Toronto, ON – August 24, 2017: 5050 Central Ltd. (“the Company”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Gaming Nation Inc. (FAN-TSXV), is pleased to announce that the Company has inked an agreement with the University of Southern Mississippi Department of Athletics.

The agreement will see Southern Miss Athletics implement 5050 Central’s digital fundraising platform to run 50/50 raffles at athletic events of the Golden Eagles and Lady Eagles who participate in Conference USA, part of NCAA’s Division I.

Net proceeds from each raffle will benefit the Athletics Foundation and the M-Club (former players, coaches, trainers, managers, and spirit squad members) to help support Athletics.

“Southern Miss Athletics and the M-Club are extremely excited to be partnering with 5050 Central in enhancing our existing game day 50/50 raffles,” said Stephen Pugh, Senior Associate Athletic Director for External Operations.  “We were impressed by the innovation of their product line and success that 5050 Central has had with their current clients.  The partnership will hopefully continue to grow our current raffle revenue stream to support athletics as well as provide a more effective and simplified process for participation.”

“We’re very happy to be announcing that the University of Southern Mississippi Athletics Department in partnership with IMG College will be deploying our 50/50 raffle technology at their games this fall athletics season, starting with Football,” said Jason Little, VP of Business Development of Gaming Nation. “Beyond creating a new revenue stream for the Athletic Department, the increased pot sizes will further drive fan engagement and excitement levels.”
