Online Wagering Capabilities Continue to Expand Nationwide

NEW YORK, May 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- As the legal system slowly becomes more friendly towards online sports betting, states around the country begin to look towards the young and growing industry to raise tax revenue. Recently, the advancement of sports betting in Illinois took place, vastly expanding the mobile wagering options available to the state's 12.7 million residents. Furthermore, data from Odds.com published by Forbes showed that Illinois is poised to generate upwards of USD 73 Million in taxable revenue if the estimates of a USD 488 Million annual market come to fruition. The 15% tax levied on gaming revenue could also see this number rapidly increase once measures to allow online and mobile offerings are put in place. FansUnite Entertainment Inc.

The increasing popularity of online gambling is attributed to several factors, such as advancements in the field of digital marketing, wider availability of modern technology as well as easy-to-use systems. In recent years, the global online gaming market has expanded to represent one of the fastest growing segments of the gambling industry. As a result, several important developments related to this field were implemented. For example, late last year, the first college sports deal with a gambling company outside of Nevada was implemented. 

FansUnite Entertainment Inc. (OTCQB: FUNFF) (CSE: FANS) announced breaking news yesterday that, "it has fully integrated CoinsPaid ("CoinsPaid"), a leading provider of cryptocurrency exchange and payment solutions, into the Company's B2B online gambling solutions.

CoinsPaid will enable FansUnite's B2B wagering platforms to process cryptocurrency payments, which provides online bettors with the ability to utilize other virtual currencies in addition to cash. B2B partners that license FansUnite's technology are now equipped with crypto deposit solutions for Bitcoin, Dogecoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash and Tether. As a result, FanUnite's online betting solutions can be monetized via alternative payment methods, increasing the convenience for online gamblers to place bets.

'The integration of CoinsPaid allows us to offer payment solutions for our B2B partners who can now capitalize on the increasing popularity of cryptocurrencies,' said Scott Burton, CEO of FansUnite. 'As more companies begin to recognize the importance and utility of decentralized money, we are delighted to join a growing ecosystem where customers can make purchases with virtual currencies.'
