Texas Voters Resoundingly Approve Charitable Raffles for Professional Sports Teams' Foundations

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - November 04, 2015) - Almost 70% of voters in Texas yesterday approved legislation that will authorize professional sports teams' charitable foundations to operate charitable raffles including electronic 50/50 raffles during their home games.

Over the past year, Gaming Nation Inc.'s (TSX VENTURE: FAN) wholly-owned subsidiary, 5050 Central Ltd., has been working with a consortium of Texas based professional sports teams to introduce changes to the existing laws surrounding charitable raffles including electronic 50/50 raffles. The bill, sponsored by Fort Worth Republican Rep. Charlie Geren, was strongly supported by Texas voters and teams expect to be operating charitable raffles in early 2016.

"We are very grateful for the effort made by the professional sports teams and their foundations as well as Mr. Geren in enacting these legislative changes. The new law will generate millions of dollars in new charitable fundraising that will benefit community-based charities throughout the State of Texas. We look forward to working with the teams to help facilitate these fundraising efforts," stated Gaming Nation Inc.'s President/CEO Scott Secord.
