GoodGamer will launch with cricket and CS:GO and add football, Valorant, Dota 2, a quiz game and Indian Rummy before 2021. GoodGamer is the first to offer several other features, including prop fantasy contests, player injury reports, player injury alerts, an AI-based lineup optimizer, and private contests, where the administrators can earn a commission for creating and managing the contests.
In addition to the official launch, GoodGamer has signed an advertising agreement with Disney + Hotstar, the official live streaming platform for all premium sports in India, including Cricket. GoodGamer will be present as an advertiser on the biggest T20 League tournament that begins in September in UAE.
“The demographics in India couldn’t be better aligned with the unique sports and esports focus of our Daily Fantasy app,” said GoodGamer CEO Charles Creighton.
“We have been planning to launch in the region for some time but doing so just in time for this tournament is the icing on the cake for us. With all eyes on cricket through to the final match in November, our unique features will bring an attractive alternative to Indian DFS fans – fans we can keep engaged throughout the year with our year-round calendar of esports and traditional sports contests, quiz games, and more,” he added
GoodGamer is offering a deposit bonus for every deposit a player makes to enter a DFS contest. Users can earn additional money by signing up for their refer-a-friend program. The program allows a user to earn up to ?100 cash bonus for each referral and a 5% cash bonus on a friend’s deposit up to a ?1000 cash bonus. The more friends a player refers to play in a real money contest, the larger bonus. Users may register after they download the app on GoodGamer.in.
Umesh Yadav and Kuldeep Yadav as Brand Influencers
GoodGamer has signed international bowler’s, Umesh Yadav and Kuldeep Yadav as the company’s brand influencers for the festive season to mark the return of cricket. Umesh Yadav is the highest wicket-taker for India in the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup.
“India and cricket represent an incredible opportunity for GoodGamer. With a cricket fan base reaching 900 million users, the return of franchise cricket on Disney + Hotstar is the perfect place and time for launching our app.
He also said that the app is primed to gain access to India’s 350 million mobile gamers with the launch of CS:GO in the fall.
From Vancouver to Bengaluru
Good Gamer Corp. is a fantasy gaming and technology company located in Vancouver, British Columbia. The app is a skilled based platform that allows users to enter daily fantasy contests to win real prize money. Its wholly-owned subsidiary, Good Gamer India Private Limited is located in Bengaluru to manage operations, marketing and customer service led by former Vancouverite Ravi Nagarajachar, Vice President of Operations.
“Having lived in Vancouver, Canada, and now back in my native Bangalore, it’s exciting for me to be working with the team at GoodGamer to bring this app to Indian sports and Esports fans,” said Nagarajachar.
“We’ve developed a fantastic relationship with leading esports tournament organizers and marketing groups such as Skyesports of Chennai, one of the top esports tournament organizers and casters in India. Skyesports will be leveraging their million+ followers, influencer contacts, and its 50 million users reach on YouTube to give us that rocket fuel for our launch here. So many cricket fans also love esports, this is a perfect fit that makes sense,” he added.
