Toronto, ON – March 14, 2018: 5050 Central Ltd. (“the Company”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Gaming Nation Inc., is extremely pleased to announce that the Company reached an agreement with Smilezone Foundation to implement 50/50 raffles using 5050 Central’s digital platform during Raptors 905 games at Hershey Centre. The 2017 NBA G League Champion Raptors 905 are the affiliate of the Toronto Raptors.

The 905 successfully launched the platform last Saturday during their game against the Canton Charge and attained a G League record 50/50 jackpot.

Smilezone Foundation’s mission is to transform areas (“Zones”) in hospitals and other healthcare centres in order to improve the lives of children facing illness, disabilities, and physical or emotional obstacles.

“Smilezone Foundation is extremely excited about our partnership with Raptors 905 and had remarkable success hosting the first ever 50/50 raffle at a Raptors 905 game,” said Jennifer Kouroupis, Special Events & Development Coordinator for Smilezone. “All of the funds raised through this initiative will help Smilezone transform spaces within the new ErinoakKids Mississauga building.”

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with the Raptors 905 to run digital 50/50 raffles at their games in support of the Smilezone Foundation, an incredible charity located right in our backyard,” said Michael Kramolc, Customer Success Manager of 50/50 Central.
