TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Score Media and Gaming Inc. (TSX Venture: SCR) (“theScore” or “the Company”), is pleased to announce that its subsidiary, Score Digital Sports Ventures Inc. (“theScore Bet”), has obtained Gaming Laboratories International GLI-33 certification for its mobile sports betting app and the sportsbook player account management platform it plans to deploy in Colorado. GLI’s evaluation of theScore Bet app and the sportsbook player account management platform was completed with the Bet.Works™ Sports Wagering Platform version 1.1.0. Achieving GLI-33 certification satisfies one of the remaining regulatory approvals necessary before theScore Bet may offer wagering in Colorado.
“This is yet another significant milestone towards the multi-state expansion of theScore Bet, coming just days after we also secured GLI-33 certification for Indiana,” said John Levy, Founder and CEO of theScore. “We can’t wait to bring theScore Bet to Colorado and showcase the uniquely integrated media and gaming experience our team has created.”
theScore secured market access to offer mobile sports betting in Colorado via its previously announced agreement with a subsidiary of U.S. gaming operator Jacobs Entertainment Inc., and anticipates launching theScore Bet there later this summer, subject to the satisfaction by theScore of the Colorado Division of Gaming’s applicable regulatory requirements.
Neither the TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
