PrizePicks Announces Partnership With Prizeout, Becomes Gaming’s First DFS Operator to Address Multi-Billion Dollar Challenge of Fulfillment
Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Mar 23, 2021 - PrizePicks, the largest independently owned Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) operator, today announced a partnership with leading withdrawal marketplace Prizeout that will allow PrizePicks members to convert their winnings to digital currency, access it faster and at a higher value and then spend with a variety of leading retailers and brands. It’s the first such relationship between a DFS operator and a withdrawal marketplace such as Prizeout.
Launched in 2019, Prizeout is a first-in-class solution servicing industries ranging from gaming to payroll solutions that allows consumers to withdraw funds via gift cards at premium rates to brands such as Domino’s Pizza, DoorDash and Williams Sonoma. With an estimated $10 billion withdrawn through online gaming in the United States each year, Prizeout’s average user offering of 11% more value on every cashout constitutes a $1 billion opportunity space for consumers in gaming alone.
“The last thing any platform wants to do is dampen a dynamic customer experience on backend fulfillment,” said PrizePicks CEO Adam Wexler. “Prizeout is addressing an issue that every DFS operator, legalized gambling sites like FanDuel or DraftKings and even emerging NFT marketplaces like NBA Top Shot should be thinking about.”
The integration of Prizeout gives PrizePicks customers even more options with how they can utilize their fantasy winnings if they prefer an alternative to cash, often cited by fantasy players as a pain point in the overall experience. The partnership marks the first fantasy sports or sports betting operator to launch with Prizeout, which closed a Series B round of financing in December valuing the business at $156 million.
“We’re thrilled to be working with a partner like PrizePicks, who is so committed to giving their users a first-class experience from beginning to end,” said Prizeout founder and CEO David Metz. “PrizePicks’ choice to leverage Prizeout enables their members to get even more for their money; keeping members engaged and finding value at every touchpoint.
PrizePicks is the largest independently owned DFS platform in North America. Centered around real-money over/under predictions, PrizePicks allows sports fans to play against the numbers rather than each other and it is the simplest variety of daily fantasy sports with the widest breadth of sports coverage of any DFS operator.
