Everi Holdings Inc, a premier provider of land-based and digital casino gaming content and products, financial technology, and player loyalty solutions, announced that the Company was recognized by the Austin American-Statesman with a “Greater Austin Top Workplaces 2022” award.

This is the second consecutive year Everi earned this designation from the Austin American-Statesman, and it marks a total of 15 Top Workplaces honors awarded to the Company over the past two years. In addition to this recognition, the Company was recently named to the Nevada Top Workplaces list for the second consecutive year. In 2022, Everi’s India offices also received a second annual certification as a Great Place to Work from the Great Place to Work Institute in India, which is based on positive employee feedback gathered through an independent employee engagement survey.

“We are honored to be recognized again for our success in creating a positive company culture that is valued by our team members across multiple locations in the greater Austin area as well as our talented team of remote employees in Central Texas. This award is based solely on direct feedback from our team members, who continue to collectively foster a strong, cohesive culture that makes Everi an exceptional place to work,” Randy Taylor, President and CEO of Everi, said.

Issued by Energage, the research company with more than 16 years of experience surveying over 27 million employees at 70,000 organizations, Top Workplaces awards are based solely on employee feedback gathered through their annual independent survey. Their anonymous survey uniquely measures 15 culture drivers that are critical to the success of any organization, including alignment, execution, and connection, among others.

RotoWire Launches “Picks & Props” App

Published

on

 

RotoWire.com, a leading provider of expert sports news and advice, has launched its latest innovation: the “Picks & Props” app. Unveiled within the app store earlier this month, it is now easier than ever to stay up to date on recommendations and predictions for all fantasy pick’em and players props from any mobile or tablet device.

“The Fantasy Pick’em and legal Player Props betting market has had explosive growth and we’ve seen strong user demand for RotoWire’s leading player news and information for these products. We’re excited to launch the Picks & Props app that gives players access to the top recommendations for all the leading Fantasy platforms and major sportsbooks based on RotoWire’s projections, lineups and player news,” said Peter Schoenke, Co-Founder of RotoWire and former Chairman of the Fantasy Sports & Gaming Association.

Capitalizing on the surge and substantial growth seen recently within the fantasy Pick’em market segment, total traffic to RotoWire’s “Picks & Props” tool on its website has increased by 266% in the last 9 months, prompting the need to build a standalone app.

The mobile app delivers an extensive array of real time recommendations and information across all fantasy sports. It also includes lines from all the major fantasy and sports betting platforms to ensure users have a fast and convenient way to access recommended fantasy sports picks and predictions. To make projections for every play in every major sport the app combines four key prediction factors: Lines set by Sportsbooks; recommendations from Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) Pick’em Sites; RotoWire Projections; Hit Rate.

By analyzing markets from leading sportsbooks and DFS platforms, comparing them to RotoWire projections, and assessing historical performance, the app generates a score ranging from -100 (strong lean toward LESS) to +100 (strong lean toward MORE). Each prediction factor has its own rating and is assigned a “weight” that gives it the impact on the total score. Additionally, the app provides users with real time updates on injuries and playing time by leveraging RotoWire’s comprehensive fantasy and sports data. Furthermore, its intuitive and streamlined user interface ensures seamless navigation and user comfort when accessing the app via any mobile device.
