Enter giveaways, win swag and purchase Neopets jewelry, plush, and MORE!

Neopets is bringing San Diego Comic-Con attendees some serious "Neostalgia" with an exciting assortment of contests, exclusive Comic-Con swag, and a variety of items available for purchase, directly onsite at booth #929!

With the return of the in-person San Diego Comic-Con, attendees will be having major flashbacks at the What's Your Passion Jewelry / Neopets booth as they rediscover the Neopets fandom with plush, jewelry, and exclusive pins from What's Your Passion Jewelry as well as a sneak peek at the newest Upper Deck Neopets trading cards!

"Jumping back into in-person events and connecting with the fans is always a huge deal for us, but never more so than this year," says Jim Czulewicz , CEO, JumpStart Games. "Outside of the website that fans have explored and adored for over 20 years, we wanted to bring attendees a classic Neopets experience where they can physically interact with the brand through a display of collectible jewelry, adorable plush, and our newest Neopets trading cards."

"We are super excited to attend San Diego Comic-Con this year," says Carlin West , CEO and Founder of Carlin West Agency. "One of the best parts of working with the Neopets brand is seeing the fans and their reactions to Neopets and its newest products. This brand has resonated with millions of users for more than 20 years and we're eager to share some exciting merchandise with a fandom that grew up on Neopets!"

Booth #929 Activities:
  • Purchase: What's Your Passion Jewelry has created 4 limited edition hard enamel pins (Shoyru, Kacheek, Kougra and JubJub) for purchase in silver and gold glittering detail. WYP will also be showcasing their newest Pride additions as well as their first piece of costume jewelry. The Neopets plush line (Snowbunny, Rainbow Slorg, Island Kadoatie, Faerie Draik, and Royal Meepit) will also be on sale for lucky Comic-Con attendees!

  • Giveaways: Take your photo in front of the Neopets Banner Wall and show us your tagged photos with #NeopetsSDCC2022 for free Neopets swag such as collectible and holographic stickers, paint brush pins, Upper Deck trading cards and commemorative SDCC2022 rainbow lanyards!

  • Interactions: Meet members of The Neopets Team and What's Your Passion Jewelry!

  • Contests: On Sunday, 5 lucky winners will be selected from all those who took photos and used our hashtag: 4 will receive an exclusive "life-sized" Faerie Draik, and 1 will receive the complete plush collection! There will also be impromptu giveaways and raffles throughout the event – check in at the booth for more information!

The Neopets community can expect increasingly innovative ways to rediscover and enjoy the game that they have loved for decades. Continue the Neopets journey and keep up to date on the latest news by following our social channels:

Investing in Fantasy Sports Stocks

Investing in Fantasy Sports Stocks

When sports writer Daniel Okrent invented Rotisserie League Baseball in 1979, it’s unlikely that the “father of fantasy sports” could have imagined it would evolve into an US$8.9 billion market.

Of course, much of that growth can be attributed to advancements in technology. Fantasy sports magazines published in the late 1980s became websites in the 1990s, and eventually fantasy sports businesses; more recently there’s been a boom in fantasy sports apps for smartphones.

North America currently represents the largest market for fantasy sports services. Research and Markets estimates that more than 59 million people in the US and Canada play fantasy sports. However, India is set to experience significant market growth in the near-term future, with expectations that the number of players will rise from 20 million to a projected 150 million by 2022.

EAST SIDE GAMES GROUP ANNOUNCES NORMAL COURSE ISSUER BID

 East Side Games Group Inc. (TSX: EAGR) (OTC: EAGRF) (" ESGG " or the " Company ") announces that the Toronto Stock Exchange (" TSX ") has accepted its notice to proceed with a normal course issuer bid (the " NCIB ").

east side games logo (CNW Group/East Side Games Group)

The Company's board of directors believes that the market price of the Company's common shares (the " Shares "), from time to time, may not reflect the inherent value of the Company, and purchases of Shares pursuant to the NCIB may represent an appropriate and desirable use of the Company's funds.  Any purchases made under the NCIB will be made by the Company subject to favourable market conditions at the prevailing market price at the time of acquisition through the facilities of the TSX and other alternative Canadian trading systems.

Pursuant to the notice, during the twelve month period commencing August 16, 2022 and ending August 15, 2023 , the Company may purchase up to 4,076,819 of its Shares, representing approximately 5% of its outstanding Shares as of August 2 , 2022.  Under the NCIB, other than purchases made pursuant to block purchase exemptions, the Company may purchase up to 5,371 Shares on the TSX and other alternative Canadian trading systems during any trading day, which represents approximately 25% of the average daily trading volume of the Shares on the TSX for the past six calendar months, being 21,486 shares per day. The Company may cancel any Shares repurchased under the NCIB, or reserve them for awards under its equity compensation plan.

In conjunction with the NCIB, the Company has entered into an automatic share purchase plan (the " ASPP ") with a designated broker to allow for the purchase of its Shares under the NCIB at times when the Company normally would not be active in the market due to applicable regulatory restrictions or internal trading blackout periods.  The ASPP has been pre-cleared by the TSX and is effective August 16, 2022 , the commencement date of the NCIB.  The ASPP constitutes an "automatic securities purchase plan" under applicable Canadian securities laws.  Shares purchased under the ASPP will be included in computing the number of Shares purchased under the NCIB.  Outside of these internal trading blackout periods, purchases under the NCIB will be made based on management's discretion.

Although the Company intends to purchase Shares under its NCIB, there can be no assurances that any such purchases will be completed.
