Rewarded Gamified Interstitials (RoGIs) deliver value to advertisers and uninterrupted gameplay for gamers

Scuti the industry pioneer in gCommerce, today announced a new, patent-pending ad unit for game makers. Rewarded Gamified Interstitials, or RoGIs, will be available to players and games across web2 and web3, allowing for a seamless gaming experience that offers players real-life rewards, uninterrupted gameplay, and targeted advertisements based on player-provided information.

Scuti is the pioneer in gCommerce and the world's first universal rewards marketplace, accessed through video games and metaverses connected to the Scuti Network.

The team that built Massive Inc. and pioneered in-game advertising almost 20 years ago has led the creation of Scuti's RoGIs with input and guidance from the executives behind some of the biggest games on the planet including Fortnite, HALO and World of Warcraft.

Today, gaming is a global community of 3.2 billion people, including 80% of Gen Z and millennials and 75% of all US households. Mobile games are a growing sector in the games industry and reach players with more than $5 trillion in buying power. Scuti's platform offers brands and game makers a new vehicle for building loyalty with this audience.

"For our global brand clients, Scuti stands out with its gCommerce platform," said Andrew Backs, CEO and Founder of Pilot44 , a global digital innovation agency. "With the addition of RoGIs, brands can have further positive impact on game play. Players seek out rewards and accomplishments from their games and now brands can reward play with the payoff of access, engagement and sales."

RoGIs are brief shell games delivered to players between game levels. Players can elect to play with the ads or continue with their game – it's their choice. RoGIs gamify advertising, rewarding players with Scuti$ tm for each ad interaction. Scuti$ can be redeemed for real products in the Scuti Marketplace, exchanged for in-game items and game currencies.

Scuti allows players to opt-in and provide basic personal information to ensure the RoGIs offer a bespoke set of brands and products most relevant to player interests. Scuti never uses information not explicitly provided by the player in curating RoGIs, aiming to create a transparent relationship between the platform, gamer, and brands. RoGis comply with recent guideline changes for Google Play apps and are also compliant with Apple's App Store regulations.

"We believe RoGIs are an important step for game makers, players, and brands across the board," said Nicholas Longano , CEO and Founder of Scuti. "As we enter a new era of engagement, brands must meet consumers where they are and how they want to be met – on their terms, and those terms require a fair value exchange. Gone are the days of ads disrupting and distracting from gameplay, using deceptive tactics to cull player interests for hyper-targeted advertising. Instead, gamified advertisements will reward players, brands, and game-makers alike.

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.
