Seran Gaming: Transforming the gaming journey into a sporting story.
Mr.Rajiv Gokani – Managing Director
Daily Fantasy Sports is an emerging arena for startups and has turned into a multimillion-dollar industry in just half a decade.
Conventional Fantasy Sports used to last over an entire season wherein a group of users decide to draft a team in January, but wouldn’t know who had won the game until the season got over i.e. in August. All the users had to stick to the same team for the entire season. Fortunately, Daily Fantasy Sports, as the name suggests, enables flexibility and convenience to play on a daily basis, eliminating the long wait of the whole season. Here, users can select players in their teams in the morning and by the end of the day when the game is over, you find out who has won it.
‘Seran Gaming Private Limited’ has entered the Daily Fantasy Sports world with the motive to provide every sports lover with an hands on experience in order to fulfil their desire of being a part of the game. The company has two Fantasy Sports platforms; ‘Cricwars’ and ‘Bigshot’. These two platforms provide an array of Fantasy games that one can play. Mr. Rajiv Gokani, Managing Director – Seran Gaming, says, “From the ultimate crowd puller in cricket to football, our gaming platform is bound to leave you at the edge of your seat. We offer a diverse blend of customer engagement modules that creates a powerful combination bridging the gap between user engagement and user experience.”
What makes Seran Gaming stand out of the crowd?

Views on the transformation of startups in the last decade
