Toronto, January 26 2023  Playmaker Capital Inc. (TSXV: PMKR) (“Playmaker”), the digital sports media company that delivers authentic content experiences through its portfolio of sports media and technology brands, announced today that its owned and operated US media business, Yardbarker, was named a top-10 Enterprise Media Outlet for its sports betting handicapping accuracy between October 1, 2022 and December 31, 2022 (“Q4 2022”). Playmaker has made it a key objective to engage sports fans in newly regulating gaming markets and Yardbarker’s media properties have quickly become go-to sources for sports betting content and analysis in the US and Canada.

In May 2022, Yardbarker launched daily sports betting newsletter, Bark Bets, to provide subscribers actionable insights and best picks for each night’s slate of sports games.

In July 2022, Yardbarker activated a sports betting vertical and entered an affiliate partnership with leading odds comparison and technology platform, Oddschecker. The strategic partnership offers users a content mix that enables sports fans and bettors to compare different betting markets and odds, and ultimately convert to become customers of online sportsbooks.
