The Props Network was founded in January 2020 and publishes bookmaker reviews, sports and betting information from across the US. It also broadcasts creator content from its podcast network.

The acquisition sees the appointment of Kyle Piasecki, co-founder of The Props Network, to the role of vice-president of partnerships.

“Kyle and his team have developed a unique approach to what today’s media networks should be by providing value to creators, consumers, and gambling industry partners alike,” said David Woodley, president and chief revenue officer at Playmaker.

“The acquisition of The Props Network and bringing Kyle on board to our team gives Playmaker additional digital channels and strategic insights in the US gambling market via affiliate, podcasts and more.”
