In order to capitalise on the expansion of igaming and sports wagering, a leader in today’s gaming industry, the private equity arm of Capital Z Group, has confirmed the conclusion of a merger to form Affinity Interactive.
The deal brings together Affinity Gaming, a diversified national casino gaming operator, with Sports Information Group, a New York-based B2B and B2C worldwide omnichannel sports, technology, digital, media, and wagering business, as first announced on June 14, 2021.
Affinity Interactive now offers regional gaming and horse betting, and is set to develop social gaming, igaming, and sports betting in the near future, with a customer base of one million in the United States alone.
With prominent regional casinos in Nevada, Missouri, and Iowa, as well as technology, digital and media platforms, and an online betting presence, the corporation is well positioned to profit from the worldwide sports betting and igaming boom.
Mary Beth Higgins, CEO of Affinity Gaming, and Itay Fisher, CEO of SIG, will remain in charge of their respective businesses.

Founder, president, and chief executive officer of ZCG, as well as chairman of Affinity Interactive, James Zenni said: “We are pleased to complete this transaction, which establishes Affinity Interactive as a leader in today’s gaming industry with a world class digital offering and significant growth opportunities.
