Through this partnership, Skrmiish will integrate Sportsflare’s Bet-on-Yourself infrastructure, which includes account verification, pricing, risk management, settlement, and match data solutions into their platform to offer PVE skill-based gaming to their users. The collaboration begins with a rollout for Fortnite and Skrmiish plans to deploy Sportsflare’s technology offering on more immensely popular esports titles in the future.
Sportsflare will receive a share of Skrmiish’s gross gaming revenue for bets placed using the Bet-on-Yourself platform on the app.
“We are excited to partner with Skrmiish, the world’s first app-driven community gaming platform that enables users to monetize their gaming experience,” said Max Polaczuk, Chief Technology Officer of Tiidal Gaming. “We are impressed by their application, marketing strategy, and rapid growth, and share a similar vision for what we believe skill-based gaming can become.

Overall, this partnership allows us to expand our product reach to a wider audience of esports bettors and we look forward to commencing the deployment of our technology offering for Skrmiish on popular esports games.”

Partnering with Sportflare is a rare opportunity that puts Skrmiish at the forefront of developing the next generation of skill-based gaming.”
