Reading Time: 2 minutes

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.

OIA Services Limited is an Italian licensed concessionaire that operates under the Betaland.it and Enjoybet.it brands in sports betting and gambling in Italy. OIA Services has an extensive knowledge of the gaming market and offers an exciting and innovative gaming environment, with a complete and highly competitive product offering. Formed in 2010, the Betaland brand has quickly established itself as one of the top 10 operators in the Italian online sports betting market, representing approximately six (6%) percent market share in the largest gambling market in Europe.

Microgame (see June 18, 2018, news release) serves over 30 concessionaires with digital content of which, including OIA Services Ltd, 12 have signed up so far to gain access into the Global-powered DFS network in Italy for the upcoming Football season. These signups are a testament to Microgame’s reach in the Italian gaming market and the increasing level of interest in Global’s DFS product and network. 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.”

Michele Sprovieri, OIA’s Managing Director said, “We are confident we have made the right choice for a DFS product. The Global product is very innovative and we are sure it will be very successful with the Betaland customers.”

Vereeni Investments adds Moneyball stake to fast-growing portfolio
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Venture capital fund Vereeni Investments had made its latest move with a significant investment into Australia’s leading daily fantasy sports operator Moneyball.

The agreement will see Vereeni acquire a majority stake in Moneyball in return for a seven-figure investment.

Launching in 2015, Moneyball was the first Australia-facing daily and weekly fantasy sports operator and is powered by an innovative proprietary platform.

It holds licences applicable to all Australian states and offers a range of contests across multiple sports, including NRL, AFL, EPL, NFL, NBA, PGA, MLB, horse racing, and cricket.

The operator is also expanding internationally with a growing presence in India since 2016, and expects to be live in the US soon with other markets set to follow.

Timothy John Heath, founder and CEO of Vereeni Investments, said: “Acquiring a stake in Moneyball adds another important and complementary asset to the Vereeni ecosystem.

“Moneyball is already established as Australia’s number one daily fantasy sports platform, and we see huge potential for further growth, both in Australia and internationally.

“As an operator that has innovated from the outset, Moneyball is a perfect fit with Vereeni and we are excited to see what the future holds.”

James Fitzgerald, co-founder and co-CEO of Moneyball, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have Vereeni Investments onboard.

“Becoming a part of the Vereeni family positions us strongly for further growth, giving us access to unparalleled global reach and expertise within the gaming sector.

“Daily fantasy sports is still a massively underserviced sector with potential to grow much faster than the broader market. We have spent the last three years searching for a partner to help us deliver on this potential, and in Vereeni we have finally found one.”

Moneyball joins Vereeni’s €100million ‘Level Up’ tech fund alongside a range of other promising early-stage ventures across the fintech, online gaming, business intelligence, insuretech and blockchain verticals, including Global Gaming, OneTouch and Singular.

“Now, in an evolving sports betting landscape, this fast-growing, easy-access take on head-to-head betting fuses the best of sportsbook props and DFS with some towering jackpots. Our players just love taking on the house in a series of one-on-one performance markets, featuring the superstars of US sports.
