While the US sports betting market has grown rapidly since the repeal of the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) removed a federal ban on online gambling, only 13 states have legalized online gambling at this point. Many more are expected to follow in the coming years, with the addressable market significantly expanding as a result. Total online sports betting revenues in the US are forecasted to reach 4 BILLION USD in 2022 and amount to nearly 40 Billion USD in 2033*.
Money Line will become an integral part of ZeU and will continue to operate as a separate business unit with its current management team, and employees, led by CEO Frank Dumas. Money Line will integrate with ZeU's current organization where relevant in order to generate efficiencies and additional revenue streams through subscription based sporting events, wagering and digital transaction fees through the block chain.
'The timing could not be more perfect as we have recently seen a dramatic change in legislation in favor of online wagering within the US. Companies including Draft Kings, Fan Duel, MGM among others have recently been licensed to enter the online sportsbook and wagering markets within multiple legal state jurisdictions, and are now actively advertising online wagering and sportsbooks during national sporting event broadcasts', stated B. Michael Friedman, Founder of Money Line Sports. We are extremely enthusiastic about this opportunity and access to the public markets through this transaction with ZeU. This move will quickly solidify Money Line's unique value proposition within the gaming sector providing subscription based live streaming sports, wagering in legal jurisdictions and the use of block chain digital currency 'Bettor COIN' and Bettor BUX (BUX) to improve KYC, AML and reduce credit card fraudulent transactions' further stated B. Michael Friedman, Founder of Money Line Sports Inc..
