau, PandaScore CEO, commented: “LOOT.BET has emerged as one of the leading esports betting operators in markets around the world, so we are delighted to have entered into an agreement to provide it with our state-of-the-art data and odds feed.
“This will enable LOOT.BET to offer more odds and markets to its players than ever before, which in turn will allow it to scale and drive significant growth following its acquisition by Intema. This includes the most in-depth in-play markets available across key esports titles.”
LOOT.BET will be supported by PandaScore’s in-house esports trading team, which will price over 116 pre-match and +125 in-play markets. According to the release, this will be safeguarded by the use of an Artificial Intelligence-guided automated system.
LOOT.BET CEO Peter Zhalov also commented on the partnership: “In PandaScore we have a data and odds provider that is at the cutting-edge of the industry, providing a powerful data and odds feed that will allow us to deliver a superior experience to our players as we continue to expand at pace.
“Its in-play capabilities are standout; this is a challenging market to offer in the esports arena, but PandaScore has found a way to make it work while also delivering high levels of uptime. This is a great partnership for us and one that will undoubtedly be a huge success.”
The partnership comes after LOOT.BET signed a letter of intent with Intema, an emerging esports and iGaming company, to acquire the betting company for approximately $17.8 million (~£12.8m).
Esports Insider says: Betting and data share an intrinsic relationship, so partnerships between betting companies and esports data providers are naturally becoming more and more common. It is no surprise to see LOOT.BET, which is in the midst of a large-scale acquisition, partnering with one of the big names in the esports data landscape.
