Toronto, ON – July 9, 2020 – i3 Interactive Inc.(“i3 Interactive” or (the “Company”) (CSE: BETS), is pleased to announce the launch of LineMovement.com (“LineMovement”), a new sports content platform, focused on solidifying the Company’s position within the greater online gaming marketplace and leveraging the Company’s social media presence to drive massive traffic to the Company’s affiliates and partners.

Mr. Holka has established a personal brand throughout the daily fantasy sports and betting industry for data-driven analysis and cross-platform content at elite-level production quality. Mr. Holka has extensive experience in the gambling space, and in building a business revolving around sports content and one-on-one consulting services for high-stakes players.
Chris Neville, the Chief Executive Officer of the Company commented on the launch of LineMovement and Mr. Holka’s involvement: “Creating and sharing unique content across a multitude of social media platforms to drive massive traffic to our affiliates and partners is an integral part of our low-cost acquisition strategy. Joe is the perfect person to help us create a first-class content experience for our customers and he’s not afraid to challenge the social norms of our industry.”
