I'm pleased to announce the launch of Sharp Gaming. We're bringing brand new gambling technology for sports betting and gaming operators, which will provide a range of services to improve their products.
I am stepping away from running Degree 53 to take the role as the Chief Executive Officer at Sharp Gaming. However, I'll still be supporting Degree 53 as a director and shareholder.
In 2017, Sharp Gaming received over £25m investment from the UK leading bookmaker owner, Fred Done. The platform has grown from the team at Degree 53, who have brilliant expertise in creating advanced and reliable online gambling products.
Three years ago, Degree 53 formed a gaming division, which was the start for Sharp Gaming. Over this period, we recruited over 100 technology experts to help us build Sharp Gaming and we continue to develop our technology suite now, as well as trialling it on a test product. It will offer comprehensive functionality to create digital and retail products, integrating third-party services, as well as improving the overall performance for operators.
I'm very excited to be launching Sharp Gaming and look forward to seeing how it will progress to help many operators worldwide. I am proud of what we have achieved so far, how hard the team have been working and all the support they've provided to continue with the project despite the lockdown. We have lots of work ahead, but I can't wait to see where Sharp Gaming will take us in the future.
