PointsBet Canada Signs Two New Exciting Deals

Leading international gaming operator PointsBet continues to expand its list of partners, as its branch PointsBet Canada has struck deals with two companies. The agreements will see the company become the official and exclusive sports betting partner of both Dailyfaceoff.com and The Nation Network. The new deals were announced on September 29, and it be run down for several years.

The gaming company is currently one of the fastest expanding brands in the gaming industry, and it already has a great reputation in several U.S. jurisdictions. Now, the company is also eyeing Canadian expansion as most recently the country legalized single-event wagering and Ontario is on its way to open a regulated iGaming market for private operators.

Two New Partners

Dailyfaceoff.com is one the most preferred sources for fantasy stats and information for sports bettors in Canada. The website offers great insights on hockey, from former TSN Senior Hockey Reporter Frank Seravalli, who is also the host of the DFO Rundown, which is one of the most prominent sports podcasts in the country. Also, the site has generated over 500 million views on its pages since its launch.

In addition to Dailyfaceoff, the gaming company will also become the sports betting partner of The Nation Network and its portfolio of affiliate websites. The Nation Network is a 12-website network with over a billion views on its pages. And now both partners of the gaming operator will have access to its odds integrations, expert analysis, and enhanced tools to inform their daily sports experience across platforms.

Nic Sulsky, Chief Commercial Officer, PointsBet Canada, said that the company was looking into establishing connection and engagement with sports fans in the country and both companies are the perfect candidates for that. Mr. Sulsky is excited about the future, as the company will integrate its products, vision, and consumer-first policy to the sites’ already great mixture of content.

Jay Downton, Co-Founder and CEO of The Nation Network noted that PointsBet is the ideal partner for the two websites and that it fully understands their communities. Mr. Downton said that the company was founded by fans for fans, and they know exactly what its users need. He is excited about the collaboration and is optimistic that the operator’s content will improve their current offerings.

Ready for Battle

The CEO of PointsBet Canada is quite optimistic about the company’s chances of success in the soon-to-be regulated market of Ontario and Canada as a whole. Scott Vanderwel said that the company has great foundations to succeed in the country, even with the expected fierce competition from other gaming giants. He says that he believes in the product of the company is and ready to head-to-head with the competitors.

Joining New York’s Gaming Expansion

New York State is another jurisdiction that PointsBet wants to tap into. Previously, the New York Gaming Commission revealed that the company is one of the several gaming operators that has applied for the state’s mobile sports betting introduction. In the proposal the company has joined forces with American Wagering Inc., Empire Resorts Inc., Rush Street Interactive NY, and WSI IS LLC.
