Xpoint has added rivalry to its customers in geolocation technology

Geolocation and technology company Xpoint continued to expand its footprint in North America following an agreement with sports betting and media company Rivalry.

Ensuring compliance with geolocation in Ontario

Toronto-based operator that offers fully regulated online betting on esports and sports as well as casino games, Rivalry, has announced that it has appointed Xpoint as its provider of geolocation technology services to ensure regulatory compliance for its business targeting the next generation of gamblers .

Commenting on the announcement, Rivalry’s chief technology officer Ryan White outlined that the decision to appoint Xpoint as the operator’s provider of geolocation services was “the natural choice” for the company.

“Their technology plays a key role in our ability to operate securely, and we view the relationship with Xpoint as a true partnership,” continued White, highlighting Xpoint’s credentials that make them a great partner, such as its high efficiency and the ability to value.

Geolocation technology services provided by Xpoint under the partnership will ensure that all customer transactions at Rivalry comply with the active regulations in the gambling market in Ontario, the Canadian province that launched online sports betting in April 2022.

“We are excited to partner with Rivalry as they make such rapid progress in growing their business and their brand in Canada,” said Marvin Sanderson, CEO of Xpoint, outlining the gambling operator’s strengths.

“The rivalry’s strong focus on esports, and the young demographic, make the company a serious force in one of the most important markets in North America, so to be part of their team is a real honor for Xpoint,” said Sanderson.

North American expansion continues

The Canadian brand’s appointment as a provider of geolocation technology services came shortly after Xpoint celebrated its first year of operation, following the technology provider’s formal launch to the industry in October 2021 in Las Vegas.

In just over a year, Xpoint successfully launched its multi-partner services in North America, grew its workforce to more than 65, and is one of only two licensed geolocation technology service providers in New Jersey, the other is GeoComply.

Xpoint’s competitor GeoComply filed suit in Delaware District Court against its smaller rival in September, claiming patent infringement and asking the court for injunctive relief to prevent Xpoint from committing further infringements and protect its investment-based risks, but Xpoint came up with a brief statement that allegations of patent infringement make no sense.
