Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – December 15, 2021) – Tiidal Gaming Group Corp. (CSE: TIDL) (“Tiidal Gaming” or the “Company”), a leading esports and gaming platform company, is pleased to announce that Sportsflare, a wholly-owned division of Tiidal Gaming, has entered into a partnership with Gaming Stars, a leading European skill-based wagering platform.
Founded in 2019 and based in Germany, Gaming Stars offers a player-vs-player (“PVP”) solution, where players can wager against each other across popular video games. As of November 2021, Gaming Stars has more than 60,000 users, who have played in over 100,000 matches, generating a volume of approximately €500,000+.1 Additionally, their platform’s customer base has increased by 10% per week since October 2021.2
Under the partnership, Sportsflare will provide an automated pricing and risk solution, which includes the Bet-on-Yourself (“BoY”) product to Gaming Stars, enabling gamers of any level to complete in-game skill challenges for cash prizes. With Sportsflare’s BoY product, Gaming Stars can offer the coveted player-vs-environment (“PVE”) mode, allowing players to wager on-demand which adds a new betting category on the Gaming Stars platform. Through the BoY solution, Sportsflare offers this capability to Gaming Stars for popular video game titles such as Valorant, Fortnite, Call of Duty: Warzone, and Call of Duty: Vanguard, with the intention to expand to more titles.
The PVP mode often has issues with player skill-matching, queue times, results, and dispute settlement, resulting in churn for operators. A PVE offering solves these issues by providing a fair assessment of player skill, generating suitable skill challenges. Given that Sportsflare’s BoY product is fully artificial intelligence (“AI”)-based, it is built to scale, which allows limitless concurrent matches to be played on the platform. Additionally, the BoY product contains a proprietary anti-fraud and anti-cheat system, to create an environment of fair competition and gameplay.

Overall, this partnership will expand the growth of our technology division as we continue to solidify our footprint within the esports betting industry as a business-to-business technology supplier.”
