PlayUp is excited to announce that longstanding gaming industry icon and veteran, and current director of PlayUp, Dennis Drazin, has been appointed with immediate effect as Chairman of PlayUp USA.
Drazin was instrumental in the repeal of PASPA and helped create the legislation which eventually led to the U.S. Supreme Court overturning prohibitions on sports betting. Drazin is also a member of the SBC Sports Betting Hall of Fame.
Drazin’s role as Chairman will see him work directly with PlayUp’s leadership team as the business continues to maximize its market access holding and will continue to drive additional strategic and operational opportunities being presented to the company.
“It has been incredibly rewarding to watch the significant growth of PlayUp in recent months. I’m extremely encouraged by the strong performance of the business, particularly within New Jersey where we have made substantial progress in a short period of time amongst what may be the most competitive market in the world. I look forward to working directly with the team to scale our operations, grow our market presence and accelerate our ambitious plans to further our rapid growth across both the U.S. and Australia,” said Drazin.
