Montreal, 7 March 2018 – Paysafe, a leading global payments provider, will be cheering on the No. 19 Dale Coyne Racing Paysafe Honda as it speeds through the streets of St. Petersburg this weekend. The Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg event marks the first race of the season in the 2018 Verizon IndyCar Series for which Paysafe recently announced its sponsorship. In 2017, Paysafe sponsored a single race in the series, the Go Pro Grand Prix of Sonoma, and the new deal marks its commitment to both Indy car motor sports and the growth of its brand in North America.

Having driven innovation in payments since 1996, with a focus on keeping the payments process safe, secure and frictionless, Paysafe knows success is predicated on agility in fast paced environments, and the ability to leverage the latest technologies. This exciting sponsorship, which is a manifestation of these values and beliefs, is designed to heighten Paysafe’s brand awareness in North America where it has identified significant growth opportunities.

As part of its sponsorship with Dale Coyne Racing, two up and coming drivers will also be representing the Paysafe brand on the track: young Canadian driver, Zach Claman De Melo (19) and Brazilian teammate, Pietro Fittipaldi (21), grandson of former motor racing legend, Emerson Fittipaldi.

“Paysafe is proud to partner with Dale Coyne Racing and sponsor up and coming star drivers, Zach Claman De Melo and Pietro Fittipaldi,” said Oscar Nieboer, Chief Marketing Officer, Paysafe. “The entire team at Paysafe will be rooting for them as they take turns to pilot the No. 19 Paysafe Honda in what is probably one of the most exciting motor sports events in the world. Special good wishes go to Zach who will be taking the wheel this weekend.”

“The opportunity to drive throughout the entire series is an amazing opportunity and I’m truly grateful to my patron, Paysafe, for making my dream come true,” said Zach Claman De Melo, Indy car driver for Dale Coyne Racing. “I couldn’t have done it without them and I am extremely proud to have the Paysafe logo on my uniform and car. I look forward to bringing them the success they deserve.”

“I can’t wait to get behind the wheel of the No. 19 Paysafe car and take a few checkered flags for Dale Coyne Racing and my fans this season,” said Pietro Fittipaldi, Indy car driver for Dale Coyne Racing.

The 2018 Verizon IndyCar Series features 17 races, including the legendary Indianapolis 500 on May 29 and ending with the GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma in California. The two drivers will take turns piloting the Paysafe car throughout the season:

  • March 11: Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg – Zach Claman De Melo

About Dale Coyne Racing

Dale Coyne Racing (DCR) is a Verizon IndyCar Series team based in Plainfield, IL, about 40 miles southwest of downtown Chicago. The team has participated in every season of the INDYCAR/Champ Car World Series since 1984. DCR earned its fifth IndyCar win with a victory at the season opening race in St. Petersburg, FL in 2017 with driver Sebastien Bourdais and also obtained its best Indianapolis 500 finish in 2017 with a third place by top finishing rookie, Ed Jones. Team Owner Dale Coyne is a true racer with a long history in racing. As an Indy car driver for five years, and a team owner since 1984, he has more than 30 years of experience in open-wheel racing and is known for taking on young drivers and mentoring them in the early stages of their careers. Coyne is a Midwestern entrepreneur who designed and built Route 66 Raceway in Joliet, IL. He and Tony George, along with International Speedway Corporation (ISC), expanded the facility by forming a partnership and building Chicagoland Speedway. Coyne served as president of the facility through its construction and opening season, and served on its management committee until its eventual buyout by ISC in 2007. Coyne has several other investments, including being the largest Sonny’s BBQ franchisee in the country.

About Zachary Claman De Melo

Zach began his campaign to reach the highest tiers of motorsports in 2006 (aged 8), when he was discovered by a group of professional drivers at the local go-karting track, and at age 12, Zach seized his first Canadian National Karting Championship. By 2015 (aged 16), Zach claimed two additional Canadian National Championships and made the jump to open-wheel racing in Europe’s Formula 3 MSV Cup, where he posted an undefeated record while only competing part-time. In 2016 (aged 17), Zach landed his first full-time open-wheel drive in the Verizon IndyCar Series’ official feeder series, called Indy Lights, with the 2015 defending champions, Juncos Racing.

In 2017, Zach’s results drew the attention of Carlin Motorsports, the 2016 defending champions. Upon signing with Carlin for his sophomore season in Indy Lights, Zach earned his first Indy Lights race win, set 3 fastest laps, and delivered seven top 5 and thirteen top 10 finishes, and in just his second year in open-wheel racing, Zach exceeded the pace of his Indy Lights competitors with up to triple his experience.

In 2017, with Paysafe’s backing, Zach made his debut in Indy car racing by competing in the Sonoma race in September.  At 19, he is one of the youngest drivers ever to have competed in the series.

About Pietro Fittipaldi

Grandson of the two-time Formula 1 World Champion and double Indy 500 winner, Emerson Fittipaldi, the Miami-born Brazilian quickly rose through the American karting ranks to become one of the brightest talents in junior racing. His driving skills soon took him to stock car racing, and at just 15 years old he became the first Latin American NASCAR champion in the Limited Late Model category.

The lure of continuing the Fittipaldi legacy in open-wheel racing inevitably took him to the UK in 2013 – an intensely competitive arena for honing a driver’s skills and a tried and tested route into Formula 1. Promising debut stints in the single-seater 2013 Formula Renault BARC and BRDC F4 Championships – including podiums and a race win – were made more impressive given the seamless transition from racing stock cars since 2010.

In 2014, Pietro Fittipaldi dominated the British Formula Renault Protyre championship and was named 2014 champion with the Silverstone final race still to go. Pietro also raced in the Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup and tested in Formula Renault World Series 3.5.

In 2015, Pietro competed in the FIA European Formula 3, where he secured three rookie podiums, and raced in the MRF Challenge from October 2015 to January 2016, where he claimed the championship with one race to spare.

In 2017, Pietro won the World Series 3.5 V8 Championship, as well as broke the World Series Championship record for most pole positions with 10, a record that was previously tied between Daniel Ricciardo (Red Bull F1) and Kevin Magnussen (Haas F1) who both scored 8 poles in one season.

Embark on a Babylonian journey in Law of Gilgamesh by Elysium Studios



Reading Time: 2 minutes

Having already raised the bar in terms of what players can expect from an online casino game, this month Elysium Studios – Driven by Swintt are back with an almighty bang for what promises to be one of their most ambitious slot adventures to date in Law of Gilgamesh.

Taking players on a majestic journey through ancient Mesopotamia, Law of Gilgamesh is an exciting cluster pays slot that boasts cascading reels and maximum wins of up to 10,188.50 x the bet. Unique symbols to appear in the game include relics from the Sumerian kingdom like stone lions, rams and bulls plus the goddess Ishtar, the warrior Enkidu and the fabled king Gilgamesh himself.

Each of these last three legendary figures has the power to rain down special modifiers on the reels if enough matching symbols are collected to trigger their unique ability. Gilgamesh will add wilds to random reel positions, Enkidu will slash and remove a huge “X” of symbols and Ishtar will destroy all low value symbols and replace them with high value ones, each starting a new re-spin.

Should players be fortunate enough to land three or more free spins icons, not only will they receive a minimum of 7 Free Spins, but each spin will also begin with the one of those aforementioned abilities activated. On top of that, if they trigger another power in the same spin, their multiplier will increase by one and they can also land extra free spins to prolong the feature.

Equally as epic, if players can successfully collect three or more scatter symbols during the base game, they’ll be given the opportunity to climb the awe-inspiring Tower of Babel in the Tower Bonus. Here they’ll be prompted to select a door to reveal either a prize multiplier or an arrow that’ll move them one floor higher, with bigger and better rewards available the further they climb!

David Mann, Chief Executive Officer at Swintt, said: “Make no mistake about it, Law of Gilgamesh is a hugely ambitious entry in the Swintt’s Elysium Studios catalogue. Featuring breath-taking visuals, engaging features and a cascading reels mechanic that’ll keep players coming back for more, the game really will be an epic addition to any operator’s line-up.”
