Signs new contracts with the Dallas Mavericks and the Dallas Stars

TORONTO, Feb. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Bump 50:50, a division of Sportech Racing // Digital, announced that they have been selected by the foundations associated with the Dallas Mavericks of the NBA and the Dallas Stars of the NHL to provide the technologies and services to conduct 50/50 charitable in-game raffles.

The Dallas Mavericks Foundation and the Dallas Stars Foundation are the first Sportech Bump 50:50 customers from the state of Texas, where legislation recently permitted charitable 50/50 raffles on professional sporting events. 

Bump 50:50 will deliver point-of-sale software, hardware, a triple-redundant central system for real-time raffle processing, and support services that include monitoring and immediate support.

The Bump 50:50 team will also provide a suite of services to assist with the marketing program design and coordination, sales team training, reporting, and data analytics – that has helped other Bump 50:50 customers shatter fundraising records.

The 50/50 raffles will be held at all Mavericks and Stars home games held at American Airlines Center in Dallas, offering fans easy and convenient ways to participate through roaming ticket sales staff as well as through kiosks.  Real time jackpot updates will be displayed via mobile devices, kiosk locations, and in-arena digital assets.

Floyd Jahner, President of the Dallas Mavericks Foundation and COO of the Mavericks commented, "We have a big opportunity to offer our fans a fun and easy way to participate in the mission of our Foundation, by supporting women and children in need in DFW through charitable giving.  We are confident that the 50/50 raffle and the Bump 50:50 team can help us achieve our goals by raising funds and spreading awareness for the Dallas Mavericks Foundation." 

Jason Farris, Dallas Stars Foundation President and Dallas Stars COO, commented, "We're excited to work with the Bump 50:50 team for the launch of our new charitable in-game raffle. Empowering professional sports teams' non-profit foundations to raise money at their respective home games will have a significant impact on local communities. With the new avenue to receive donations through charitable raffle ticket purchases, we will be able to better support our current initiatives and create new ones that will benefit children across North Texas."

Dan Tanenbaum, President of Bump 50:50, stated, "We are thrilled to welcome The Dallas Stars Foundation and Dallas Mavericks Foundation to the Bump 50:50 team.  We look forward to bringing the excitement of 50/50 raffles to the fans of the Stars and the Mavericks and to helping them share in the joy of supporting the teams' charitable initiatives."
