RotoGrinders Expands into Sports Betting & Online Poker
RotoGrinders, the central community for Daily Fantasy Sports, today announced the creation of RG Network, which aims to establish player rankings systems in all online gaming industries.
At its launch, RG Network includes newly-acquired PocketFives, previously-acquired Fantasy Insiders, and RotoGrinders’ brand new platform, SharpSide.
By launching RG Network with these four sites (RotoGrinders, SharpSide, Fantasy Insiders, and PocketFives), RotoGrinders will leverage its existing fan base to rapidly expand into the sports betting, season-long fantasy, and online poker markets.
Identifying and celebrating the best gamers has always been at the heart of both RotoGrinders (DFS Tournament Player Rankings) and PocketFives (Online Poker Tournament Player Rankings) and will remain a focus with SharpSide, which will feature a variety of leaderboards for sports bettors.
“With legalized sports betting and online gaming set to rapidly expand across the U.S., RotoGrinders is thrilled to announce this strategic investment in our future,” said RotoGrinders CEO Cal Spears. “RG Network will offer sports bettors more of the high-quality media and tools that the RotoGrinders’ community has come to expect, but most importantly we will focus on ranking and identifying the best sports bettors. We’re also thrilled to bring PocketFives, which our group founded during the online poker boom 12 years ago, into the RG Network fold. Online poker is positioned to make a comeback as regulated states pool liquidity and tournament prize pools become more attractive.”
