The participating lotteries have on the 1st October 2018 signed an agreement to establish a Joint Venture Company (JVC) between Danske Lotteri Spil, Française des Jeux, Norsk Tipping and Veikkaus named Lotteries Entertainment Innovation Alliance AS (LEIA).

The four lotteries share the same values and public interest goals, and they have been granted a mandate by their respective authorities in the lottery gaming industry. They have decided to create a joint company to share resources in order to build a wider and efficient digital gaming offer, allowing these lotteries to address some of the common main challenges in the digital space, and foster open innovation. The aim is to develop liquidity games and to offer an enhanced range of games to the consumers.

Morten Eriksen, from Norsk Tipping, has been appointed as the CEO of the new venture. Eriksen has more than 20 years of experience from the Telecom industry and recently 5 years from the lottery industry.

“The consumer behaviour in the Lottery industry is changing rapidly which requires faster development and adaption from both the operators and suppliers. We are happy to announce this new Joint Venture and I believe we will be stronger together in the long term in delivering strong value propositions to each market” says Olli Sarekoski, Chairman of LEIA and CEO of Veikkaus.

LEIA is a limited liability company incorporated under the laws of Norway, and has its registered address at Måsåbekkvegen 20, 2315 Hamar, Norway.

Continues Role as Pace-Setter for Global Esports Performance with The Addition of Top Talent from the Sports and Entertainment Industries

Fnatic, leading London-based esports organisation, today announced the appointment of its new Chairman, Lucien Boyer, who brings decades of success and experience from the sports and entertainment industry. Additionally, the brand has brought on two new hires to support the continued growth of its talent and partnerships division: Soraya Sobh, Head of Talent Management and George Mead, Interim Partnerships Director. These impressive additions bolster the growing Fnatic leadership team to secure its leadership position in the world of esports.

“At Fnatic, we are always on the search for top talent across industries, and we are excited to welcome Lucien to leverage his deep expertise and network within the media and sports landscape,” said Sam Mathews, Founder and CEO of Fnatic. “As a leader in esports performance, we are constantly working towards a more diverse and inclusive future, and we pride ourselves on being an equal opportunity employer as we continue to grow our business in 2020 and beyond. The team looks forward to working closely with both Soraya and George to ensure Fnatic continues to be at the top.”

As the Chairman, Lucien will help support the company’s next phase of growth, advance and develop the brand internationally and continue driving relationships with key stakeholders in the media and entertainment landscape. He is recognised as one of the leading experts in sports and entertainment marketing and is an industry pioneer in sponsorship activation, branded content, experiential marketing, fan engagement and social entertainment. Lucien is co-founder of Inspiring Sport Capital and Chairman of Global Sports Week, an annual international sports event that connects diverse leaders to shake, shape and share the future of the sport economy. Prior to that, Lucien was the Chief Marketing Officer at Vivendi, the leading integrated media, content and communications group and the Global President and CEO of Havas Sports and Entertainment. Lucien will succeed Nick Fry non-executive Chairman, who will remain as an advisor to Fnatic.

“I am humbled to join a highly successful organisation led by such a visionary founder and CEO,” says Lucien Boyer. “There is no doubt that esports represents the most promising new frontier for sports, bringing it closer to the entertainment world. I believe that my unique mix of experience and leadership in brand, sport, media and the entertainment business will help guide Fnatic through the next stage of its success story.”

Lucien’s appointment builds on other reinforcements Fnatic has made to its leadership and management teams this year, particularly in the talent and partnership verticals. Soraya joins Fnatic to continue building out the internal talent management function. Previously, she ran her own artist management agency where she worked with well-known creators such as Above & Beyond and Benny Benassi. This experience, coincided with her entrepreneurial spirit, provides the perfect blend to ensure Fnatic remains the destination of choice for all the best pro-gaming, creator and influencer talent in esports. Soraya is also a recent winner of the Women of the Future (Media) award sponsored by Aviva, and is a previous Music Week 30 Under 30 rising star.

George joins Fnatic following an extensive career with Beko, leading global brand management and partnerships where he spearheaded the Beko #EatLikeAPro campaign with FC Barcelona and UNICEF, which received a series of international industry awards. As Fnatic continues to secure notable, global brand partnerships, George’s prior experience of working with iconic brands and major sports teams brings a strong, knowledgeable perspective to the organisation. With the increased interest of non-endemic brands looking to partner with esports or gaming organisations, George offers an experienced outlook to the table.

“In a young industry and community such as gaming, there are many opportunities to differentiate,” continued Mathews. “At Fnatic, we’re utilising our talent to continue creating a competitive advantage among the biggest brand holders in esports, music and entertainment. Each new hire supports our brand’s larger mission of seeking out, leveling up and amplifying performance-led creators, players and brands for the years to come.”

Fans can show their favorite streamers and pro players even more support through interactive activities

The first of many more investments to come
WePlay Esports media holding has invested in a new online interactive platform called Organization.GG. This is just the beginning of what will become a long history of investment in the gaming and entertainment industry by the company, and we are glad to have Organization.GG as our first.

One might ask why WePlay Esports is interested in content creators and engagement. To this, Oleg Krot, CEO and Managing Partner of WePlay Esports media holding, had the following to say: “To continue to host great events, we need an ecosystem that enables all its stakeholders to thrive. Organization.GG will do just that for streamers and pro players, keeping our audiences engaged until our next big event.”

We are delighted to have WePlay Esports not only as our investor but as a strategic partner that will boost our growth through various partnerships and integrations. We are confident that this will be a mutually beneficial partnership,” says Organization.GG CEO, Dima Okhrimchuk.

A sustainable source of income for content creators
With its rise in popularity as a full-fledged profession, the number of streamers has gone up considerably. As a result, competition among streamers is up. There was a 40% reduction in viewers per streamer from 2015 to 2020, with donations accounting for over 50% of their income. With the need for varied, ever-growing content, viewers value personalized interaction and content from streamers, and this is why Organization.GG exists.

“Organization.GG bridges the interaction gap between pro gamers and streamers and their fans by offering online shared experiences. We are kicking off with a Wolf Pack Challenge in CS:GO where pros will challenge each other, and their fans will play along,” stated Organization.GG CEO, Dima Okhrimchuk.
Tailor-made interactive activities for fans

Organization.GG provides streamers and pro players with access to its payment system, game servers, stats, scheduling, and other parts of its automated infrastructure to create personalized experiences for their fans. This provides viewers with fun and diverse ways of interacting with their favorite talent, leaving them hungry for the next opportunity to join in the action.
