PrizePicks Repeats as Fantasy Operator of the Year by EGR North America, Highlighting "Triple Play" of Accolades Over the Past Week

Fantasy Sports Leader Also Named to Top 5 of Atlanta Pacesetter List for Second Straight Year; Recognized as Top 10 Innovative Company by TAG: Technology Association of Georgia

NEW YORK and ATLANTA, May 4, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- PrizePicks, the largest fantasy sports operator in North America, spent the last week capturing honors both locally and from the fantasy sports industry, most notably being named Fantasy Operator of the Year by EGR North America for the second consecutive year. The award was presented at the EGR awards ceremony last week in midtown Manhattan.

"They're recognizing both our growt and innovation as a fantasy sports and technology leader." - CEO Adam Wexler

PrizePicks followed its EGR repeat with another, being named to the top 5 of the Atlanta Business Chronicle's Pacesetter list – which tracks the fastest-growing technology companies in Metro Atlanta – for the second year in a row. PrizePicks completed its "triple play" last night at the Georgia Technology Summit in Atlanta, being named to the top 10 of the TAG Technology Association of Georgia's Top 40 Innovative Companies list.

"Obviously, it's serendipitous that these awards all fell together on the calendar, but what I find most rewarding is that as a whole they're recognizing both our growth and innovation as a fantasy sports and technology leader," said PrizePicks Co-Founder & CEO Adam Wexler. "It also reinforces the fact that we've not only built a compelling consumer entertainment platform, but we have emerged as a leader in the Georgia technology community."

PrizePicks continued to set the standards for innovation and customer service in fantasy sports in 2022, a year in which the company:

  • Offered more than 60 different sports league offerings on its platform, including an esports community that grew to more than 200,000 members
  • Continued to provide round-the-clock service to its member base, earning a 4.8 iOS rating while consistently introducing new play options such as the 6-Pick Stat Flex Play and Stat Combos
  • Grew its popular Discord channel to nearly 300,000 members while integrating with its creative social and marketing programs
  • Joined the NCPG as part of a series of initiatives designed to expand and enhance the company's support of responsible gaming

"Balancing growth and innovation is a challenge for any company, but in fantasy sports your platform either keeps evolving or it's forgotten," said PrizePicks Co-Founder & Chief Technology Officer Jay Deuskar. "The game play features and innovations we introduced in 2022 required extensive research and development and rigorous testing, but the reward came in the feedback from our members and now these prestigious industry honors."
