American daily fantasy sports tournament player rankings provider, RotoGrinders.com, has announced the establishment of RG Network to better leverage its position and more successfully accommodate its recent acquisition of PocketFives.com.
Four diverse brands:
The provider used an official Wednesday press release to explain that the new RG Network entity is to consist of four distinctive online brands in RotoGrinders.com, PocketFives.com, SharpSide.com and FantasyInsiders.com that will allow it to better establish player ranking systems across multiple online gaming verticals.
Looking to the future:
Cal Spears, Chief Executive Officer for RotoGrinders, described the launch of RG Network as a ‘strategic investment in our future’ that is sure to prove successful due to the recent rapid expansion of online gaming and legalized sportsbetting across the United States.
Spears’ statement read…
“RG Network will offer sports bettors more of the high-quality media and tools that the RotoGrinders.com 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.com, which our group founded during the online poker boom 13 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.”
Trio to remain unaffected:
The CEO further stated that provider is to continue as a web-based daily fantasy sports player rankings domain with PocketFives.com providing the same services for online poker. Similarly, he declared that FantasyInsiders.com is to carry on supplying its over 50 million users with information on seasonal, best ball and dynasty fantasy leagues.
However, he detailed that SharpSide.com is to be a community-based enterprise that will concentrate on the sportsbetting market in the United States and allow users to track picks, read and contribute crowd-sourced advice and get insights from top-ranked sports bettors. Spears proclaimed that the newly-created entity is to moreover feature a variety of leaderboards sourced from picks made by its members and offered the markets of Best NBA Spread Bettors and Best Tom Brady Yardage Prop Bettors as two examples.
