The website will focus on allowing players to compete in daily tournament-style games based of NFL football data, with more sports added in the future, including basketball, ice hockey and baseball.

Advertising will be the main revenue source, the USA Today exec handling the project, Mark Pesavento, revealed, adding that the mass-circulation newspaper would be used to promote the new product in both traditional and digital media.

Brian Cullingworth

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
