Global Daily Fantasy Sports, a Canada-based B2B Daily Fantasy Sports software provider, has announced its full integration and testing work with Microgame S.P.A. (Microgame). Microgame in turn has obtained the final certification from the Italian gaming authority (“Agenzia delle Dogane e dei Monopoli”or “ADM”) to launch onto the existing Italian network.

Microgame is the premier Gaming Service Provider in Italy. The company holds concessions, licenses and authorisations to provide “turnkey” solutions for the Italian gaming market in compliance with Italian regulations. Microgame serves more than 30 ADM-licensed Operators with over 90 different brands and over 700,000 registered players, generating in aggregate Gross Gaming Turnover of over €2.5 billion euro.

Microgame is the only Service Provider in Italy that provides complete turnkey gaming solutions including game account platforms and interconnection to the regulator’s systems. In addition, Microgame has market-leading content in all game verticals that it offers to all its customers.

A pioneer in multichannel service, Microgame is the “all Italian” B2B service provider with the highest presence on the National level. In fact, its capability to offer products tailored to the needs of the single Operator makes Microgame not just a service provider but also a true strategic partner.

Microgame’s approval launches Global’s two-year exclusive agreement, which was previously announced on February 5, 2018. Microgame is now in the position to deliver Global’s Daily Fantasy Sports product to all their ADM-licensed Operators in Italy.  Microgame joins Global’s previously announced network partners in time for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia as the Company steps up its European presence for the most widely viewed and followed sporting event in the world.

Darcy Krogh CEO of Global Daily Fantasy Sports Inc. comments, “Strategically this is an important relationship for us. Microgame is a top tier B2B provider in the Italian market and brings with it additional new partners to our Italian network. This will assist us greatly in growing the network. In addition the Microgame team has vast experience marketing in a networked environment which will benefit all our network partners.”

Marco Castaldo, Microgame General Manager, states:  “We are really excited to make DFS available to the operators in our network.   With our market-leading liquidity, we intend to work with our customers and with our partners to deliver the tremendous potential of this game for Italian players.”

July, 2018  – Global Daily Fantasy Sports Inc. (“Global” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: DFS), a B2B Daily Fantasy Sports software provider, is pleased to announce its continued expansion in the Italian regulated gaming market following the addition of two new brands, Betaland and Enjoybet which are owned and operated by OIA Services Limited. Both brands have agreed to join the DFS network for the upcoming European football season, which kicks off on the 18th of August. As part of the network of the leading Italian B2B service provider Microgame S.p.A.  who became a customer of Global in February 2018, they will join the Italian network powered by Global.

With the addition of these two brands, the Italian facing DFS network now has exposure to 20% of the Italian facing online sports betting market which last year generated 550M euro in revenue.

Darcy Krogh CEO of Global Daily Fantasy Sports Inc. comments, “We are delighted to welcome the OIA brands to our DFS network through Microgame. Adding an established top tier market player to our network is great for all the participants and assists in driving further interest in our product.”

DraftKings Signs Landmark Deal for Sports Betting in New York

Partners with del Lago Resort & Casino in One of the Top Revenue Markets for Industry

 

July 2018 – DraftKings Inc. and del Lago Resort & Casino announced that they have entered into an agreement to provide a physical sportsbook at the del Lago Resort & Casino located in Waterloo, N.Y. In addition to partnering together on a retail sportsbook, this agreement also enables both partners to create a mobile and online sports wagering option in the Empire State should legislation authorize online sports wagering.

DraftKings is well positioned to capitalize on the New York market through its industry leading technology and more than 10 million customers. The company began work on its sportsbook product a year ago, immediately following the Supreme Court’s decision to take up New Jersey’s challenge to the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act.

“New York is one of the largest revenue opportunities for future sports wagering operators and we are thrilled to partner with del Lago Resort & Casino to offer sports fans a unique and novel sports betting experience, both at a physical sportsbook and on mobile when permitted,” said Jason Robins, CEO and co-founder of DraftKings.

Pending the adoption of a state law authorizing online sports wagering and corresponding regulations, DraftKings plans to leverage its experience in developing popular daily fantasy sports contests to launch a sports betting app along with a web-based platform in the state of New York.

“We see DraftKings as a fantastic and strategic partner in our sportsbook operation at del Lago Resort & Casino, and this deal represents a tremendous move forward for our property in general,” said Brent Stevens, co-chairman of del Lago and CEO of Peninsula Pacific. “Our partnership with DraftKings combines one of the most recognizable brands in sports with the top resort and casino brand in New York and represents an incredibly important moment for gaming in the Upstate region. We look forward to working closely with DraftKings to create a dynamic, engaging and innovative sports betting experience for New Yorkers.”

This is the second sports wagering partnership DraftKings has secured, having announced a similar partnership last month with Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City, N.J., as their licensing partner for online sports betting in that state. DraftKings expects to offer mobile and online sports betting in New Jersey by the start of the NFL season.
