theScore Supports Proposals to Legalize Online Gambling in Ontario

Sponsored by Businesswire

theScore, Inc. (TSX Venture: SCR) (“theScore”) today welcomed proposals
by Ontario’s Progressive Conservative government to legalize online
gambling in the province. The plans, presented in the provincial
government’s budget, also included support for the legalization of
single event sports wagering at the federal level.

With one of the most popular sports apps in North America, theScore is set
to become the first media company in North America to launch a
sportsbook in the United States
after federal legislation
prohibiting sports betting was overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court in
May 2018. theScore’s sports betting platform is scheduled
to launch
in New Jersey mid-2019.*

Late Thursday, in the Progressive Conservative Government’s “A Plan for
the People” provincial budget, proposals were advanced to “establish a
competitive market for online legal gambling that will reflect consumer
choice while protecting consumers who play on these
websites.” The provincial government will now consult with key
stakeholders over its plans. In addition, the province confirmed it had
already asked the federal government to take action to legalize single
event sports wagering. Its full announcement can be read here.

John Levy, Founder and CEO of theScore, said he fully supported
proposals to finally modernize outdated prohibition laws in the country
and said the Company would be prepared to offer online sports betting to
Ontarians when legislation permitted.

“theScore has always embraced the fact that sports betting is part of
the overall fan experience, and it is finally time for jurisdictions
across Canada to adopt common sense sports betting regulation,” he said.
“We applaud the Ontario government for taking this very significant
first step. As we prepare for the launch of our sportsbook in the United
States, we intend to actively participate in the Ontario government’s
consultation process.

“theScore is already a highly-recognized brand in Canadian mobile
sports, and the most popular mobile sports app in the country. We’ll be
ready to provide Canadian fans with a best-in-class mobile sports
betting experience when the opportunity arises.”

theScore app, which is used by more than four million sports fans a
month and is one of the leading multisport news and data apps in North
America, is available in the App
 and on Google
 and offers news, scores, alerts and stats for every major

including NBA Basketball, NFL Football, NHL Hockey and MLB Baseball.
