Odds On Compliance, the industry-leading technology and consultancy firm specializing in sports betting, iGaming, and gambling regulatory compliance in the U.S. and abroad, has launched Playbook, the game-changing technology platform that provides the most comprehensive overview ever produced of the U.S. sports betting, iGaming, daily fantasy sports, and iLottery regulatory environment, updated in real time as information changes state-by-state. Playbook provides users with one-click access to state document libraries which are carefully curated, managed, and automatically updated to ensure all data is as current as the information published on all state regulatory agency repositories.
Playbook will be offered in three tiers with the basic level available free-of-charge to all users who register for an account. Playbook+ offers unique features, including state homepages, Versus (a quick view cross-jurisdictional comparison tool), alerts, built-in statute and regulation definitions (readily accessed by hovering over key terms), embedded annotation functionality, and team collaboration. PlaybookAI adds cross-state search functionality, leveraging Odds On Compliance’s proprietary natural language and text classification artificial intelligence model.
“I am delighted to share this one-of-a-kind technology, Playbook, with our clients and the industry as a whole,” commented Eric Frank, CEO and Co-Founder of Odds On Compliance. “Playbook is a game changer. It fuses cutting-edge technology with continuously updated information about the ever-evolving regulatory and compliance landscape in the gaming space. We believe that Playbook will be the industry’s go-to resource for effectively and more efficiently navigating these complex regulatory frameworks in the U.S., and eventually abroad. As experts in the gaming field, who work in and rely on these documents day in and day out, the Odds On team knows first-hand how crucial it is for businesses entering or operating in this space to have quick, easy access to the most accurate and up-to-date information. With the goal of providing the most advanced tools to support and enhance tremendous growth already happening in the gaming industry, we created Playbook.”
For the month of April, Odds On Compliance will offer an early look at Playbook+ to industry experts. Interested parties can request early access by completing the “request access” form at oddsoncompliance.com. In May, Playbook will be accessible to all members of the industry seeking a one-stop source for the most comprehensive, up-to-date regulatory information across the U.S.
“The technology behind Playbook is the driver behind the tool’s power,” explained Mark Scrivo, Chief Technology Officer and Co-Founder. “We’ve built Playbook to not only solve the industry’s problems of today, but also to anticipate solving the problems of tomorrow.

Low6 has delivered an innovative free-to-play product that fits well into this strategy and builds our presence in an important category.”
Rivalry Ultimate Fan is a free-to-play fantasy basketball game that taps into the rise of trading card culture, collectibles and pack openings. Users open digital card packs of NBA players to create line-ups, compete in weekly contests throughout the season and win an array of prizes including NBA merchandise, gift cards and redeemable promotions on Rivalry Corp’s sportsbook and casino.
Rivalry Corp will also release a collection of physical booster packs containing custom-illustrated trading cards of NBA players, Rivalry Corp’s original IP and more with QR codes to claim additional prizes.

Adding to the offline experience, Rivalry Corp will give back to basketball fans and local communities by refurbishing outdated and neglected basketball courts. The promotion will allow registered Rivalry Corp users who have bet on basketball to submit their local court to be restored in hope that it may help cultivate the next NBA star.
Rivalry Ultimate Fan will be available on iOS and Android mobile devices in a sub-set of the company’s Isle of Man-licensed markets. Rivalry Corp will explore opportunities to expand the product and other similar free-to-play offerings to additional regions in the future.
