Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Gaming Innovation Group Inc. (GiG), a leader in digital marketing and media within the online gaming sector, today announce the strategic acquisition of Casinomeister, a pioneering online casino advocacy and review platform. Casinomeister has been at the forefront of promoting transparency and fairness in gaming over the last 25 years.

Following the successful integration of AskGamblers and KaFe Rocks, this acquisition further solidifies GiG Media’s commitment to enhancing transparency and improving player services across the online gaming industry, instilling confidence in our values.

Casinomeister will continue to operate under its respected brand within the GiG Media portfolio, preserving its unique voice. By leveraging the synergies between GiG Media and Casinomeister, the business is expected to experience significant growth, similar to the developments seen with AskGamblers after its acquisition. Casinomeister is an authoritative domain, and its addition to the GiG Media portfolio of quality websites will further diversify the Company’s business.

Jonas Warrer, CEO of GiG, says: “Casinomeister’s renowned dedication to fair play and community support perfectly aligns with our recent acquisition of Askgamblers.com. Together, these platforms will enhance our market reach and optimise the complaint resolution services we provide to the community, reinforcing our position at the forefront of player advocacy.

Bryan Baily, founder of Casinomeister, says: “I have dedicated twenty-six years to building this business, and now it’s time to pass the reins to a new, dynamic team who can lead it into the future. This business has been my passion, starting as a hobby website in 1998 and growing into what it is today. I am entrusting this to the most capable team in the industry to continue its mission of advocating for fair play. I have a long history with GiG Media, and I am confident that they will maintain the values and principles that Casinomeister stands for, ensuring a smooth transition and a bright future for the online gaming community.

The transaction is structured as an asset purchase for €3 million. GiG expects to close the transaction in June. The acquisition will have an immediate positive financial impact, expected to increase going forward when fully implemented into GiG Media’s operations.

EveryMatrix has acquired FSB Technology, a leading global full turnkey and specialist sportsbook technology provider in an all-cash deal.

The acquisition will further bolster OddsMatrix, EveryMatrix’s tier-1 sportsbook platform and odds feeds division, generating immediate additional revenues, cross-company synergies and firmly establishes a presence in the UK, Ireland and Africa where FSB has developed strong market share.

Founded in 2007 by Sam Lawrence and David McDowell, FSB is a leading B2B sportsbook technology supplier based in London, offering full end-to-end turnkey solutions including Player Account Management (PAM), sports betting and casino platform solutions.

EveryMatrix will incorporate key FSB features into its offering, including what has been recognised as one of the strongest horse racing products among sportsbook providers.

Customers will further benefit from EveryMatrix’s superior modular products including casino, games and aggregation, payments, player account management, managed services or affiliate management and data tracking.

Once migrated to OddsMatrix, they will gain access to proven, tier-1 sportsbook and odds feeds products, as well as EveryMatrix’s technology, development and resource pipeline, decades of industry expertise within its 1,000 employee strong workforce across 13 locations worldwide and a global network of partners.

OddsMatrix has gone from strength-to-strength launching several large-scale digital projects for tier-1 brands across Europe including Bet-at-home and the Hungarian national lottery company’s (SZRT) online brand TippmixPro.

OddsMatrix achieved its best year in 2023, setting record growth, profitability and a record number of bets for tier-1 customers. It experienced a 75% Year-on-Year (YoY) rise in total bets, skyrocketing profitability up 90% while also driving live events up by a third (31%) to more than 1.8 million events for the year. With the FSB deal, this strong growth is set to continue.

Ebbe Groes, Group CEO of EveryMatrix, said: “I’m delighted to announce our purchase of FSB Technology and I’m proud of the EveryMatrix team that has been involved in making this deal happen so effortlessly.

“This is our most ambitious acquisition to date, by value, size, and complexity. There was a huge amount of internal teamwork behind the scenes to ensure this process was managed efficiently which is a great credit to everyone. Our ability to quickly transact and get this over the line so smoothly has been very impressive.

“This transaction facilitates our long-term growth strategy of entering and growing within a greater number of regulated markets, including the UK, Ireland and Africa, where many FSB clients operate. It also allows us to accelerate this process, diversify our customer and revenue profiles, while simultaneously migrating customers to a stronger, high performing product proven to deliver exceptional results.”

Adam Smith, CEO of FSB Technology, said: “FSB has achieved a lot over the last 18-20 months including expansion into new markets and launching innovative propositions. Joining together with EveryMatrix represents another major milestone for FSB. We are delighted and excited by the new opportunities this deal could create, through the sharing of our unique capabilities as well as accelerating the growth of FSB’s existing partners.”

  • Acquisition of PickGuru creates a new division, Dizplai Gaming
  • New division to strengthen Dizplai’s end-to-end offering with new level of services to Dizplai clients

Dizplai, a leading media experience company, trusted by global sports rights holders, brands, betting companies and broadcasters to transform passive audiences into engaged communities, has today announced the 100% acquisition of PickGuru, the most customer-centric, free to play, gaming platform on the market.

PickGuru provides smart solutions that drive audience and commercial objectives for today’s multi-channel bookmakers, publishers and rights holders. PickGuru’s solutions enable partners to quickly and easily create predictor and fantasy games for their platforms, and drive both deeper engagement and commercialisation opportunities.

The acquisition brings together two innovators in the fan engagement space, creating the new division, Dizplai Gaming. This division will expand Dizplai’s end-to-end offering and drive even greater experiences for fans across both first and second screens.

“We fundamentally believe that when audiences are compelled, through a gamified approach, to interact, it makes content more engaging, more commercially valuable, and enables it to grow and, ultimately, retain audiences,” said Ed Abis, CEO Dizplai. “The acquisition of Pickguru as a business, and the team of people who will join Dizplai, will enable us to supercharge that approach, offering a whole different level of services to our clients, thus driving our overarching strategy.”

Paul Watkins, PickGuru: “Dizplai and Pickguru have a collective vision, and this acquisition enables us to accelerate product developments that enables us to build on the Dizplai mantra of “Gamifying the Game”. Fans want to be part of the action and love predicting outcomes, collectively we can deliver on this. Watch this space!”

Paul Cobley, PickGuru: “The Pickguru platform was built on the principle of flexibility. We are committed to enabling our partners to quickly and easily create gamified experiences for their platforms that drive both deeper engagement and commercialisation opportunities. This is an extremely exciting time for us.”

Following the acquisition of PickGuru, Dizplai announced two new senior roles, in line with the growth of the business, with Paul Watkins as Chief Financial Officer and Paul Cobley as Director of Gaming.

Increasingly considered as the ultimate fan solution for live sports owners and creators, Dizplai fuses tech, creative and content experiences to create engaged communities for sports brands and organisations. Every day, millions of sports fans tune in to live broadcasts, which have been enhanced using the Dizplai platform, from companies as diverse as Sky Sports, TNT Sports, Manchester City, Liverpool FC, SuperTri, William Hill and The United Stand.

2024 has been a big year for Dizplai:

  • Launched Dizplai Creative, a new creative agency focused on driving greater audience engagement and brand value through content innovation and technology
  • Announced by Comcast as one of the ten startups chosen for the 2024 Comcast NBCUniversal SportsTech Accelerator program, powered by Boomtown.
  • Winner of the Best Technology for Match Day Operations and Experience award at the 2024 Sports Technology Awards
