Toronto, ON – December 18, 2017: 5050 Central Ltd. (“the Company”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Gaming Nation Inc., is pleased to announce that the Company has reached an agreement with Florida Citrus Sports (FCSports), hosts of the Citrus Bowl presented by Overton’s and the Camping World Bowl.

The agreement will see FCSports implement 5050 Central’s digital fundraising platform at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida to run 50/50 raffles during the Citrus Bowl presented by Overton’s on January 1, 2018 and the Camping World Bowl on December 28, 2017. Portions of the proceeds from each raffle will benefit the FCSports Foundation.

The seventh-oldest collegiate bowl game in the country, the Citrus Bowl presented by Overton’s began as the Tangerine Bowl in 1947. In the new “College Football Playoff” era of college football’s postseason, the Citrus Bowl will continue to host the top Big Ten and SEC teams from outside the CFP series of bowls (including Rose, Sugar, Fiesta, Orange, Cotton and Peach).

Originally titled the Blockbuster Bowl, the Camping World Bowl was born in Miami, Florida, in 1990. After 11 seasons in South Florida, the game was acquired by Florida Citrus Sports and moved to Orlando. The first edition of the game in Central Florida was called the Tangerine Bowl, a tribute to the name of Orlando’s original bowl game (now the Citrus Bowl).

FCSports is a not-for-profit membership organization dedicated to increasing community spirit and pride, promoting tourism, stimulating economic development and ultimately benefiting charities, educational institutions and the quality of life in Central Florida through its signature events.

“We are so excited to be partnering with 5050 Central," Florida Citrus Sports CEO Steve Hogan said. "The 50/50 raffles held at the Camping World Bowl and the Citrus Bowl presented by Overton's will raise thousands to benefit children in the neighborhoods surrounding Camping World Stadium through the Florida Citrus Sports Foundation. While we're huge fans of the thrilling football being played on the field during bowl season, we're even prouder of the positive impact our games have off of it, and this alliance will help us make these truly life-changing raffles more accessible than ever."

“We are very pleased that Florida Citrus Sports will utilize our digital raffle platform during both Bowl Games,” said Jason Little, VP of Business Development of Gaming Nation. “We know our technology will bring added excitement to the bowl games for fans, while acting as an incredible fundraising vehicle for their foundation to support the local community.”
