ePlay Digital Readying For New Sports Gaming Legislation in Canada and U.S. with Launch of Fan Freak
ePlay’s sports app, Fan Freak, to appeal to serious and ‘fluid’ sports fans; early access announced.
ePlay Digital Inc. (CSE:EPY | OTC:EPYFF | FSE:2NY2) (the “Company”) today announced that its Fan Freak app in development, is building towards sports gaming legislation in Canada and various states in U.S.. In particular, the Company is leveraging the recent passing of Bill C-218 by the House of Commons on April 22, 2021 which would end prohibition of betting on single-sporting events in Canada.
ePlay’s Fan Freak app is designed for a wide audience, including what the industry is calling the ‘Fluid Sports Fan’. ePlay has created sports apps for ESPN, Intel, Time Warner Cable, Cineplex, and others. Upcoming legislative changes, pandemic projections, market trends, internal analysis, and competitive landscape clearly indicate the features and value proposition positioning for ePlay’s upcoming Fan Freak platform. The company continues to develop its new game positioned for ease of use and broad appeal.
“Even a global pandemic didn’t fully impact the evergreen nature of sports,” says Trevor Doerksen, CEO of ePlay Digital. “We see legislation, NFT technology, mobile technology, augmented reality, and market trends converging to create massive opportunities for ePlay’s apps, including those under development, to become breakout successes with sports fans.”
Fan Freak players use their sports knowledge and prediction skills to build streaks and win. Big winners are ePlay’s Big Shots. Players will also play Fan Freak from within other games in ePlay’s line-up.
ePlay will soon be launching an early access sign-up program for Fan Freak at www.eplaydigital.com/fanfreak. ePlay CEO, Trevor Doerksen, will also be presenting at LA Games Conference on May 11 in a session titled, Creating Blockbusters: The Role of Games and Interactivity in Developing Entertainment Franchises.
A February 2021 PwC report projects up to 10 times the current market size in Canada within the first two years of legalized single-game betting, estimating a range of between USD $1 billion to $2 billion.
