SuperDraft to expand into igaming with Game Play Network


Fantasy gaming operator SuperDraft has announced plans to launch igaming supplier Game Play Network’s technology platform, which allows customers to play casino games for real money across the US.

SuperDraft, which is part-owned by Caesars Entertainment since the operator took out a minority equity position in the business in January, currently offers daily fantasy sports and free-to-play sportsbook options.

Game Play Network’s platform enables the reveal of real money wagers on live horse races in conjunction with casino-style games such as slots, keno and video poker.

This allows the company to offer igaming in up to 40 states under the Federal Interstate Horseracing Act and local state laws.

“The partnership with Game Play Network has the opportunity to materially advance SuperDraft’s online gaming vision to provide sports fans and iGaming players with engaging and easy-to-understand ways to play and win,” said Steve Wang, chief executive and founder of SuperDraft.

“Combining GPN’s one-of-a-kind igaming platform with our innovative tech-first approach to product development will allow us to accelerate our ability to reach a larger portion of the U.S. in a way that further distinguishes SuperDraft as an industry leader.”

David Marshall, Game Play Network’s chief executive and co-founder, added: “We couldn’t be more thrilled to work with SuperDraft and to be part of the Caesars family.”

“It’s exciting to start our new B2B platform with an innovative company like SuperDraft, under the umbrella of one of the best known and largest casino companies in the world.”
