The topic and summary of the Game Lecture follows:
"Daily Fantasy Sports: How big data is allowing the creation of a new type of game"
Daily Fantasy Sports are management games that are linked to the reality of real football matches. With a reservoir of experience in the link between sports and stats, Valery Bollier, CEO and co-founder of OulalaGames ltd, a Maltese based company offering a DFS game on European football, will explain how for the first time, thanks to Big Data, this new type of game can deliver a simple yet solid promise to its customers. This promise is that of proving to your peers that you know sports better than they do! Since DFS are monetized, it is also the first bridge between the video gaming industry and the iGaming sector. You will therefore come to discover a new type of Business Model.
