Sports wagering pioneers launch Strive Gaming, the first modern, modular iGaming platform designed specifically for North American operators

Strive Platform Ltd, the first iGaming platform business specifically created to cater to the modern, multi-state requirements of North American operators, has officially launched.

Known as “Strive Gaming” the company will be led by Max Meltzer and Damian Xuereb, both joining from Kambi Group Plc where they were Chief Commercial Officer and Vice President of Sales respectively.

Xuereb assumes the role of President and CCO effective immediately and Meltzer assumes responsibilities of CEO in the next few months.

The duo have been responsible for some of the largest B2B commercial partnerships in the US since PASPA was repealed in 2018. These partnerships have gone on to capture more than 35% of the post PASPA US sports wagering market.

Strive Gaming delivers technical performance at scale. Its modern proprietary player account management technology (PAM), roadmap and development team is focused purely on solving the challenges faced by operators in the North American market.

Strive Gaming is also bringing innovation to the market through its limitless Strive INFINITY Engine. This is a unique value driver that will change the way operators engage with their customers and build their internal work-flows.

Strive Gaming’s INFINITY engine will drive higher lifetime values by bringing operators closer to their players through operational automation and contextual real-time engagement.

Development teams for the company will be situated in both the US and Europe with customer serving offices in both the US and Canada to provide a premium, 24/7 service clients.

Damian Xuereb, President and CCO of Strive Gaming, said:

“This is a new era of iGaming PAMs in North America. US operators now have more choice and a new partner to consider that knows what they need and want.

“Strive has carefully considered and understood the shape of the US sports and casino market. As a result, it has built a US centric solution that is battle tested and delivers operator performance at scale – solving the many challenges faced by modern day US operators.

“The speed of regulation across multiple deployment topologies and unique US work-flows means that operators need a PAM partner that can deliver speed to market, agility and a future proof solution – and Strive Gaming has been built to do just that.”

Strive Gaming will be announcing its first operator going live in H2 2021 in the coming weeks.
